    I worked at GNC part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Higher than average pay for retail.
    Gain knowledge about all the supplements and herbs
    After you complete training, you are able to self-manage the store
    Fun place to work

    Cons

    It's minimum wage + commission, so the pay will be low if you aren't a decent salesman
    The company requires that 40% or so of all sales must be GNC brand
    Overpriced items

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I can't think of anything to change. There are a few things that fellow employees complained about, but everything seemed to work fine for me.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GNC.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two people, with one taking the lead. The person who I would have reported to directly did not ask questions but did provide information about the job. The direct supervisor seemed like a very cordial and experienced person (who I might have enjoyed reporting to), however, the lead interviewer kept stressing negatives about the job to an unreasonable degree. Once the candidate conveys that a particular aspect of the role (whether that be system related or function related) is not at all objectionable, then it is time to move on. The interviewer can certainly pose challenging questions for the purpose of vetting, but should demonstrate professionalism and loyalty to the company and not spend most of the interview making negative commentary about the work environment, the system, or the position. The lead also took me back down to the lobby to return the access card (normal), but to tell me which exit door was closer to the T-Station (very odd, given the centrality of their office tower - great location!) There was an expedited hiring process underway, so my experience may have been atypical in regard to how long it took for them to make an offer to the candidate they selected.
