    Upper Management does not understand the product they represent, nor the culture of its clientele. Upper Management is more concerned with turning a profit then supporting the people who sell or buy their product.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics. This business is about "People" both the associates who represent the company and the customers they serve.

    Pros

    The training at the Vitamin Shoppe is the best I have seen anywhere. The benefits are wonderful for full-time, and I was surprised to see they had a fairly comprehensive part-time package, as well. Being able to really help people is a huge plus, though it can be challenging. Definitely a great place to work if you want to develop service skills and learn how to adapt.

    Cons

    Management is generally not great in my district, and no one higher up is really very honest or open with you. They have a tendency to force people to quit instead of firing them, and they are all about development plans to address issues, which I believe to be very ineffective. The base pay for part-time employees is sad, considering all you are required to do.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to see management really listening to their teams, and connecting with them, instead of existing in their happy-positive environment, which never got anything done. I understand the theory behind their methods, but the way they employ them could use a lot of work.
