Awesome company

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I really love Herbalife as a company. However you are your own boss and it your own business so you will not receive a normal or regular paycheck like you do working for someone else. If you expect to not receive a paycheck then you will not be disappointed. That being said you have the potential to make a lot of money but you have to be willing to put in the work in order to do so.


Positive environment


No regular pay

Productively positive work environment!

Positive Active Lifestyle. Our competition on a personal level is only with whom we were yesterday, and so each new day, we spend quality time on personal development. Striving to better than what we ourselves were yesterday by only 1 percent!


Educating the consumer upon nutritional value of product!

Hard work

When you work for Herbalife, you’re considered an independent distributor, so if you don’t sell product then you don’t make any money. It’s a hard company but it’s worth it if you are good at selling product

You have to put in the time, and effort. It extends your comfort zone, and forces to you attempt new things to achieve success. Recommend for those who have a large community.

Great experience

Positive experience overall

Working for Herbalife allows me to have a flexible schedule and be my own boss. I enjoy learning about new products and sales tips. I'm a product of the product, not just an Independent Distributor. I'm part of a great support group and together we are achieving our health/fitness goals.

Love this Company

I was doing Herbalife for losing weight til I saw the lifestyle I can have. I’m able to work from home anywhere even on vacations. Don’t think this place can get you fancy cars, houses, the “Luxury life”. BUT if you work hard you can reach to your goals. I have seen people making great money and still live in apartments, (you’ll think that with that money should get a house) guys they are happy and goals can’t come with a flip of a switch. We work hard but happy when we do. Keep up with good work you will be rewarded. Herbalife makes sure they take good care of us. You want a great career to last this is the best I have no negative words about Herbalife I took me 4 years to realize I could have this life long time ago. DONT JUDGE TIL YOU TRY

Great company if you have money to invest to start out

Great company if you have money to invest to start out. You learn a LOT but pay for it also. Learned a healthy lifestyle is reachable. Learned self motivation skills.


Learn a LOT


Need $$$$ to invest to get a start and need to be in a populated city.

unrealistic company to work for

It is very difficult to stay successful because you basically have to invest a lot of your money to do go anywhere in this company. Products are very expensive to consumers. They do work but it is hard to sell them because of the price. At least in the area I live.


flexible hours


Money you have to spend to stay productive

Fun talking to people everyday motivating them

At moment I’m working in a club where I give exercises to people that are working on losing weight and feel more confident in themselves with more energy and able to eat more healthy and feel amazing. I coach them everyday and also keeping up with them weekly asking them frequently how they feel what they eat balancing their nutrition and alerting them what to watch out that can harm their body.


Meeting with new people.


Hard to convince people to change.

Great place to grow your self and indepence

LOVE being an Herbalife Distributor! I get to learn a lot about myself,my flaws, and how to become the best version of myself. The integrity of the company is mind blowing. The culture is something I've never experienced before. Everyone is so positive and want to see you succeed. The hardest part of the job is working on yourself so that you can best help others. The best part of this job is that it doesn't feel like work, you get to get in the best shape of your life, get paid to help others do the same, work from wherever you want, and create your own schedule.

Plenty of opportunity,and or advancement!Motivated individuals have the ability to progress gradually towards obtaining finacial freedom,good health.

Typical day at work would begin with me preparing my healthy blend of protein shake,and or herbal supplements.Four days out of a five day week Im headed tothe gym to exercise,and scout for health conscious consumers. Also social media is normally apart of my daily marketing routine; and there I do follow up's,leads for potential clients.Being a independent distributor with no over head,means I had to plan,and host product parties as a forum to promote the product line.Being that the better half of the products are prepared either in the blender(home appliance),or by adding water.These events required demonstrations,etc..Also networking with other distributors has aided me in streghthening my client base and contacts.


Employee discount, whole sale


seasonal sales, people arent typically concerned about health
