    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    The process is informal. You will be called in to talk to a store manager and not a professional HR rep. He or she will want you to talk about sales experience not just your experience with products. Associates can be trained on products, what managers really want to know is that you understand this is first and foremost a sales job, and that you want a sales job and that you will be good at making sales. After the interview you will do a follow up phone interview with another manager. Just stay focused on being friendly, easy to work with and committed to making sales.

    Interview Questions
    • You may be handed a product you are unfamiliar with and asked by the manager to sale it to him or her.   View Answer

    They ask you the usual questions, most managers aren't professional enough or educated enough to actually ask insightful or unique questions....just study basic ones and you'll be fine.
