    you can't run a great business with very unhappy employees. change your focus to the original reason people take vitamins and the profit will be there.

    Pros

    The pay was decent for my experience at the time, 35K plus monthly bonus depending on your stores performance. You don't need a college degree or previous store management experience, but I was previously an assistant manager for 2-3 years. You're selling vitamins and supplements which do legitimately help some people. Benefits were average and included medical, dental, vision, and 401K.

    Cons

    The work/life ratio is horrible in any retail management position. Constantly having to cover for your store or others working well over your 40 hours a week. "Iron man" shifts are normal. Depending on location, management is incompetent. If you have a solid staff around you, it's not that bad but one bad apple usually spoils the bunch as in my case.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to hire people based and their quality and not rush just to get a position filled. They definitely need to watch over their district managers closely. The DM's have too much power and upper management seems to put too much trust in them.
