    Pros

    If you love fitness, its amazing to learn about everything like herbs, suppliments etc. Good way to Help people.

    Cons

    minimum wage, small commission amounts on items, but GNC takes a percentage of it "GNC qualifier deduction". You will constantly strive to not get in trouble for what everyone else does. You have to push GNC products on everyone to make your percentages multi's, vitapaks, powders..

    Advice to Management

    Look your part, be business oriented. Dont take sides, or play politics.

    I worked at GNC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Helping customers improve their lives. The pay used to be really good but new managers are getting hired in for way less money.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment thanks to out of control job demands and sales goals. Tenured managers are being replaced for cheap labor. They have replaced a lot of very good and knowledgeable employees in the past couple years for people who can "sell" but can not run a store. Those new people end up not cutting it and having to be replaced with part time employees that were not ready for management. It is a vicious cycle that is getting worse and hurting the company.

    Advice to Management

    Their are some employees who truly care about the company and the customers. Show them you appreciate them.
