I worked at GNC part-time for more than a year

Pros

Good Products. I enjoy staying healthy/working out, so being in the store was fun for me. Commission on some items is nice too, can make extra money by selling certain things.

Cons

Wage (low), lots and lots of busy work. Setting up and taking down displays, lots of cleaning and stocking.

    Pros

    -Relaxed workenvironment.
    -You're by yourself, so you don't have to worry about any annoying fellow employees.
    -Extensive company training, most of the info is learned on the job as well through repetition.
    -Fair pay for the work you do.
    -Very reasonable work hours.

    Cons

    -Pay for managers is menial.
    -Senior Store Managers and regional sales directors never have a clear idea on what to agree on.
    -Even the word "planograms" makes my skin crawl.
    -The stocking routine is faulty for some stores.
    -Made unreasonable demands some times.
    -Any managers above store managers are generally very conceited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Planograms take place too often and are mostly irrational. Make it good, make it last for a while. Sometimes, I'd think planograms were to be done just to give employees something to do.

    I worked at GNC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing. They sucked they say to only work when punched in but yet want stuff done that is unable to complete in 40 hours....place is a joke.

    Cons

    Everything, I got two weeks of training. Basically what they train their sales associates. I didn't understand anything!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training your team!!!!!!!!!! And stop telling your team that you are going to come to the store to assist/train and never show up...
