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.

    Pros

    one plus to working for Vitamin World is employee discounts on supplements.

    Cons

    Pay is not good. and the RM's and DM's dont look out for the managers.

    Advice to Management

    If Vitamin World is about costumer service. then make it about costumer service. not about pushing the sale just to sale more.

    Pros

    You have a base plus commission salary, so it's better than working for minimum wage. There is opportunity to move up in the company, and you have to be educated to work there in order to inform customers on supplements that will benefit their health, so you learn a lot.

    Cons

    The hours are not the best as with any job in retail and there is a limit as to how much you are allowed to use your discount for each month.

    Advice to Management

    If associates are spending good money in the store, don't complain.
