    I have been working at GNC part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I personally work in a great area so my customers are very nice and easy to work with, there's always something I can learn from them. GNC is a great job because it encourages commission selling and selling to hit company numbers.

    Cons

    Honestly nothing, the pay is good and I'm grateful to be apart of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The computers can be slow at times and I wish my store carried more products.

    Pros

    The job was a good job with flexible hours. Allows you to learn about supplements. The job also allows you to help people reach their health goals.

    Cons

    The job is minimum wage which is not the best pay. Their is not much room for personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management could consider discussing more room for personal growth with in the company. Management should also consider some better leadership goals.

    I have been working at GNC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Quality control: over 200 quality checks for consumer safety and guaranteed potency (This could explain why hundreds of products never make it to GNC shelves) . Innovative: constantly bringing to light new companies and revolutionary health, fitness and beauty products. Work for Franchise you will be much happier, creative flexibility pricing an customer service is far better.

    Cons

    Salary, I've worked for both Corporate and Franchise GNC..My salary was better at corporate but the stress and demands are greater. Franchise is wonderful but as a manager there will be no room to advance. :) things to ponder...Dozens of competitive, innovative and revolutionary products that never make it to GNC shelves...possibly quality control?
