    I have been working at GNC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employeee of 30 % off discounts, manager is cool, atmosphere is relaxing, not very hard, there is commission so if you get paid 9$ an hour but are good at pushing some products you can walk away with a nice $500 in commission by the end of the week

    Cons

    some responsibilities suck like rearanging the walls every month, changing tags, stocking, and shipment is by far the worst, you will get a day with like 90 boxes of delivery and expect to have it all out by the end of the shift.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up, raise the pay though

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

    Pros

    A lot of downtime for college kids who need to study/do homework. Lots of time to think and ponder and contemplate your own existence.

    Cons

    ...lots of time to contemplate a lot of things. No music. If nobody comes in and it's a slow day you could actually go insane and begin having conversations with the products on the shelves.

    Advice to Management

    Be more like Michael Scott. A little more pizazz. A little more glitter in the work sauce. Other than that, amazing management. Very, VERY professional and effective.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. An easy job. A lot of days off if you are a 12 hour employee. Every other weekend off.

    Cons

    The only downside for me was the long hours.

    Pros

    Competition within store and with regional stores creates motivated work environment with knowledgeable employees eager to assist customers throughout entire experience.

    Cons

    Cons at the time I worked there was too much emphasis on body image since it was all about fitness and health. Being the only female, I sometimes felt targeted.
