    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vitamin World (Port Richey, FL).

    Interview

    The interview process was more of a do you know what you are doing, and here is an introduction to the store kind of thing. I was asked more than a few questions about my work history, though I had the distinct feeling that my references were checked. Once my background check cleared I went to one of their training stores to learn the register and sales pitch, then the store was mine. Not much to it with the right experience. The interview is more of an informal let's see what you know than a "how can you handle this situation".

    Interview Questions

    • Will we see anything in your background check?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Vitamin World (Leesburg, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews with different District Managers. Both asked the same general questions: why do you want to work for our company, tell me about a difficult customer, what motivates you, etc.

    One thing they both loved discussing was how Vitamin world is better than the competition because they are a sales organization. In that I mean they are boastful in how they engage their customers. They actively try to sell to all demographics unlike GNC who sit behind the counter and market to meat head body builders.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Vitamin World (Houston, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    First interviewed by the District Manager. Then I was interviewed by the store manager. I was then brought back to do paperwork. all in all it took almost a month to get started on the background check. This company is located in NY and in my experience should just stay there. I really felt like the whole ordeal was smoke and mirrors and I never received clear and concise answers to my questions. Every time I asked about a clear salary expectation I was shuffled off onto another form to sign or something just mysteriously just popped up that would take the individual away.

    Interview Questions

    • There really wasn't a difficult question asked of me it was all cookie cutter interviewing tactics that anyone that has ever owned a business or held any sort of position already knows all the answers to. The thing that everyone should note that if you are a warm body that has some sort of snap and looks you will get a job unless you just blow the interview process completely. The questions are a joke and the interview process is more geared towards a young inexperienced person then a true professional. The entire hiring process took almost a month to get to the point to run my background   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were very vague about what I could make as a combination between the base and commission. I asked the District Manager if I could make between 40k and 50k and he said yes, I never did, I didn't make more then 30k

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vitamin World in January 2010.

    Interview

    My interview was probably a bit different from most. I just happened to be at the mall on a day that the district manager was visiting the store. I forgot where I parked and began chatting casually with him about the economy and the difficulty of finding a job regardless of your profession. I told him that I was a nurse and he immediately told me he was interested in talking to me. We sat at Cinnabon and talked for over an hour and I didn't even realize this was really an interview. By the time we finished talking he offered me the store manager job.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any particularly difficult questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The company has set pay rates for store managers with set commission rates. The place you really make your money is by achieving bonuses by making sure that your store is at or over monthly plan. Those bonuses can REALLY add up quickly.
