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

    Pros

    Good Products. I enjoy staying healthy/working out, so being in the store was fun for me. Commission on some items is nice too, can make extra money by selling certain things.

    Cons

    Wage (low), lots and lots of busy work. Setting up and taking down displays, lots of cleaning and stocking.


  2. "Decent enough part time job but depends on your location"

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

    Pros

    Can learn a lot about supplements including natural herbs and amino acids, pay can be good if you're in a good location, discount.

    Cons

    Can be incredibly boring especially if it's not gold card week, constantly forced to push gold cards and GNC products including some really useless stuff, commission is only given on certain items and some of the best sellers gave none, constantly reprimanded for not selling people stuff they didn't want or didn't need, our manager gave herself all the best shifts including pulling a double on the first day of gold card week, if you're in a bad location your traffic can be non-existant which means your sales and commissions are too.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the staff more through better commissions and offer better sales since online supplement market is often cheaper and more convenient.
