Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Green Bay, WI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GNC in October 2010.

Interview Details – They want you to be passionate about the industry and have a legitimate interest in working in nutrition, homeopathy, etc. as a career path. Tell them your experience, why you're interested and that you want to make a career out of it and they won't even bother with the superfluous "tell me about a time someone disappointed you" type BS that seems standard these days.

Negotiation Details – There was debate on which store I would get, first I was offered Somersworth, and then was told with a phone call a couple days later that I was offered Seabrook. I told him I would have to think about it, and then accepted a day later.

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Fort Worth, TX

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at GNC in October 2011.

Interview Details – I was promoted from within so there really wasn't a hiring process, I told my manager I wanted to move up and about a month later it happened. However, I've learned that this company's turnover for managers are very high due to the lack of adults. Most of theses managers range 18-25 and it's drama central.
