    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.

    Pros

    I like my co-workers, helping the customers get the best out of life and the 30% employee discount.

    Cons

    I will be putting in my 2weeks notice and have only worked for the company for 5 months.
    Extremely unorganized company with no room for growth. They force there ppl to lie to customers in order to achieve sales goals. There is NO support for sales associates who are only getting paid minimum wage. We are constantly are being threatened to lose our jobs if we fail to meet sales goal, yet the training is horrendous at best. They don't care at all about the ppl who work for them and because of that there is high turnover. Upper and senior mgmt are far removed from what's really going on in the stores. GNC will never be a top 500 company to work for.
