Can literally do whatever you want you want
Tons of free time
Free supplements from vendors.
Health care is decent/ 401k sucks
I made my store into a very enjoyable work place, along with my co workers love me as their boss.
RSD/DSD never have anything negative to say(probably because I know more about supplements than both of them combined)
I’m at a higher volume store over 500k a year. I’ve constantly beat COMP year after year, along with a positive transaction growth upwards of 15-30% YTD due to myself and my employees that I have working for me. I’ve proven success time and time again.
I’ve done everything that I could for GNC. There’s nothing else to give. They cut our discount, then cut our 4% commission which could potentially equate to a $3,000 pay cut for me.
There’s no loyalty for GNC and their associates and managers. They legit just do not care about us. There’s constantly change, some of which are decent IE booster program, paper tags (i guess) that’s about it.
I have 100’s of people on the auto deliver and save program. A lot of the items I would make my 4% commission on & now GNC cut that!
I ask how am I going to make that money back? RSD/DSD tell me to sell boosters! Guess what? I’m 1-3rd place every single month for highest booster transactions. I can’t sell anymore!
Advice to Management
Your company is in shambles. It’s sad. Great employees are leaving you guys one by one, because you simply do not know how to retain employees. I will be one of them in the near future.
Maybe you guys should focus on actually training your RSD’s / DSD’s In supplemeng knowledge. Both of mine know nothing about them. My rsd can barely even tell you any facts about a preworkout. They just know sales tactics and how to number crunch . It’s actually quite embarrassing listening to my RSD trying to talk on conference calls about new products.
You hire people that want to great, but don’t compensate to the ones that do what’s asked. We need a bonus incentive for stores that actually hit COMP.
