I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe

Pros

Pros:
Learn a lot about health supplements.
I enjoy my co-workers.
Meet many link minded people.
Friendly customers.
Love helping people get products to help aid in their health.
Some freedom in getting customers what they need.

Cons

Cons:
Pay is very low. Especially considering all that is required of you.
Advancement not that easy.
Criticism is more often the norm rather than praise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management (Regional and higher) don't seem to care about people.
My opinion matters little or not at all.
Again seems like their job is to be critical rather than help.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe

    Pros

    The amount of products and companies make learning a fun experience. One can learn enormous amounts of information on supplements through this company.

    Cons

    Poorly paid wages
    Incompetent upper management
    No support from company as a whole.
    Very hard to advance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that the employees at the store level are your face, your voice, and your connection to your customers; without them you have no business. Hiring knowledge employees, and paying them fair wages will increase your business tenfold.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
