    I have been working at Vitamin Shoppe part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of samples, decent discount, you meet cool reps.

    Cons

    Customers (at least in my area) Are painfully ignorant and rude. Don't expect customers to know anything.. they usually don't. Hours are TERRIBLE at my store. I have been with this company for 2 years and they are giving the new hires more hours than me despite my knowledge of supplements and the store. Hours are not given out fairly, you can be the best worker there and you will be given the least amount of hours. You will never get full-time hours as a Health Enthusiast, not even 29 paid hours (which falls below full-time). I have so many complaints about this company I could go on forever about my Managers and Corporate. Maybe you will get lucky and get a well managed store and a good Store Manager who is fair. It is also hard to move up in this company. Someone has to quit first...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees equally. Practice what you preach. Set a good example. Hold yourself up to the standards you hold us. Do your job right. Don't make your employees pick up your slack. Prioritize better.
