    I have been working at The Vitamin Shoppe full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Great customers, great store team, some flexibility in scheduling

    Cons

    constant change in executive leadership which causes constant operational changes that don't always make sense. low payroll, low pay for amount of work

    Advice to Management

    stop the identity crisis that we have been in for the past 5+ years. involve tenured store managers when making decisions that impact us at the store level. Send executives to work a day in the life of a SM for a month or two in order to streamline processes.

    Pros

    Passion fuels success in this business. I found that early on, people’s health is such a personal topic. You see people come in who have ambitious goals in mind for themselves. Also people who were just given bad news and are looking for a healthy alternative to what doctors are shoving in their faces.
