    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vitamin Shoppe (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day. I went in for a interview with the manager and all went well. He asked me questions about my previous jobs and experience. He then told me he would get with his DM and she would call me for a phone interview. That interview was somewhat nerve racking. She asked me scenario type questions like name a time when...... The store manager called me the next day and offered me the job and I accepted. Then I had to fill out emails for background check and take a drug urine test. That took over week to hear anything back, when I was told it should only take about 48hrs. So from first day of the interview to finally hearing back that the background and drug test went well, it was two weeks. I withdrew my accepted offer being that another job contacted me and I got in that job the next day. This whole process took way too long.

    Health Enthusiast Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vitamin Shoppe in March 2017.

    Interview

    The process took exactly two weeks, from the day I applied to the day I got offered the position. It was a three interview process. Had an in-store interview with an assistant manager and the manager, which went pretty well and lasted roughly 45 minutes. I got a call from a different store manager a few days later asking to do a follow-up interview, which we decided to do right then and there on the phone. It only lasted about 10-15 minutes but went well. Then I got a call the next day from the district manager asking to do a final interview, which only took about 20 minutes. The questions were pretty mixed, with some situational, some behavioral, asking about past employment, past experience, and a few questions on product/supplement knowledge. All in all, be upbeat, positive, energetic and personable throughout the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • There aren't any unexpected questions if you've been through the standard interview process before. It would be helpful, though, to differentiate why you want a position specifically at Vitamin Shoppe and not another/similar supplement company.   Answer Question
