Rewarding job, great position to polish key skills needed.

Part Time Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsCommission structure benefits associates.
Most managers flexible and willing to work around your schedule.
Not hard to advance in the company should you desire.
Great lateral movement from store to store; designed to help part time associates accrue as many hours as possible.
Great discount and monthly employee goodies should you be interested.

ConsMinimum wage. Don't expect more than this part time, because you won't get it.
Some of the management needs to look the part; you work for a health/wellness company, it helps your credibility when you aren't morbidly obese.
Selling tactics taught by upper management are gray area tactics; borderline lawsuit potential.
Obnoxiously high sales goals in all areas so you have to keep track of what everyone buys all the time throughout your shift, which is challenging if you work in a bigger store.

Advice to Senior ManagementUtilize the strength's of your associates' personalities; don't use cookie cutter sales tactics because one-size doesn't fit all. Also, it would really help go a long way to establish customer relationships if you didn't weigh 350-400 pounds @ 40ish% bodyfat. Look like you take the products and live the lifestyle; customers look at you and go "Wow!". It'll earn more for the store.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
