Quality, Opelika, AL - May 26, 2015
After working at Pharmavite only a few months I realized I made a terrible mistake by choosing Pharmavite as a career choice. The management team are like high school students, they have a click and if you are not in that click you can forget moving up in the company. After receiving several awards and an excellent yearly review, I received a 29 cent raise, the lowest raise I have ever received. In all I would not recommend working at Pharmavite if you are looking for a career.
