    Pros

    Great support from the owners. They are always available via phone/text to help with any situation or questions. Owners are helpful in building a strong, ethical and hard working P/T team

    Not a whole lot of room for growth. But I learned a lot and the owners are always encouraging further education.

    I have been working at GNC part-time

    Pros

    Solid 30% discount. Get to work around supplements.

    Cons

    Poor payment scale with ever changing commissions (or PMs) and there is always someone breathing down your neck about sales. During my tenure at GNC we changed the GOLD Card and what the discounts are three separate times.

    Advice to Management

    Be better.

    Pros

    Enjoyed atmosphere and the ability to drive performance results
