No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The main reasons to work here would be...
increasing social skills
decent pay
flexible hours
enjoyment of the supplement industry
networking with potential sponsors

Cons

Numbers numbers numbers.
When you meet your sales goals, they will just increase your requirement, as they know you can do XXX, so they make you push to XXXX, and so on.

Advice to Management

Focus more on giving the customer what they want, and not only what GNC makes the most money off of.
