Fast paced, always new information to learn
Retail Manager (Current Employee) –  GuamOctober 17, 2017
This is not just a retail job, you have to HAVE the desire to learn about overall health, conditions, basic medication contraindications, latest fitness trends, and overall desire to want to help people in their quest for a healthier life style.

Customer Service is top priority and essential. Everyone thinks that what we do is easy but it's not. You need to learn all the products on top of retail operations.

I love what I do. Being able to see a regular customers transformation journey for the better and knowing that you had a role.

It's an alright place with the right people
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington StateOctober 13, 2017
I used this job as a means to an end. In the Tulalip store it was a constant fight for sales, and no one got along with each other. In other stores where sales weren't so high, it was more enjoyable to work because there wasn't stress between associates and there was no money involved.
Pros
dicounts
Cons
co workers, management, and placment

A typical day, as a store manager, consisted of picking up the bank deposit, balancing the cash drawer, identifying customer needs and recommending the appropriate products, scheduling employee workflow, training, mentoring and coaching employees.

Engaging with customers was the most enjoyable aspect of my job.

Learn to maximize effectiveness
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Branson, MOSeptember 22, 2017
Vitamin World is a company that will teach you important skills for your future. Mostly, you learn the importance of time management. There is much to do in a short period of time. We, as store managers, work by ourselves most of the time. This means we must balance working the sales floor as well as taking care of all operational duties. Multi-tasking is of the utmost importance.

Great place for promoting health
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Mankato, MNJuly 29, 2017
This job provides the opportunity to learn about supplements and how they can serve a purpose in the health. People will come to you with many different questions and ailments, some looking for education on supplements and others hoping that you can provide them with something that will actually work. This job can be very rewarding if you like to help people and are willing to research and learn about the products.
