I worked at Vitamin World full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pay was decent for the job difficulty and skill level required. Benefits were pretty good also. Helping people was enjoyable.

Cons

Upper management will let bad store managers run rampant if they produce good numbers. Too many superfluous tasks.

Advice to Management

Stop creating the perception in employees that no statement that could fit in this space could ever possibly have an impact on your behavior.

    Pros

    You get commission on everything that you sell. You'll get monthly bonuses if you make your goals. The people in senior management are kind. This is a decent job for someone who knows how to sell.

    Cons

    They sometimes set unrealistic goals. There is a high turnover rate due to the demands of the job.

    I worked at Vitamin World full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    commission, discount, training, easy inventory

    Cons

    I never got a pay increase in 5 yrs of management, my sales beat plan and one year my store was #1 in the company another #6 out of 450 stores 0n top of that they cut everyones pay this year by lowering the commission and raising the goals to make it impossible to make bonus. the commission change alone brought my pay down $100 a week when i asked for a little more I was fired in my state that is legal for them to do. After 6 yrs you would think a company would care but upper management made it clear how easy I could be replaced

    Advice to Management

    when you have a good employee show them they matter. I loved my job and the company but when I tried to open up to management about not getting a raise in 5 years I got fired to protect the companies assets. My pay was cut over $100 dollars a week because of a commission cut the same year our company has the highest sales ever. When a company does good they should pass it along to the people who helped them get there not take away from them
