      Not a bad job to have while finding the career you want

      Aug 27, 2020 - Store Manager in Bettendorf, IA

      Pros

      - flexible (you make schedule) - commission & contests + wage - get training and knowledge in a truly unique field - helping people live healthier lifestyles (if you like people) - sales goals that must be met & maintained, good for the go-getter & driven individual

      Cons

      - sales goals maybe challenging if you are not comfortable working with people or lack decent people skills - product knowledge maybe initially overwhelming, especially if you have no prior experience in the nutrition & supplement industry - your associates are typically young people (18-24) who don’t stay too long. so constantly hiring & training new associates can be a chore. Finding associates that are actually decent and flexible is also a challenge. - going OT is heavily frowned upon, even if the reasons why you have to are justified.

      A lot of stress for not much benefit

      Pros

      You meet a lot of great people. If you're interested in fitness then there are a ton of opportunities for you.

      Cons

      There was a lot of unwarranted stress. I understand there are always numbers to meet and sales goals to achieve but they have a hard time understanding that there is not much you can do with such a limited amount of customers.

      Great job while in college

      Pros

      Discount, pms, flexible work hours

      Cons

      Unrealistic sales goals, too pushy on GNC brand and on the pro access (up until recently managers made commission on all GNC brand products, however I heard they took that away), high turnover (that’s an understatement, at the particular store I worked at it was just myself and the manager at one point (October ‘18, the previous month we had 5 total employees at the store). Company is headed into bankruptcy. If I’m not mistaken, GNC has long-term debt that matures in March (2019). During last summer (2018), there was a heavy push to get customers on the auto deliver and save 10% program. Every time the product was shipped to the customer, you would get the pm(if there was even a pm on the product) and the customer would save money. Their reasoning was about earning an easy pm each month (or whenever the product shipped to the customer), however this is their way of getting people locked into this program so that when the time comes for GNC to close more stores, the customer will still have their desired product shipped from the GNC warehouse. During the same time period, they even had conference calls every single day about the same thing and we were told to take notes all the time. It got annoying and repetitive. And, if you did not get an ADAS (auto deliver and save) by the 1pm update or before the 4pm conference call then you would have to be on the conference call at 4. They even compared the ADAS program to Amazon prime and said it would appeal better to customers.
