    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.

    I worked at Vitacost full-time

    Pros

    They offer health insurance and a safe place to work.

    Cons

    Vitacost used to be a fantastic company, but sadly it declined over the years. It starts at the top with a executive management team that plays favorites and truthfully hardly works, stealing time is still stealing. The example being set is one that shows lack of care and concern, and HUGE ego's. The once caring family feeling is long gone. Benefits were reduced so that the execs can make huge salaries and bonuses. While the rest of the employees struggle to make ends meet.
    Kroger has failed to address these issues and as a result the place is a free for all.

    Advice to Management

    You need a complete restructuring of upper management. Address those whose ego's barely fit in the door. Human Resources is a joke. They are here for the company and NOT the employees.
