    Pros

    Good commission if you can sell

    Cons

    Part time but was forced to work 39 hours a week, hard to take off, missed a lot of family events

    Advice to Management

    Carry more than 3 people at a store so you can allow employees to take off

    Pros

    Plenty of support from management in my region. Was great to learn the ins and out of the business from good managers. You get quick feed back from customers when you help them. Decent discounts.

    Cons

    Depending on the store commissions can be minimal. It really depended on the number of people walking through the door. You had to decide between making money and helping the customer.

    Pros

    Being able to constantly expand my knowledge on different products

    Cons

    Management was sub par at best, being berated for not meeting insane sales goals during slow times

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the proper training and don't expect the world. It's easy to be a motivator, but it can cross over into employees resenting you very quickly.

    Pros

    Helping customers with their health concerns and developing supplement programs was very gratifying.

    Cons

    No knocks. Any job is what you make of it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep regional product demands in focus. What might sell in Pittsburg might not necessarily be the hot need in Tampa.

    Pros

    They have a great outlook on health and fitness and getting people to try to live a better in healthy life.

    Cons

    Theyre sales goals are kind of rediculous and some items are useless for the customer since there are better alternatives in the stores

    Advice to Management

    They need to have nicer managers that have more time flexibility rather than over working part time to nearly 40 hours a week.

    Pros

    You have the chance at getting $1,000+ checks. You have a bunch of free time. You only have work to do at the beginning of the month.

    Cons

    The corporate DFO is an absolute a-hole. You may not be able to do anything in your free time at the store because apparently, "there's always something to do". Hounded to sell vitapaks and gold cards. Sometimes the hours are stressful. No set schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees as if they're dirt. Franchises get the butt end of the stick right now just because corporate stores have much better deals that no franchise will offer.

    Pros

    I was the manager of a locally owned location, so I would say the only pro was working with some great employees that I hired during my tenure as manager.

    Cons

    marketing, upper management, and sales have little idea what the future of supplement sales is bringing. More and more people are moving to online supplement purchasing and training, and it is increasingly difficult to sell products people know to be inferior.

    Advice to Management

    eliminate sales goals and profits will increase. Let customers purchase what they want instead of what GNC thinks they need.
