    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GNC (Jacksonville, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The initial interview process was simple, with two other managers. Easy questions, mostly about my history. On the 2nd interview, the regional manager came in, and was all about competitive sales. Which I've done. But when asked if I currently took any supplements, I said no. Told her that as a former chef, I am fairly aware of what my body needs and I don't need them in my current state of health. That was it, interview was over.

    New to the area and a recent college graduate, I was originally looking for a part time position to make student loan payments while looking for a foot in the door.

After meeting with her, the next day I was called in for a second interview where I was offered the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GNC (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    SSM talked more about the position than asking about me. Overall it was very easy, they are more concerned on your selling ability than anything. I only had experience as an Asst. Manager and easily got the job. They seemed desperate to fill positions as I was asked to recruit friends etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GNC in April 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the store management position, was interviewed by the regional director. Went very well, then I was called for a second interview, was told what I would be doing as a store manager, interviewer explained the benefits and daily procedures. I was told I was pretty much hired and that the regional director would call back to finalize the offer. I received a call a week later from another store manager and was told they needed part time help and that is what they were offering me. WHAT A JOKE!! I have 7 years of experience as a store manager in retail, yet they wanna offer me a part-time, 15 hours a week, $8 an hour pay!!!???? Seriously, what's wrong with this company?? I was told that everyone starts from "the bottom", yet that's not what I was told by the person who interviewed me, they got hired form the outside and was hired as a store manager. Their interviews are very misleading, they want people to believe they are applying for a management position, only to tell them that they would want them to "prove themselves" first. I don't need to prove to you that I am a manager, I have the extensive experience and references to back me up. They use this as a strategy to pay people less $. This place is all a joke, DONT WASTE YOUR TIME, YOU DESERVE BETTER!!!!

    Reasons for Declining

    With 7 years of Management retail experience, I deserve more than the $8 an hour they wanted to give me. I don't need to prove myself, I've been there done that!! I know their tactics, that's why their turnover rate is so high, all they can afford to hire are kids straight out of high school because anyone smarter than them will decline their offer!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at GNC (Columbus, OH) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Have to review your work as an assistant manager and how well you did. After that there is a formal interview with the Senior Store Manager. If that goes well then you have a phone interview with the Regional Sales Director. They don't really let you choose your store the first time. It was a pretty quick process for me.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself? Tell me a time when you had to deal with an upset customer? How did you handle it? How would you sell me a multivitamin? What are some of your strengths? What is something that you could improve in? Where do you see yourself a year from now? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? What is your dream job if you could do anything?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GNC (Springfield, MO) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Very informal. It is clear that they were looking for more of an outgoing individual with sales experience, opposed to a person with previous management experience. Prepare for a sales interview and you will do well. Previous sales experience and scenarios will help you win the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What qualities make up a successful salesman?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Yes, slightly. But don't expect to negotiate thousands of dollars, more like .50-$1
