    Will not grow within (advance) they hire outsiders instead of current employees who has gained the experience and passion to take over the available position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your most valuable long term employees and appreciate them by giving them opportunities to advance within the organization

    Pros

    You will hopefully get a paycheck!!!

    Cons

    It is a thrown under the bus culture. No one takes responsibility or ownership. No mentoring so most likely you will sink. Very very very hostile work environment. Appearance and size do matter. Can't be over 30. No money to pay suppliers, vendors. No professional development. You lose your opinion and voice. Your every movement is watched and there are spies everywhere. Must be a Christian to work there since Joel and Victoria's daily scriptures are sent to you everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are your greatest asset!!!! Show that you care and not by giving employees expiring protein RTD's (ready to drink). Take the time to listen and mentor and define your expectations. Have yearly reviews. Communicate communicate communicate!!!!!! Practice what your scriptures preach and don't just talk the walk but WALK IT!!! You are running a business for profit!!! Don't give your business away!!!

    Pros

    Products that work... that's it.

    Cons

    Lack of tools to succeed, poor management, company has no money. High turnover rate. Upper management is made up of individuals that were high school friends with no sales background. This company has no direction and fails to set any form of sales goals. The CEO of the company will use intimidation by threatening your job as a form of motivation. The bank controls the companies money and requires purchase orders to be shown prior to extending loans. You'll be required to sell product that is not available so the company can show demand to the bank. VPX is in debt to countless companies in the industry and refuses to reimburse them. VPX will try and find ways to not reimburse you for your company expenses, car allowance, and commissions. The CEO has no morals, values, or Integrity. When the company is finished using you, they won't provide you with the respect or courtesy to let you know that you're employment has been terminated. They will make up false reasons for termination and completely blind side you. You will receive a letter of separation in the mail and never be given the opportunity to speak to your superior. By far the most unorganized organization I have ever heard of. Hardest company in America to work for! I'd be surprised if this company was still in business, 6 months from today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't provide advice to a management team that I would relate to clowns at the local circus act. Maybe, find a new job before the company files bankruptcy.

    I worked at Vital Pharmaceuticals (VPX) full-time

    Pros

    Flexible, nice area to work in. As someone else stated, rank and file employees are pretty nice and down to earth. Good temp job until you get something better.

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to run a business. Focus on the little things instead of the big picture. Egos and arrogance run the place, not brains or business sense. Does not provide tools or direction to work with. What is broken, stays broken and "no budget" to fix. No career progression or professional growth incentives. Attempt to motivate through fear of losing employment instead of positive reenforcement or incentives. Very low moral throughout the business, very negative environment throughout.

    Pros

    very flexible hours,good pay until november

    Cons

    not too many tools to work with, they managers don't help you at all , you're in your own to make the business grow, no coaching , no equipment,no advertising of the product.. all they ask is for more money without investing some to promote the product. every month they want the same amount of money.and all the routes have to make the same amount of money.in what world they're living on.. every month the business is different and all the areas sell different...and by working a saturday it's not going to make the number's go up if you don't have enough accounts to do xtra stops.. you are digging yourself into a hole that you're not going to be able to cover the next month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest some money , advertise the product

    I worked at Vital Pharmaceuticals (VPX) as an intern

    Pros

    Great restaurants for lunch in the area. Select few individuals that were awesome to work with.

    Cons

    Micro-Managing, megalomaniac CEO and a clueless Operations Manager who knows it all and is always in an abrasive mood. They are their own worst enemy. Focus is on areas of business that is of no benefit to the company. Blame is placed on everyone except upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being yes-men.

    Pros

    The products do what they say they will do, University Studied and Tested! Flavors are unique and the brand could go far if run by sales people.

    Cons

    Constant threats involving your paycheck and job! CEO is a mad scientist that thinks he knows sales and VP of Sales is a former operations manager with no sales experience...two non sales people do not equal the correct sales process. No sales goals, no territory maps, no game plan, no communications no support!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and remove the handcuffs!!!
