    Incredible Place to Work

    Apr 30, 2022 - Assistant Store Manager in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    Felt truly supported by field leadership and corporate to grow as a person and professionally. When there’s a problem it doesn’t get pushed to the side, field leadership gets involved and assists to the best of their ability to help you. Highly recommend working at VS! Check out their Undercover Boss episode, a lot of the issues we faced at the store level were touched upon in the episode and nearly every hurdle was fixed by the time I left. They truly do want you to succeed and honestly care about your well being. This is a company that I can honestly say if my career path brought me back to the company I would be happy to be part of their family again.

    Cons

    Most corporate positions are required to be in office at NJ HQ limiting in house growth opportunities.

    If you like the supplement industry, you can try a lot of new products.

    Payroll hours, micro management, salaried position gets abused if youre short staffed, and they claim to care about their employees, but clearly dont.

    This job itself was never hard, but terrible work/life balance and high anxiety levels are the norm

    Pros

    - Met some truly wonderful people - Good education - Easy to move up the chain of management (if you are ok with a slim pay increase) - Simple day to day tasks - If you thrive in high stress, low stakes situations this could be a great place for you

    Cons

    - EXTERNAL HIRES ARE PAID MORE THAN INTERNAL PROMOTIONS - Unpredictable schedule - District mgmt uses anxiety as motivation tactic - High expectations with minimal to no reason or resources - Unhealthy work/life balance is expected, their solution is encouraging 1 full weekend off a month (but you better be able to answer your phone and willing to cover a shift at another store if need be)
