    I have been working at Vitacost full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Medium size company backed by large multi-billion dollar corporation.People take pride in roles. There is opportunity for growth if you work hard and are self motivated. Employees treat each other with respect and collaboration. The work is fulfilling, and the company is growing at rapid rates far above any other company in this economy. Really smart people who are extremely helpful in building greatness together, all out for the same goal… More aligned than any other company I have ever worked for. Senior leadership is smart, motivating,upbeat and supportive. The leadership treats you like people, not like "staff"--- People are 'KIND' to one another, and extremely helpful

    Cons

    There are still some people at this company that are not here for the right reasons, or are burnt out from previous leadership, and not happy. Those people should look at the positive side of things, or should look for other opportunities and not try to bring others down.(change the people or change the people) Its not the prettiest work space, and the lack of space can feel confining. The open work space is not for everyone. The biggest issue I can see is that people that move on from here feel the need to take to glass door to complain, they were unable to bring their negative mentality to "take down" the company while they were here, so they lash out once they leave, or were let go for poor performance. Not everyone will be a good fit within a role, to come to glass door and complain once you've left speaks more about the past employee that left than the company itself. Overall this place is a great place to work.-- Biggest Con… That Glassdoor even exists.-- The negative people on here are PURE sour grapes, and this site shouldn't influence others from joining such an innovative, upbeat and fun company. I have been with the company over 5 years, and have had ups and downs like every other company-- this company's work life balance is second to no other retailer, or commerce company.and the atmosphere gets better with every single day!--

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boca Raton, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boca Raton, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Vitacost.

    Interview Details

    An executive assistance helped book travel arrangements, including flights, hotel accommodations, car rental and reimbursement for meals. The interview was meant to include 4-one hour blocks talking to separate people. Only two of those showed up and the interview ended a half an hour early. The company also has a strict guest/visitor policy and I was given a really hokey looking scrap of paper (meant to be a name tag) written with pen that someone came up with at the last second.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions were low-ball. One of the HR Representatives simply asked "so you think you can do this job?" before simply talking about the company, area, and when I could begin.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Several emails and a phone call were sent back and forth. The company was at least generous in terms of negotiating salary.
