Current Employee - Sales Associate in Riverside, CA
Current Employee - Sales Associate in Riverside, CA

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

Pros

Employee discount; customer service if you are actually interested in health and helping people.

Cons

Meeting sales goals. The goals are too high and associates are pressured to show products that are specifically GNC instead of products the customer actually needs.

Advice to Management

Reduce the sales goals. The employees work hard and after doing their best we fall short of a very high goal that us near unachievable. And provide work shirts. We shouldn't have to supply our own at a minimum wage job.
