    I worked at Vitamin Shoppe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have a true interest in supplements-this is a great place as one is surrounded by them.

    Cons

    Too many politics, lack of support from "upper" management, high work load to pay rate-as well as expectations of staff being far too high for what they pay, low to no payroll budget-(they are cutting back but won't tell you that-they will jsut throw higher paid managers who hold knowledge and passion to the curb)-constant change in policies and in store computer programs yet they expect noone to feel frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about the industry-take a real good look at who you are seperating from the company because of $-(if you want the company to succeed-the one's with passion should remain-suck up a few dollars in pay)-get policies, procedures in order and keep them for more than a year or two...stop the bs

    I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to learn and grow into positions of increased responsibility

    Cons

    No budget for new hires to get extra time to complete computer based training to enhance overall customer experience.

    Advice to Management

    Allow extra 1-2 hours a day in discretionary workload budget for new hires with zero supplement background to complete Progressive computer based training modules; especially in situations where you have multiple new hires. You can't have a fully operational staff if you don't build up support systems. Keep a balance but investing the proper time into employees will make a win-win for all. Lastly don't low ball employees. Recognize advanced degrees and offer people with the right skill sets competitive packages.
