    Super Supplements is SUPER! Passion, Knowledge, Team Work, Solid Management

    Management (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsEvolving and ever growing local NW OWNED company with a strong focus on product education, customer service, team professional development, with competitive pay.Management is open to employees ideas and always listens to concerns.

    ConsStruggles with Buying Dept., WH and distribution have caused some hiccups with product availibility. There is a need to improve backend support computer systems and this is improving as the company grows and the right people are hired to get the job done. There are always growing pains with a company that is experiencing solid growth year after year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus improving employee benefits and support programs. Continue also to improve manager training to better equip them to do thier jobs and take care of thier team members and customers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsThe people are great! We really get recognized for what we contribute.

    ConsIt's growing really fast (this is good) but there are some hiccups along the way. A lot fo change is happening and systems being implemented that don't always work at first.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work-I know you're trying and things don't always go accordingly. I assume your positive intent.

    ConsBought out by vitamin shoppe, pay could be better, always changing policy

    Good company going through constant change

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are Good people to work with
    They offer Competitive pay
    They have Good benefits as well as
    Fair working conditions

    ConsRecently purchased by larger national vitamin company and quickly losing its identity and culture. Bonuses, morale and overall feel of the company has changed. New policies make the environment restrictive and overly corporate in a place that has seen success through trust and a personal approach to people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Assume Positive Intent

    Administrative (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsSuper Supplements was a fast growing and fun place to work. Most employees had an opportunity to make a difference and work was collaborative.

    ConsSuper Supplements has been sold to Vitamin Shoppe and the corporate take-over nightmare begins. Most office employees will be fired but the distribution center remains and takes over distribution for the 17 Vitamin Shoppe stores in the area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt was pretty unfair to continue to hire when you were working to sell the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
