I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe

Pros

It is truly a pleasure helping customers with wellness goals, phenomenal product selection, competitive pricing makes selling easy. Active involvement in community.

Cons

Lack of clarity and consistency on execution of policies and procedures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Purchase many copies of the book Drive by Daniel H. Pink and distribute them among upper management. Make them required reading and consider applying some truly progressive philosophies to the running of the company. Particularly in areas regarding pay (not excessive, just "enough") and instilling feelings of autonomy, especially at all levels of store management.

    Great place to if you are passionate about wellness, but very "clickish" at upper level which leads to some unfairness.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are passionate about wellness. There is great opportunity to gain valuable knowledge on nutrition health and wellness.

    Cons

    Some unfairness in upper management. Very "click" oriented. Unruly customers daily. No upper management support when dealing with unruly customers (company will always side with the customer regardless). Distrust and false accusations of policy/procedure violations are rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your Store Managers. Listen to your Store Managers as they can give you true feedback on what "really" happens on a day-to-day basis. Give your Store Managers more autonomy to discipline and/or terminate. Use the same step-by-step, hear all sides procedure for terminating Store Managers as used to terminate subordinates.

    Pros

    Very easy job. Low stress and you get to help people. If you have a good staff then work is pleasant.

    Cons

    Upper management needs some work. More guidance on how to make sales would help. Financial support from home office would also be a plus.
