I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Vast knowledge of vitamins available from the company!
-Room for growth if you are interested and put the work in!
-Free healthy awards club card.
-Good metrics communication from DM.
-Amazing DM support, I keep reading bad reviews on DM's and I can honestly say my DM is always available if I need to reach out for assistance!

Cons

-NO balance between family life/work, while I understand it falls on how the staff is trained, the company does not hint at comp time for hours that go beyond the 45+ hour mark. Last week I put in 65 hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While I realize the burden of coverage falls on the SM, the company needs to approve more hours for coverage for SM and allow them TO HAVE a family life.

    Pros

    25% discount
    Easy
    Learn a lot on health and supplements

    Cons

    If you don't have a passion for supplements don't even bother. Pay is awful for any position in this company, the store manager just sucks ups to the district manager, customers worship dr. oz and come in asking for whatever he says, there will be times where you have the most pointless group motivational meetings on your day off, pointless conference calls, manager is on the phone the whole time, and requires every shift to start with useless stretching

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with the employees to see how they rate their manager
