    I have been working at GNC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you dig any biology of just supplements it can be a very cool job and if you have a chill boss it can be relaxing as well

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit to relaxing there is always something to do but the days can drag on and on

    Advice to Management

    As a manager myself I would advise to be good to your associates they try their best usually and they will be good to you if you are good to them

    I worked at GNC part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good for a college student or someone who needs down time. I worked at a busier store and averaged about 30 customers a day. Sometimes I would have 3 hours to get my college work done.

    Cons

    Corporate is annoying. Everything has to be in a certain place - they randomly check in. The franchise owner usually doesn't care what happens in store as long as corporate doesn't find out. Pay is not that good either. This job is only good for a part timer who isnt looking for a career here - just some extra cash in the interim,
