    Over-worked, underpaid, what else is new? GNC is no different than any other corporation.

    Pros

    There really are no pros.

    Cons

    Expected to sell GNC brand products only, yet you get virtually no commission for doing so. They expect world class salesmanship with no incentive and little pay. For the amount of skill needed to sell well for GNC, you could make 20 times the amount in a real sales job like cellphones, car sales, furniture sales, and clothing sales...No benefits for part timers, they limit your hours to 29 a week because they are too cheap to pay for your insurance, and they over work you by duplication of efforts, putting up tags and resetting the store every month for minimum wage. Management does whatever they want with no accountability. RSD's don't give a fig about you unless you're a top performer, if not, you don't exist to them. Skip this job at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real job and work with a company that can appreciate your efforts and compensate you accordingly. GNC is a joke.
