Vitamin Shoppe – Why Work For Us?


What matters...every body matters™ is not just our tagline; it's our mantra. it communicates our focus on helping to make the world healthier, one life at a time.

700+ Stores

The Vitamin Shoppe® has over 700 stores throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. However, success for us is not measured by how many stores we open. Success for us means providing a fulfilling customer experience to each person who shops in our store.

Our goal is to make a healthy difference in people's lives every day and travel with each customer on their wellness journey. It matters to us that our customers know we are a reliable resource for their favorite products and also a place where highly trained health enthusiasts are always excited to advise, explain, and share healthy inspiration.

    I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady paced job where you get to help people and learn new things everyday. Fun and positive environment and amazing place to meet new people and help customers. Enjoy the fact that I can suggest my honest opinion on what a customer needs instead of being pressured to sell a specific product or brand. Although, our brand is amazing, there are just some cases where a different one might work better for a specific customer.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be slow paced, should be able to do shipment during store hours. Sometimes the day can drag when there hasn’t been customers in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be able to work on shipment and tasks during store hours if it is extremely slow.
