    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good discounts on products if your into fitness yourself, it can also be rewarding to really help a customer get products that help them achive better results.

    Cons

    Poor culture among upper managment, a constant game of politics and favorites. Managment beyond the store level is less interested in the companies vision and mission and more interested in promoting themselves as individuals.

    Advice to Management

    RSD and DDSM positions need to spend far more time in-store to better understand the needs and wants of both employees and customers.

    "GNC doesn't care about what the customer wants, only about meeting sale quotas for arbitrary products."

    I worked at GNC part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a good part time job to have while you're in school, because the hours can be flexible (depends on the store). if it's a store located in a busy area, you can make good commission. You get a good employee discount.

    Cons

    They force you push the GNC products down people's throats and you have to meet unrealistic quotas daily, before being able to sell the products that will make you commission. They get rid of people for absolutely no reason and out of nowhere. You have random people from corporate coming in for the entire day, and usually they're not very pleasant people to be around. They don't pay very much.

    Advice to Management

    You should consider having your employees actually help the customer find what they need, instead of forcing them to sell products to the customers that they don't need, just to meet your daily quotas. If you expect your employees to do so much, you should pay them more.
