I have been working at GNC full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The customers are great! Helping people meet their fitness goals no matter how big or small. 30% off is nice. All the knowledge you obtain from 3rd party companies as well as GNC. It can be a lot of fun!

Cons

High Stress, have seen many great employee's move on due to the stress. Constant nagging about not keeping numbers on certain products to a minimum nevermind that your dollars are way up. Hard to keep employee's due to all the micro managing and bickering about hitting those numbers not paid enough at minimum wage plus commission to put up with it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the managers truely manage their stores. Bring back the ordering on our own. Allow managers to hire someone without them having to be interviewed by 2 or more people at a time. GNC is a great company it's just got to stop worrying so much about the numbers of those certain items and look at the bottom dollar if a store is making 10% more $ be happy! Otherwise it's making it to where no one wants to sell that 1 bar to the customer, or that water. And every penny adds up.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount can be good if you look for the close dated products.

    Cons

    Not enough associates per shift. Employees are expected to sell supplements, perform all register transactions, inventory and bank deposits all by themselves. Not able to take bathroom breaks, without having to close the doors for a few minutes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have at least 2 employees per shift. Give employees incentives to sell company brands and get rid of the "one more sale" chews.
