    I worked at Vitacost (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can wear whatever you want except tank tops and sandals.

    Cons

    You are hired to work mon-Fri at 40 hours... however you are REQUIRED to work 10-12 hours a day AND THEN will tell you on Friday that you must work Saturday and Sunday too... I worked 19 days straight had a one day break and did it over and over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that you can HIRE more people at a LOWER cost. If you are paying overtime (time AND a half) then you are paying extra for the same work a second sift could be doing.

    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.
