    Accounts Receivable Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two people, with one taking the lead. The person who I would have reported to directly did not ask questions but did provide information about the job. The direct supervisor seemed like a very cordial and experienced person (who I might have enjoyed reporting to), however, the lead interviewer kept stressing negatives about the job to an unreasonable degree. Once the candidate conveys that a particular aspect of the role (whether that be system related or function related) is not at all objectionable, then it is time to move on. The interviewer can certainly pose challenging questions for the purpose of vetting, but should demonstrate professionalism and loyalty to the company and not spend most of the interview making negative commentary about the work environment, the system, or the position. The lead also took me back down to the lobby to return the access card (normal), but to tell me which exit door was closer to the T-Station (very odd, given the centrality of their office tower - great location!) There was an expedited hiring process underway, so my experience may have been atypical in regard to how long it took for them to make an offer to the candidate they selected.

    No real interview. I felt as if the position I was applying for wasn't a serious part of the company. I felt the interviewer didn't want to be there.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GNC in December 2014.

    I was called to interview with a Senior Manager. She was very nice and asked about previous work experience. She also asked if this position was a career or a temporary position for me. Be prepared to discuss your goals and what you can offer the company.(your strengths) If you make it through this interview you will have a second with an Area Manager.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GNC in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and had recieved a call back winthin a week or so. The call simply consisted of scheduling an interview. The manager who conducted the interview was pleasant to speak to and I believe that the interview went quite well. Toward the end of the interview I was told that I would be contacted within a week and that if I was not to call them. I waited the week and then I called however an employee had answerd the phone and told me that the manager was "on a garbage run" and that she would notify the manager of my call as soon as the had returned. I had never recieved a call back after that so I am assuming that they did not want to hire me which I was quite dissapointed about because It seemed like the kind of company that I would have liked working for.

    Regional Sales Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    Very long process. They want you but keep you waiting to hear back. It is just a process so don't worry about it. The HR person does ask you a few questions over the phone about your job history. She was even good about asking about why I would leave my current job and what I liked about my job. She asked why GNC. I did my research on GNC - you don't need to. They are just looking for bodies. They make the job sound important though but it sure is not.

    Talked to a few different people, interviewed by myself, everyone was very polite and I didn't feel intimidated at all...

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    I did a telephone screening with a store manager, followed by another interview this time face to face with the same store manager. I then interviewed with the Regional Sales Director and was offered the position. The first two interviews was very little talking on my end, just very informative job descriptions from the interviewer. The RSD got more in depth on my background.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    Several interviews to get hired. There are a lot of expectations from management. Everyone has to go online and fill out an application, but I don't feel like I would have been hired if I didn't go into a store and talk to someone about the job. Interviewing managers were extremely professional.
