Processor I/Production Coordinator (Current Employee) – Idaho Falls, ID – April 4, 2016
The production department is considered the ugly step child of this company. The equipment used is out dated and substandard for the level of productivity that is expected. The employees are managed with negative reinforcement, and are rarely given praise for what is done. There is no efficiency in how production is run. Suggestions of how to improve efficiency are discounted and excuses are given as to why the suggestions cannot be implemented.
Product Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Idaho Falls, ID – February 24, 2016
This company has many products that are beneficial and providing that opportunity to others through order taking was successful. Not so easy was upselling items you knew the person didn't want or need. Advancement for women not encouraged.
Sales/ Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Rexburg, ID – May 18, 2016
Great place to work if you are a college student. It would be nice if they could facilitate moving into other fields in the company but HR has no connections/ interest in helping you moving to say product management, engineering, manufacturing. so in the end people end up leaving because there is no room to grow in the company.
Direct Referral Agent/IBO (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 30, 2016
As an IBO fo melaleuca I learned how to overcome my shyness and how to build a business from the ground up. I always learned that it take real decision making on how you run a fully functional prosperous organization without fail.
Independent Marketing Executive (Current Employee) – Puyallup, WA – June 8, 2016
It is always a pleasure to show a family how to live toxic free with consumable goods that a green, safe for your family, safe for the environment, and saves you time and money, delivered to your door.
Distribution Worker (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN. – June 12, 2015
Repetitive, mind-numbing factory work in a noisy environment with freakishly-odd and intellectually-challenged coworkers. Management is shockingly third-rate. The hardest part of the job is dragging yourself back into work day after day to your loser job. If you stay for any length of time you will lose your soul. Seriously.
Customer Service Associate Call Center (Former Employee) – Idaho Falls – October 24, 2014
Good place to work. Amazing benefits. For those with little or no education looking for an entry level position you won't find a better paying job. The upper level positions are often payed slightly below national averages, but the benefits more than make up for it. Lots of room for advancement with lots of inside hires, however this sometimes creates a situation where incompetent and unqualified employees move up the ladder into management positions simply because of their longevity with the company. Overall one of the better places to work that you'll find.
As a side note: there are many reviews done by Independent Marketing Executives. It is important to note that they are independent promoters of the company and have a very different experience than Melaleuca employees.
Customer Service, Wellness, and Enrollments (Former Employee) – Rexburg, Idaho – November 13, 2014
Melaleuca has two call centers. One in Rexburg, Idaho and another in Idaho Falls, Idaho. They were very accommodating to my college schedule. The management team is incredibly supportive. We are always encouraged to ask questions. They work with employees to help them when they are struggling with work. It is a very positive environment. They gave 1-hour long lunches to full-time employees when I worked at the call center. They reward employees for striving to do the best on each and every call. The only downside I would say is that it is of course a call center and this job is not for everyone. That being said, they do have many positions within the call center to which people can apply. On a full-time schedule employees will get about 19 minutes in total each day that they can be off the phones. There are small downsides, but many good benefits.
great management, good benefits, and generally great employees
A great place to work. The only issue was that compensation was based solely on commission. The most enjoyable part of the job was the support of the co-workers. The worst part of the job was only being able to make money based on sales.
Regional Sales (Former Employee) – Idaho Falls, ID – November 9, 2012
Unless you're Mormon and graduated from BYU, don't plan on climbing the corporate ladder here. Pay sucks, benefits are okay, but the employees are constantly stabbing each other in the back and morale sucks. Their products are overpriced and the majority of their "marketing executives" pushing their business are spending loads more than they ever make. I've seen it time and time again...
benefits were fair
pay, politics, overly religious mormon ceo & management
