GNC Store Manager Interview

GNC Store Manager

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at GNC.

Interview Details – GNC has a huge turn-over rate due to the unrealistic sales goals it demands from undertrained, under educated in the feild associates and managers. Getting hired there you are expected to provide proper clothing and to purchase GNC clothing out of the minimum wage you are paid, of course you are told that the clothing purchase of GNC logo items is optional, but if you want to advance in the company; pay the 25.00 for the shirt.

Interview Question – What do you think it means to work at GNC?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I was the manager and this is just to help out some desperate soul who really, really needs a job, quick

Very Difficult Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Fort Drum, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GNC in April 2013.

Interview Details – The gentleman who called me to set up for the interview was friendly and seemed very interested in having me as an employee. He made it seem like I was the only person who had received a call for the job.

Interview Question – I can't remember exactly how the question was worded, but it was very specific and not something that everyone would know right off the top of their head. I gave my best answer and the man interviewing me seemed to accept it. He then told me to hold on for a moment and he walked away. About 20 minutes later, he returned to tell me that they had a bunch more people to interview and he would let me know either way within a week - I never heard back from them.   Answer Question
