Approves of CEO

Pros

-fair pay -great discount -room for advancement -most people working have similair interests and are interested in healthy living/working out/nutrition/etc

Cons

-working in the store can get very competitive and the associates are sometimes pushed too hard to sell products just to meet the goal numbers

Advice to Management

- at the store level, managment should reconsider some of the goal numbers..not all stores have the ability/customer base to make such high numbers

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is competitive. The customer flow is non-stressful, and apparently the margin is good. There are some well meaning co-managers.

    Cons

    My RSD has little time for his managers, and has, so far, offered nothing but negative reinforcement. "You had BETTER do......" was heard several times during a bi-annual meeting. (not so subtle threats?). You are expected to sell exactly what the company wants you to sell, and you and your part timers are expected to work alone at the store. You are given stated requirements for staffing, that are impossible to meet. You give a part timer a key to the business after minimal training, offer them commission, and then constantly badger them to sell things that they won't get commission on!

    Advice to Management

    Training. Training. Especially for upper management. Teach them how to have fun, and try at least a little positivity. Also, the "KPI's" are the only way you motivate your staff/ constantly holding the threat of losing their jobs over their heads. You won't have happy, motivated staff, this way, if you ask me.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Commission, but it is small and hard to come by, management tells you to sell GNC products, but they have much lower commissions

    Cons

    Communication between upper and middle management is almost nonexistent, each level of manager has a different view of how the store should look and be run
