    GNC Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at GNC in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from a manager a week prior to the interview and scheduled it for the upcoming Monday. I arrived 20 minutes prior and introduced myself to the manager, however she was unable to accommodate me with the interview since she was the sole individual working there at the time. I returned after grabbing a coffee 5 minutes before my interview was scheduled and had a pretty informal conversation with her as well as another manager.

    They were pretty laid back and just inquired as to my knowledge of sales, prior experience, as well as if I had any knowledge regarding the products they carried. At the end of the interview they each shook my hand and said they would be in touch. I received a call from the female manager the next day asking if I were available to begin on that Thursday.
