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

    Pros

    The weekly pay, the employees, the environment, the hours are amazing. Before I started I read the horror stories of some people and second guessed even working there but I'm telling you everyone is different. I had a totally different experience from most of the people on here. You have to give it a try for yourself. Not every job is a success story but half the stuff written on here are pure lies. There's no 3 limit item to push on customers. You just recommend and leave it at that !

    Cons

    The taxes that they take out of your check. No overtime. Also the Weekly changes to the schedule

    Pros

    Very rewarding job with alot of room to grow in the company.

    Cons

    The worst thing would probably be rude customers, but honestly that's not a big at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing for this company.
