    Current Employee - GNC Store Manager in Orlando, FL
    Current Employee - GNC Store Manager in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at GNC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Quality control: over 200 quality checks for consumer safety and guaranteed potency (This could explain why hundreds of products never make it to GNC shelves) . Innovative: constantly bringing to light new companies and revolutionary health, fitness and beauty products. Work for Franchise you will be much happier, creative flexibility pricing an customer service is far better.

    Cons

    Salary, I've worked for both Corporate and Franchise GNC..My salary was better at corporate but the stress and demands are greater. Franchise is wonderful but as a manager there will be no room to advance. :) things to ponder...Dozens of competitive, innovative and revolutionary products that never make it to GNC shelves...possibly quality control?

    Application Details

    Interview Details

    Very long process. They want you but keep you waiting to hear back. It is just a process so don't worry about it. The HR person does ask you a few questions over the phone about your job history. She was even good about asking about why I would leave my current job and what I liked about my job. She asked why GNC. I did my research on GNC - you don't need to. They are just looking for bodies. They make the job sound important though but it sure is not.
