    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GNC.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    I asked for extra vacation and received it.

    I applied online – interviewed at GNC.

    Interview

    Talked to a few different people, interviewed by myself, everyone was very polite and I didn't feel intimidated at all... Asked very typical questions: "Tell me about yourself", "What do you want to gain out of this internship?" "Tell me about your previous job" "Have you had any other internships?" etc.

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

    Interview

    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.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at GNC.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    Nothing was negotiable. Either take the minimum wage and hope for good commissions, or don't take the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at GNC (Atlanta, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty standard, I came and submitted my resume in person. Actually ran into the manager and talked to him about the position and my past experience. He gave me his number and told me to call him the following Monday to set up an interview which I did. I interviewed with him and the other store manager where they asked pretty basic questions like what is my sales experience and would I be okay with the pay.
