    I worked at GNC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    learn a lot about what it takes to run a store. Have different responsibilities everyday. Help people become more health conscious. Once you're in management, it's not too bad.

    Cons

    corporate expectations can be too unrealistic and demanding. Having to re-do half of the store's planograms every month instead of focusing on customers. not enough payroll. Part timers are taken advantage of the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to others. Take into consideration that everyone is different. So the previous supervisor may have been telling everyone something totally different than your expectations are on how you want things done.
