Sales Associate (Current Employee), Greenville, NCJune 14, 2015
Upon employment you complete The Vitamin Shoppe University. This program educates you on compliment alternative therapies and more. A typical day would include customer service, education on supplements and listening to clients overall goals. I learned many functions of herbal supplements. The most enjoyable part of the job is referring a plan or supplement to help with the clients goals and the customer comes back and thanks you for the great results. Most rewarding job I have ever had.

Determined Health environment
Health Enthusiast (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 4, 2015
Cons: As a sales associate you get little to no benefits, will move you around to different stores based on their own company needs.
A typical day working for this company would include several rushes of customers, anywhere from 15 to 50 totes of shipment, that have to be stocked during the day, and many daily tasks. Some of those tasks include opening the store, cleaning glass and counter surfaces, and adjusting store products. Closing tasks would include sweeping, mopping, recounting cash registers, wiping down surfaces again , and adjusting store products. Co-workers are friendly and the company is very tight knit, but this can be a problem to someone who is looking for privacy when speaking to managers and co-workers. Hardest part of the job would be learning all the information but it is also the most enjoyable part because you get to properly inform your customers of what it is they need.

Fast Pace environment, must have upbeat personality, opportunities for personal growth
Sales Associate (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 22, 2015
This is a company that requires a lot of patience and time, it will teach you a lot about the health and fitness industry, but there are not that many promotional opportunities, who you know can be more important than what you know when working for this company. A lot of the times some managers do not follow the companys rules or procedures and the DM does not respect confidentiality so be very careful what you divulge because you don't want to make an uncomfortable work environment for yourself. You will be moved around a lot and you get no respect or benefits as a Health Enthusiast. If applying to this company, apply for a higher position because the turnover rate of health enthusiast is VERY high for good reasons.

Third Key Holder (Former Employee), South Portland, MEApril 25, 2015
Pros: Free Ice creams
Cons: Hardly enough breaks for all the hard work I was doing
I was opening the doors, and closing on other nights. The deliveries would arrive so I'de place items away while talking to every customer that walked in the door. I was responsible for inventory tracking, mail confirmations, time charts, hourly sales reports, and much more. A fun summer job that went for a year, until I moved.

Health Enthusiest (Current Employee), CaliforniaApril 24, 2015
Working at the Vitamin Shoppe is a tall glass of frustration and never ending monotony. You are constantly chasing your own tail in hopes of catching it. This is not a fun place to work.

Fun place to work
Lead key holder (Former Employee), Avondale, AZApril 16, 2015
Pros: holidays off
Cons: non flexible
The Vitamin Shoppe was a very fun place to work. It was a fast passed environment that helped me grow into a harder worker. A typical day at work included; customer service, completing multiple product rotations and maintaining a clean work place. All of my co workers were easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job would have had to been completing shipments of high volume. On high volume shipment days only having two associates on the clock made it difficult. One part of the job that I personally enjoyed was helping the customers pick out supplements that would help achieve personal goals.
