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

Pros

30% employee discount, gain insight to the world of nutritional supplementation, flexible schedule, great job for people who like small talk with strangers, gain entry level sales knowledge, great commissions on certain product sales, management is hands off if you deliver numbers, great relationship with store manager

Cons

Expect unrealistic numbers on products customers don't want, base pay minimum for part time, long periods of being alone and busy work, commission extremely low, if existent, on products that are expected to be sold, had the feeling upper management was willing to throw part time employees under the bus, would never work there full time

Advice to Management

Focus on positive interactions with customers for return shoppers rather than one VP sale out the door, have RSDs spend more hours with sales reps selling instead of just discussing numbers, pay the employees for the products you ask them to sell, selling $26 dollar bags of impotent chews is immoral

    Pros

    Chance to make decent money if you're good at selling.

    Cons

    Sales are more important than helping people. Customers see this and it makes them hate you.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on what the customer needs.
