I worked at GNC part-time (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.

    I worked at GNC part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Can learn a lot about supplements including natural herbs and amino acids, pay can be good if you're in a good location, discount.

    Cons

    Can be incredibly boring especially if it's not gold card week, constantly forced to push gold cards and GNC products including some really useless stuff, commission is only given on certain items and some of the best sellers gave none, constantly reprimanded for not selling people stuff they didn't want or didn't need, our manager gave herself all the best shifts including pulling a double on the first day of gold card week, if you're in a bad location your traffic can be non-existant which means your sales and commissions are too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the staff more through better commissions and offer better sales since online supplement market is often cheaper and more convenient.

    I worked at GNC part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    30 percent discount on products, increase knowledge of health, beauty and weightloss...decent hours, direct deposit, opportunities to advance in the company, commission on some products

    Cons

    very, very low pay (pretty much minimum wage) the products that they want you t sell the most of will not earn you commission...reprimanded if youre not hitting your numbers all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward and appreciate sales associates

    Doesn't Recommend
