I worked at Vitamin Shoppe full-time (more than an year)Pros
Really interesting people tend to gravitate to the company. Very rarely do you end up with someone completely incompetent. It can be fun when you first start off, though it quickly burns you out.Cons
I worked there for almost two years under six different managers in three different locations and two states. I saw it all on in terms of the nitty gritty of the company workings. I WISH someone in corporate would get out of their bubble and off their high horses to ask how it really works in their stores. The company sets unrealistic goals for most of their stores, fails to give proper support and acknowledgement for any success, beats down on any flaws, does not give stores enough manpower capability and too many tasks for the employees, and pays them laughable salaries. Then they have the gall to wonder why people want to leave.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop listening to your brown nosers and observe your stores from the outside without employee knowledge. You will be surprised to see what goes on and who really does the work. I have had six different managers, and until I got to Texas, I never had a complaint about any of them. I lost faith in the company when I saw them begin to promote people who were all talk and promises of great store feats and expectations. These were the people who would sit on their hands all day in front of computer screens, or would talk the ears off an associate or customer and never break away.
Best advice: Retrain your managers! They are there to manage their store! Not sit in front of a computer screen or talk their heads off.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
