    I worked at GNC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Commission based - you can somewhat control your paycheck
    Good if you work well alone (meaning no other employees but obviously a lot of customers)

    Cons

    Commission based - not guaranteed...and they don't want you to promote the items you make commission on (not their brand).
    The company says they are only concerned with customer service, but really they want you to be a pushy sales person and only sell their brand. If you don't sell certain amounts of their brand you get called out and most likely fired if it is a regular thing...so why they sell other brands in the first place, I'm not sure (and no, this was never an issue for me, just an annoying observation).
    It seems like everyone is looking for a reason to fire people here.

    Advice to Management

    Need more hours for store employees if you expect the store to be 200% on a daily basis (tasks, constant conference calls, shipment, customer service, training, etc).
