Pros

GNC has a phenomenal benefits plan as well as an on site gym and employee discounts. They match a great portion of your 401k and if GNC has a good year they will double their contribution for the calender year.

Cons

The company is very unstructured and doesn't do a great job of training their employees before throwing them into the fire.

Advice to Management

Implement better training programs as well as helping employees keep up with the newest software (i.e. Microsoft suite of products)

    Pros

    The biggest pro is that you are put in an environment where you are encouraged to learn constantly and given many tools to succeed.

    Cons

    The largest con is that a good piece of your job is commission sales. If you do not sell your commission items you make minimum wage. Also overall this company does not seem to treat their employees well either.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many incredibly talented people in this company who leave because of bad managers and the overall sometimes bad treatment of the employees. I believe you should have the RSD's and SSMs be periodically reviewed by the store associates.

  2. Other then the "Out to get you" Loss Prevention, who is always trying to get you no matter what, a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great pay, leader ship, career development, best products on the market.

    Cons

    Loss prevention department always trying to get you no matter how honest you are, sales goals that are increasingly high because of dishonest people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep LP from terminating employees for litle reason. If they are stealing thats one thing, but doing what they can to get sales is not a crime.
