Other Employee Reviews for GNC

  1. "Easy job, low pay."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    -It is an easy job, regular day includes maintaining the store and sales; managing the sales team which is fairly simple because most of the time the team is made up of 2-5 people. Occasional plan-o-grams; mark downs; some paper work but it does not take long not is it complicated.
    -free product; vendor relations;
    -Talking to people about fitness and supplements was a pro a for me because I'm into it.

    Cons

    -Most of the time you work alone; it can get really boring.
    -Room for advancement is small; getting into a higher volume store only gives a few K pay increase. Higher paying positions are scarce, raises are low.
    -The sales structure turns a lot of customers off
    -Fairly low pay; even for managers not enough to live comfortably on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on all the demands; pay your managers more and stop opening up so many new locations.

    I have been working at GNC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free samples of supplements. Great opportunity to learn about products.

    Cons

    Forced sales. Job is threatened unless Key point indicators are made each month

    Advice to Management

    Stop the Key Point Indicators. Customers can not stand the employees because of the pushy sales. Done tell employees that a sale is a sale then threaten job loss if KPI's are not met.
