    I have been working at GNC part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to earn a decent pay for hours worked if you can get the hours. Eat at work. Work under minimal supervision.

    Cons

    Little training on products that require extensive knowledge to make sales. Difficult to attain the hours needed to maintain a decent living wage. Little room for advancement considering the small staff the stores operate on, employees in higher positions usually stick around in my experience. Recent changes in store policy has cut commission significantly.

    Pros

    Employee discount of 30%
    You have all the time in the world to work on anything but GNC because no one comes in half the time -homework, side projects, other job applications

    Cons

    2 billion dollar Company that doesn't give 2 cents about you. Work hard, brutal deadlines for no reward for exceeding sales plan or comps. Best left for those who have no degree and are looking for a bottom of the barrel salary job with mediocre benefits for FULL TIME employees only. Your a replaceable piece of their corporate puzzle. Constant turnover as part timers receive minimum wage and no hours. Its a sales job. Selling products that mostly do not work to unsuspecting people. If you want to live on 25k a year this is for you. Get some manager experience and get out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees of this company work so hard for no reward. Give them a voice or some incentive to help your 2 billion dollar revenue grow. Anyone who has any knowledge of corporate structure will see this is a waste of time very quickly.
