Sales are lacking and they are desperately trying to stop the bleeding. Leadership lays it on thick that things are OK and that they have a plan that will right the ship. People keep leaving, though; either involuntarily or they've seen the writing on the wall. People who are still there are working 70+ hours a week. Management keeps stripping benefits away. In short, not a good time to join the company.

Lack of management in the WI warehouse, No advancement. They use employees to do more work vs. promoting them and giving them raises they deserve. Constantly making rash decisions, only to fall back on them because they don't work. Horribly overworked and underpaid.

Management doesn't seem to care what goes on in the warehouse as long as the job get done and nothing big happens. If there are claims of harassment they do investigate but out side of that not much is done. You can be off quota and they don't care, they are also very relaxed with being on time. As long as you are there before they show up it doesn't matter much.
if you need help with something its on you. No one will help anyone else unless forced to
Very Motivating place to work. They inspired me to make some health and lifestyle changes as well and everyone that works at BBCOM is truly inspiring
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – October 20, 2017
When arriving to work it was usually busy on phone and we had to focus to clear the call ques but after 5pm, a lot of the phone calls were all information/motivation and this was were a lot of us who are into lifting and a healthy lifestyle could shine because we were able to provide tips and ideas to our clients. There were days were I would be maxed out with 3 customer's on live chats and it was stressful because of the response time but we learned how to handle and manage these stressful situations. The team was very supportive and if anyone needed help they could ask me or I could ask them for assistance. The energy in that building was incredible and no other place I have worked for has been like this.
it was a job that endured harassment by managers and by coworkers
Package Handler (Former Employee) – Mechanicsburg, PA – October 16, 2017
It was a temp to hire job but also unhealthy environment to work in. Poor supervisors and mangers that play favorites with employees. The job itself was easy warehouse job coming from someone thats been doing warehouse jobs for the past 12 yrs. But the employees that have been there for a few yrs feel that they are above the temps and are entitled not to do the job that they were hired to do, that it's the temp employees that have to do all the work. There is no accountability in that workplace and the supervisors just sit on their phones all day in the office. Also there is a lot of harassment going on in that work environment that is not healthy for anyone also it goes unnoticed by supervisors or the supervisors join in. OSHA needs to investigate!

Not friendly environment to be in unless you are super into fitness. Little chance for advancement and poor management. Te shifts are not very well laid out so there is almost no shift that promotes a healthy work/life balance.

The company itself is good but working in the wear house sucks, they focus on telling you what you're doing wrong and they don't really help you improve yourself. there's a lot of favoritism in the work place. i've gotten in trouble for answering a question that someone asked me and then have the same supervisor talk to their friend for 30+ minutes. it's stressful and most of the employees don't care anymore because its so energy and life draining. they expect you to do and take responsibilities without a pay raise or a title. it s very unfair, they do things backwards their.

All orders that drop into the system for a certain time frame have to get done. Employees are motivated to do beyond what their goals are to get the work done early for a smooth transition to the next day. Communication is key. Always ask your about your progress in your work. Have to work quick on your feet and care about the work you present.
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – March 26, 2017
When you work for this company you are pretty much doing slave labor for ten bucks an hour. The job is simple but buy some new shoes because you will need to soak your feet in a warm bath after work. It's not the 1800's anymore but if you dont mind being a slave then by all means put in an application. The CEO quit, 90 employees were let go, and the company is on a downward spiral. There are better jobs out there. If you really need a job badly then take it to pay the bills, otherwise run like Forrest gump as far as you can. Management doesn't care about anything so complain to someone else. The turnover rate is horrendous. No room for advanement unless you're friends with someone.
401k match, gym reimbursement, work schedule
Short breaks, a lot of walking, low pay, company falling apart, people who train you have no clue what they are doing, no room for advancement
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – January 30, 2017
Great work environment where employees are encouraged to grow professionally, live a more healthy and active lifestyle, and where employees genuinely care about the work they do and the people they are helping.
Director, Global Product Regulatory Compliance (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – January 12, 2017
I have really enjoyed my experience with BBcom thus far. I have had multiple opportunities to take new responsibilities, grow and be promoted. My boss is great. The only downside would be the Executive team at times loses its intended direction and you can end up chasing loose ends.
Global Product Regulatory Compliance Specialist II (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – January 5, 2017
Working at Bodybuilding.com was by far the best job I've ever had. You were recognized and rewarded for hard work often and opportunities for advancement were given throughout the company. Unfortunately as sales declined due to multiple variables the company was forced to downsize in December of 2016 and I was part of 90 employees that were let go. Probably one of the hardest experiences of my life because I enjoyed working for that company so much.
Company Gym, great benefits, employee discount, flexible schedule, flex-time off
Tech company located in a "non-tech" area effected average salary compared to other locations
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – November 28, 2016
Bodybuilding.com was a great start for me. I felt like HR really cared for me and they are super quick to answer any questions. The benefits are incredible, the atmosphere is really supportive and the people are awesome. However, there is a pretty big separation between departments and they make it pretty difficult to move up in the company unless you brown-nose your way there. A lot of under-qualified people were put in positions they should not have been which resulted in inconsistent management. I had a great year at Bodybuilding.com and I left on my own terms. The company is great but not for longevity.
Ongoing training, vendors would come in and teach about their products. AMAZING coworkers, it felt like I worked with all of my friends.
Favoritism, there were a lot of under-qualified people who were moving into positions they shouldn't have, people are stuck in positions for years before moving up and employees are underpaid for the work.
