    GNC Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at GNC in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the location when they weren't hiring, and received a call about a month later. Went in for the interview and it was done mostly by my local store manager, who asked me a lot of questions about myself, my goals, and how I would handle certain situations. Then, the regional manager came out and talked to me about the company itself and asked if I was still interested in the job.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Drum, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from the GNC manager asking if I was still interested in the position (it had been about a month since I put in the application) and why I wanted to work specifically for GNC, we then scheduled a face to face interview. Found a table in the food court and he asked roughtly 15-20 questions which seemed like a ton!! I got a call about 2 days later to come in for a second interview but I declined.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a situation when you dealt with confrontation and how did you handle it.
      Describe a time when you solved a problem.
       
      Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was informed it was minimum wage and you are evaluated every few months to make sure you "don't sell too much GNC or too much of a third party product", that basically you had to keep everything in balance or be put on probation. I don't really like the idea that I would have to push a product not necessarily because I think it's the best one for the customer but because I have a certain quota to meet. Just isn't the job for me!
