La Weight Loss ex-employee warns of closings. Don’t prepay!



“I also am an ex-employee of LA Weight Loss. I do not know when this company is going under but if they are not I will be VERY Shocked!

I for one loved working for LAWL and will miss helping my clients but felt completely lied to all of the time by our owners! As part of our jobs we would sell large bulks of product that the clients would pick up at their weekly visits, this could run up into the $1000.00’s easily! No longer knowing if you are unknowingly lying to your clients about product coming in, whether they would receive refunds and rebates that they were waiting for, whether they would ever receive all of the product that they had invested in made many of us lose our sleep at night!

I believe that the plan works and have saw it change so many peoples lives, however to much pushy sales and greed has run this company in the ground! So Very Sad! I am just waiting to hear any day that LA Weight Loss is no more! : (” Anonymous Employee

  1. I worked for LAWL years ago and it what a joke….The clients were wonderful and I loved working with them. However, management was a joke, the pay and commission structure was ridiculous. It was about just selling your clients everything and anything just to make a quota. They didnt give a crap about the clients.

  2. La Weight Loss is closing in Evansville,vincennes, and Tara Haute….Get products they will be working m,w,f only next 2 wks….

  3. I worked for LAWL for 3 years…was treated like CRAP from upper mgmt, the whole thing was always a drama scene. I would like to mention names here but shouldnt….there MOTO was “MAKE THEM CRY AND THEY WILL BUY” You know who you are..

    Seriously I feel for the members. I have never had a weight problem but I know the pain of it especially when you are promised this “program”

    I quit before the big shut down because I just couldnt lie anymore, couldnt sleep at night. I went form 60-70 grand to a $10.00 an hour job…but I slept at night.

    The big Vegas meeting was like a PLAYBOY function. All these chicks dressed sooo unprofesionally and Vaughn loving all the short skirts and fake boobs…well look where you are now. You deserve it.

    Whoever came up with this idea is genious! Now most of this “hard ass” upper mgmt is now UNEMPLOYED. This is because you have no talent. Good luck! This is your payback.

    As for all the members, I personally apologize.

  4. I AM AN EX-EMPOLOYEE OF LA WL AND THE COMPANY TO SAY THE LEAST
    WAS UNETHICAL. THEY HIRED HOOCHIE MOMMAS TO SALE THEIR SERVICE AND PRODUCTS…I.E. WHO WANT TO SEE YOUR FAKE BOOBS WHILE YOU DISCUSS A DIET PLAN TO VUNERABLE CLIENT SINCERELY TRYING TO CHANGE THEIR EATING HABITS. THEY FORCED ME OUT BECAUSE I CARED ABOUT MY CLIENTS, I COULD NOT LIE TO THEM. THE SOY BARS WERE SO EXPENSIVE, AND MAY CLIENT PURCHASED IN LARGE QUANTITIES PROBABLY NEVER RECIEVING WHAT THEY ACTUALLY PURCHASED. I AM HAPPY THEY ARE CLOSING MANY STORES, IM SURE SOON THE ENTIRE OPERATION WILL BE SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!!

