No opinion of CEO

Pros

All employees receive a 25% discount, and there is one time of year where the employee discount is 35%. Overall a relaxing place to work where you can learn a lot from your customers and just being surrounded by vitamins and supplements all day.

Cons

As a sales associate there was no commission which gave little incentive to sell one product over another. Management is on salary and sometimes they have to work a lot of over time (20+ hrs) which they aren't compensated for.

Advice to Management

Implement a commission to make selling exciting. Management has a tendency to cut managers who have been with the company for a long time when they don't want to pay them a high salary.
