Sr. Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – October 9, 2018
The level of autonomy at Bodybuilding.com allows employees the ability to volunteer for new tasks and learn responsibilities as opportunities arise - compensation for those new responsibilities isn't guaranteed. Working with the understanding that Bodybuilding.com isn't the end game or the company you will likely retire from, especially if you're in the beginning of your career, will set you up for strong career moves with great resources and experience to back it up.
fun work environment, relaxed, casual
lack of transparency from mid level leadership teams, job security in question
Great place to work. Very flexible with employees and seem to have a culture idea that they adhere to.
Customer Service Team Lead (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – July 28, 2018
Day to day operations are very similar. Not a lot of variety. Did not learn much from this experience as I was already in the industry. Small Business environment with passionate people. Loved the flexibility and genuine care for employees.

Some turmoil at the top during my time there (2014-17) caused a bit of turmoil throughout, but overall, this was a good place to work. Project managers and Product owners are generally good to work with. They give decent autonomy and care about a good work/life balance.
Manager (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – March 29, 2018
Upper management has shifted and created a culture that has led employees to feel less valued and more like a number and easily replaceable. Its their way or they will walk you to the door (verbally relayed all the time). The leadership style is to direct and point fingers to get things done rather than manage and develop its employees on how they prefer the job to be done. Best part of the job is helping customers live healthier lives.
work from home, good benefits
lack of communication, no development, my way or highway attitude
Associate Business Intelligence Analyst (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – March 27, 2018
This company has incredible potential and they treat employees really well. Also, they've made a lot of improvements and good leadership changes. If you have a lot of experience, need a change of pace and value fitness, it's a great place to work.
Developer (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – February 26, 2018
There's been a ton of layoffs and employees who are let go without explanation. As a developer, you never feel secure, with reassurances coming a day or two before more people are let go. Too many lies and secrecy. When asked, we were told that they don't discuss it.
You can't have your own opinion or you'll get fired as I've seen in some cases with a few managers. Some seem to be on a quest to obtain more power as people have jumped the sinking ship, creating a power vacuum. Extremely sad to see as there are some great people working there.

Bodybuilding.com is an amazing place to work, they truly care about making an impact in someones life and there company values speak true. They allow you to bend the policies to make sure a customer has a WOW experience. The call center wasn't like a typical call center, back to back calls aren't a normal thing and they have teams to answer emails and live chats so you don't have to take calls every day of the week.
Unlimited Paid Time Off, if scheduled in advance you can get it off, Work and life balance was amazing, Personal 24-7 gym access on site along with basketball court and a volleyball court, Provided a positive work environment and was all about self improvement
IT (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – January 26, 2018
Over time the company has become a less desirable place to work. Benefits are good but leadership has been turbulent (multiple CEO in a few years) and each has taken the company in different directions. The result is confusing initiatives, fluctuating priorities and a sense that the company is rudderless. Meanwhile, competitors have seized on the company's lack of direction to place the one-time market leader in jeopardy. Management does not communicate effectively with employees. There's a tier of entrenched employees that receive preferential treatment and recognition from management, while those outside the inner circle are mostly ignored. Employees with vital experience and knowledge are walking out the door and should be taken as a sign that the company is not healthy.
Benefits, on-site gym, flexible work hours
Management, Hr, poor communication, understaffed, lacking direction
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee) – Shiremanstown, PA – January 11, 2018
Bodybuilding.com was a fun place to work for. Expect to work a lot of overtime during the weeks of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They have a sneaker program where they give all of their employees a $60 gift card for a sneaker of your choice from Footlocker. They reimburse you up to $35 for your gym membership as long as you show them proof that you had gone at least 10 times of the months. Everyone there is like a family, you will have your bad and good days with everyone, but overall as long as you're doing your job no one should have an issue with you. Not much room for advancement which is why i left but a great laid back job to build warehouse experiences. The more you know how to do the more you get paid.
Paid vactions, Shoe Program, Set shifts, Reimbursed Gym memberships, great envirnment and people.
Is'nt the greatest with communication, some favoritism, limited to none position advancement, some supervisors/management do not practice what they preach

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.
