    Pros

    Solid company, great product offerings for the customers, solid benefits package & pay structure.

    Cons

    A disconnect between the upper management, & the front line. I don't think that they have a solid idea, of what goes on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Tune in more to the front line, & the day to day operations.

    Pros

    Vitamin Shoppe offers good health insurance. This company provides a great pathway to learning about homeopathic alternatives for health and wellness.

    Cons

    Does not provide an environment to balance work and personal life. I work most shifts that are 11-8pm which basically takes up the whole day. The company is also very wasteful. When markdown items are withdrawn from shelve, the company has a strict policy of destroying these items when they could be donated to local charities.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a system to reduce waste, and plan schedule rotations more equally.

    Pros

    Pay every week
    Good employee discounts
    Can work a lot of hours

    Cons

    Very boring
    No commission on sales
    Only 3 employees at the store I worked at- so no flexibility with schedules

    Give employees commission on sales

    I worked at Vitamin Shoppe part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Commission if monthly goals are met
    Learning about the supplement industry

    Cons

    Having to come in at 6am on Saturdays to do shipment meanwhile throughout the whole day their might be 3 people at the store max
    Off-time you're not able to do any non customer related work (new product placement/shipment)

    Advice to Management

    Upper management- walk into a vitamin shoppe it seems like you give out instructions without actually seeing how things work in the store (very pointless)

    Pros

    This ia a fairly stress free environment. There is much satisfaction in helping others achieve their health goals. The new senior management is very supportive.

    Cons

    As with all retail, payroll cuts have been a sore subject recently. Getting cut 40+ hrs each week is a tough hit. There was NO heads up. Makes it difficult to stay on top of all the programs that are expected, yet to donit with less resources.
