    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Vitamin Shoppe (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was a total of 3 steps. A phone interview, in person interview, and a phone call with the district manager. The in person interview was conducted by the store manager and assistant managers. The questions asked for the most part weren't difficult. Also asked for our input on what we would do in a scenario where other associates weren't following through with their tasks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Vitamin Shoppe (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I interviewed first at a store that had no available position (They did not inform me of that fact prior to the interview). I did talk and interview with two other managers to find me a store that had an open position, so it was a longer interview process than probably necessary.

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Vitamin Shoppe.

    Interview

    received a call asking to get come into the store. Was pretty relaxed, they want somebody customer service oriented with knowledge about their products. The whole interview didn't last more than 15 minutes I think because I didn't do well
