    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You get alot of time on your hands and you get 30% off products so you get to try alot of the products for cheap.

    Cons

    Minumum wage boring job and sales quotas you have to meet to not get commission on. You have to sell certain GNC products (P3's) and not get commission on it.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more room for growth and more hours to give to employees. Give more benefits tutition reimbursement or healthcare plans for all employees not just full time employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Decent Pay When Commission Is Good. Work Independently, Nutrition Is Economy Proof and The Company Is Still Rapidly Growing

    Cons

    Taking Away Alot Of Commission, Forced Sales Of Products That Dont Have Commissions (About 40-60% Should Be P3 Sales Which Make Nobody But GNC Money) Since Company Is Expanding Its Also Changing...Way Too Many Measurables Now & If Your Not A Young Buff Sports Guy They Don't Want You Anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Kill The P3 Program