  5. WHEN I STARTED WITH THE COMPANY IT WAS WONDERFUL! I LOVED THE CLIENTS IT WAS GREAT AT FIRST! THE V.P. WOULD COME TO ALL OF THE CENTERS ACTING AS THOUGH SHE CARED WHEN WE ALL KNEW IT WAS B.S. AND ALSO SHE WAS JUST TRYING TO GET ASS MUCH MONEY AS SHE COULD. SHE WOULD ONLY SPEAK TO YOU IF YOU WERE GENERATING ALOT OF MONEY THEN YOU WERE HER BEST FRIEND IF YOU DIDNT SHE DIDNT EVEN SPEAK. ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT TRAINERS WOULD COME TO THE CENTERS AND TRY TO TELL YOU HOW TO SELL THE PRODUCTS AND THEY HAD NEVER DONE SALES BEFORE AND TO BOOT THEY WERE ALL LIKE A SIZE 2 THE CLIENTS THAT WERE COMING IN WERE LIKE WHO ARE THOSE WOMEN AND HOW ARE THEY GOING TO TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS THEY DON’T LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE ANY WEIGHT LOSS PROBLEMS AT ALL THEY ARE TINY. DON’T GET ME WRONG THE PRGRAM ITSELF WORKS BECAUSE ANYTIME YOU ARE PROPERLY COMBINING FOODS YOU WILL ULTIMATELY LOSE WEIGHT. WHEN REALLY ONCE I BEGAN TO REALIZE THE TRICKS TO THE TRADE THE LA LITES I SAID THAT IS HOW THEY REALLY MAKE ALL THE MONRY THEY WERE $16 PER BOX AND ALL THE PRODUCTS WERE SUPER OVERPRICED. IF WE THE EMPLOYEES COULD BUY IT FOR HALF PRICE WHAT WAS THE COMPANY PAYING FOR IT? MY GUESS IS LITTLE OF NOTHING WHEN THEY WERE SUPPLYING TO CENTERS NATIONWIDE. LA LA LA, TRUE ENOUGH IT WAS GOOD AT FIRST THEN DOWNHILL IT WENT. THE V.P. STOP COMING AROUND, CALLING, OR EMAILING AND ALL OF THE UPBEAT SIZE TWO TRAINERS STOPPED COMING AROUND AND THEN NEW REPORTS WERE AIRED AND DOWNHILL LA WEIGHT LOSS CENTERS WENT. THEN CENTERS BEGAN CLOSING ONE BY ONE. CLIENTS WERE LOSING THEIR MONEY AND THEIR PRODUCTS AND THERE ISNT A WAY TO CONTACT CORPORATE, WELL, THERE IS HOWEVER YOU’LL NEVER SPEAK TO ANYONE BECAUSE THEY’LL NEVER ANSWER. CLIENTS I’M SORRY IF THIS IS HAPPENING TO YOU, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT HOW TO GET YOUR MONEY CONTACT ME AND I’LL GIVE YOU ALL THE INFORMATION I HAVE TO HELP YOU. EMPLOYEES IF YOU HAVENT GOTTEN ALL OF YOUR PAY AND YOU WORKED FOR LA WEIGHT LOSS CENTERS LLC. CONTACT ME AND I’LL TELL YOU HOW I GOT MINE BECAUSE THEY WILL TRY AND SCREW YOU OUT OF WHAT IS OWED TO YOU. GOOD LUCK AND TRY TO GET A CAREER FOR YOURSELF AND NOT JUST A JOB!

  6. I CALLED CORPORATE AND ASKED FOR THE PAYROLL DEPT. YOU WILL GET ALOT OF ANSWERING SERVICES HOWEVER, LEAVE A MESSAGE AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ALL THAT IS OWED TO YOU IN WRITING BECAUSE THEY’LL TRY AND SAY THAT WHOMEVER TOLD YOU WHATEVER THEY TOLD YOU DIDNT FOLLOW THE POLICY. WHEN REALLY AS WE KNOW, THEY DON’T HAVE A POLICY IT’S PRETTY MUCH AT WILL WHATEVER! ALSO YOU MAY WANT TO CONTACT PAYROLL AT LA WEIGHTLOSS.COM LET ME KNOW WHAT KIND OF RESULTS YOU GET.

    GOOD LUCK

  7. I’am currently working at Lato, Ive been their when it was pure weight loss, so I know how it works, cutting hours, leaving the manager to run the bussiness them selves and now it’s happening again, products our not coming in, my pay check has been short pay, i’am also concrned for the loyal clients, It breaks my heart, I’ve ben their for four years, now i feel we well be next!!!!

  8. I worked at LAWL in Charlotte are NC. I was let go for caring too much about the clients. I got inside word that our stores were closing down and though I did not tell the clients (tho I wish I would have) I did tell them to get all of their products because so many were closing down and I wanted them to be safe. When our District Mgr heard of this she let me go and held a big meeting for all the centers in north and south Carolinas assuring them that I was bitter and full of lies, that in fact they were growing and would not be closing…….6 weeks later low and behold all my friends went to work to find the locks changed and notes on the doors. Worst place I’ve ever worked, all the upper management got EXACTLY what they deserved, my heart goes out to all the clients though, good luck.
