    GNC had a flexible schedule, great freebies for employees, and the average work day was very low stress. Employees are very nice.

    Cons

    high pressure for sales and they adjust the standards for different areas with different economical structure. there wasnt alot of room for moving up into management, which was a bummer.

    Pros

    It's slow 3 weeks out of the month so you can read, watch movies on your phone or veg out.

    Cons

    The company is psycho about sales goals. The company spends most of its time training the customer to only shop one week out of the month. Do the math, three weeks of selling a bottle of water over a 5 hour shift doesn't allow you to meet the absolutely crazy goals to keep your job. They keep revising the % needed to meet standard and forcing you to stop actually trying to help customers and their concerns and more of a used car salesmen situation. It becomes a situation where if someone isn't buying an item that doesn't help your goals you don't want to help them. Your job is on the line over multi vitamins and chewy C screw someone who actually needs help.

    Advice to Management

    If you're margins are so small that you can't actually be a health store that helps customers with their actual problems instead of lording over employees to push items that aren't needed at the end of a gun then fix your business model.
