    Current Employee - GNC Store Manager in Rochester, MN

    Pros

    Free samples of supplements. Great opportunity to learn about products.

    Cons

    Forced sales. Job is threatened unless Key point indicators are made each month

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the Key Point Indicators. Customers can not stand the employees because of the pushy sales. Done tell employees that a sale is a sale then threaten job loss if KPI's are not met.

    Pros

    You earn commission on some products that you sell. They have a generous employee discount and somewhat flexible hours if you are working at a store that is not understaffed.

    Cons

    They only pay minimum wage and expect you to be an expert in vitamins. For what they expect you to know, they really ought to pay more. You are usually working alone, so it's difficult to find time to eat lunch when the store is busy. They don't provide enough training.
