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

    Pros

    they offer good benifits including 401k w/match about 4 differtent schedules plenty of o/t PTO

    Cons

    no real down side for me as long as you follow the rules and procedures and good attitude your fine.

    Advice to Management

    be sincere to employees when you say you want to help then take time to listen and work with them since they give thier time to be there just like the managers do respect the associates so the associates can respect the managers and supervisors...no one is superior everyone is expendable, regardless of your title.

    I have been working at Vitacost full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people I work or some of the best and we give our all to this company. Overtime checks are the best, you just have to work six eleven hour days to make it!

    Cons

    There is no appreciation shown to the employees, the harder you work the more you work. There's no communication between management and employees. Raises are slow and small.

    Advice to Management

    Team is the company as a whole not just the CEO, Managers, HR and the other office personnel. The warehouse workers should be treated better. Our jobs aren't easy either. We just feel left out of the loop!

    I have been working at Vitacost full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can choose to work extra days if you need extra money. You work the same four days every week unless you have an overtime day. The work in the warehouse is fairly simple.

    Cons

    You must be prepared to move around constantly for 10-11 hours a day. The first few weeks you will be sore if you are not use to moving around that much.

    Advice to Management

    The management does a good job. The only thing that needs improvement is the equipment in the Static section, the carts mostly and some of the scanners. Some of the carts wheels have gotten stuck a few times and about slammed me into the wall.

    Pros

    You get your overtime and plenty of it when business is good. You want too explain that something is not working properly and they just rig it up too get by, then say you broke it.

    Cons

    Not giving raises every year, its like every 2 years. And they play favorites under their wings for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention too your hard workers.
