    Interview

    G eezz N o C ognizant ! The most awkward interview that I had so far in life. Very uninformed staff not sure what they are doing. Lack of professionalism. They don't really know what they are looking for. It was very odd and unprofessional. Questions were really irrelevant and irritating. They sent me thank you letter 10 mins after our phone interview - very rude.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amherst, NH

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at GNC (Amherst, NH) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I called the manager at the Amherst GNC and asked if they were hiring, She said they were and I was granted a pre-interview. The manager was so full of energy and positive vibes. They then called me back and offered me a telephone interview with another manager. It was a short interview with basic questions. Afterwards, I was told that he would be calling back the manager at the Amherst GNC and I would be getting a call from her. A few days later, we worked out my hire date.

    Research and Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GNC (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    -30 minute phone interview with HR
    -request for additional letter to the hiring manager
    -30 minute phone interview with hiring manager
    -homework assignment
    -3 hour in person interview at GNC headquarters
    -additional homework assignment

    After a lot of work and obvious interest, I was offered a different position than the one I applied for. I was open to this new role, spoke with the hiring manager again, and then took then night to consider. I counter offered for a slightly higher salary. They responded that they could not meet my request and were no longer interested in me. This was quite an abrupt decision and surprising as negotiating a contract is quite a common thing to do. I have never been met with this type of response. After all of this, I called both HR and the hiring manager to make it known I was open to discussion and finding a solution that would work for both parties - no feedback. This was quite a disappointing interview process and quite rude on the part of both the hiring manager and HR. We are all human after all and constructive feedback would have been nice or at least an answer.
