GNC's manufacturinf division Nutra is stagnant & re-active

(Former Employee) Greenville, SC

ProsI worked for Nutra, the manufacturing division of GNC. Employee discount is great 40% and the majority of employees are absolutely wonderful to work with. Opportunities to get your hands on alot of different aspects of the job. Extremely interesting manufacturing process.

ConsNutra Manufacturing- GNC's manufacturing division
-discount is only honored in full at corporate stores
-facility is extremely lean & stressful with impossible expectations at times
-promotions are almost non existent
-compensation is benchmarked on "retail" even though this is a manufacturing facility. Pay is as competitive as it needs to be to retain talent
-Because of compensation it is often hard to find candidates with the skill set needed to perform the job effectively and efficiently
-Little to no budget for training/professional development
-Political
-Not much support from upper management or corporate on important issues
-reactive environement vs. proactive
-Everyone in the building has a chance at some kind of bonus except for support staff
-Corporate does not communicate well & the same perks offered are not offered to other divisions

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be more development from within. There are brilliant employees working at GNC-Nutra and they aren't appreciated or being rewarded for it. Invest in your employees and your company will prosper. Compensation isn't everything, but if you can't offer that you need to invest elsewhere.

    I have experienced constant negative reinforcement from upper management

    Store Manager (Current Employee) Nashville, TN

    I have been working at GNC


    Pros: The pay is competitive. The customer flow is non-stressful, and… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Training. Training. Especially for upper management. Teach them how to have fun, and try at least a little positivity. Also, the "KPI's"… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
