    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GNC (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was actually a very easy process. I was expecting that I would have to learn a lot about the products they have and be ready to explain my background in fitness but I was rather wrong. All I did was show up looking decent. It was apparent that they needed someone quick to fill a part time role and I was the guy for the job. It really is a relaxed company.

    GNC Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GNC (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Two interviews, initial with store manager, next one with RSD and possible other higher up. It was pretty easy. I felt like I went in over prepared and was confident in getting the job. explain to them your love of supplements and your passion for the industry. Being an athlete is a plus. Also, explaining how you have used stuff from the store and how it has benefited you is a plus. Showing that you are personable, friendly, and confident is a must.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GNC (Anchorage, AK) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A senior store manager interviewed me. The interviewer mocked my work history, insulted my lifestyle choices, undermined my experience through the entire interview. I've never been so offended by an interviewer before, the process was completely unprofessional. I was asked questions and interrupted during my response various times. I had heard good things about GNC as a company but if that is how they treat potential hires that I must have heard wrong. I will not be recommending this company to anyone.

    GNC Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GNC (San Diego, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very much designed on customer service and on sales experience. You have to know how to listen to your clients and how to sell things to people and get them to sign up for a membership. I found the guy to be very friendly, and was definitely not like I was in sort of any pressure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GNC (Fort Myers, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Backroom closet with barely enough room for 2 people. Very informal. Quite condescending in nature. Told that corporate can't pay Sales Associates more than minimum wage... Very disappointed and it appeared that the manager had favoritism because the several times I've been in the location prior I noticed the male and female having unusually close interactions.

    Interview then hired not much more. It was a very basic process that did not take very long at all. I would recommend just knowing the basic interview questions when going in. But that is it and the job was terrible.
