    I worked at Vitamin Shoppe (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot about vitamins and supplements. The people I worked with were great.

    Cons

    The pay could be higher given that there's a lot of responsibilities for store associates.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest more community involvement and higher pay for store associates.

    I worked at Vitamin Shoppe full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Discount, knowledge through training, benefits.

    Cons

    Unstable management, poor company growth plan, horrible social media maintenance, zero payroll to manage a store.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees & actually adhere to company policies as to avoid future issues. Unrealistic expectations given the small amount of payroll you expect us to work off of.

    I worked at Vitamin Shoppe part-time

    Pros

    The Vitamin Shoppe offers a wide array of products and services at reasonable prices. Employees receive an excellent discount on top of that, along with reasonable room for growth. There's a lot to learn while working here, but it all pays off in the long run.

    Cons

    Probably just an issue with the area I worked in but, management, along with some staff, was rather untrustworthy. It made the workplace uncomfortable, and challenging to be in. Work/Life balance isn't always easy, with stores being so small staffed. If someone quits/gets fired, it's challenging finding time for yourself outside of work with the time it takes to find someone new. Pay is also minimal, especially with what is required and expected of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Build a better system of trust with staff members. The turnover rate in this company is already high, and staff doesn't need another reason to want to leave.

    I worked at Vitamin Shoppe part-time

    Pros

    Discount on products, generic and name brands

    Cons

    Staff was not inclusive because I was new

    Advice to Management

    When a new person comes in, make sure that you include them in your group. Don't make it cliquey. It makes for an awful work environment.

    Pros

    Awesome discount. Customer base ages range so much from young to old always someone different looking for something different to use. Constantly learning

    Cons

    Stocking system is terrible. From receiving in shipment to put stock up and pulling stock down. It's a never ending time consuming cycle
