Closely monitored workplace
Manager (Former Employee) – Tiffin, OH – February 14, 2019
A typical work day included performing the necessary daily tasks such as cleaning, organizing, and interacting with customers. The company prides itself on their products and strongly encourage associates to sell GNC brand as well as vitamins. My biggest issue was many of my customers weren't interested in vitamins or ready-to-drink beverages so my numbers were poor in this category. My overall sales were great for my location, as I even had an increase from the previous year. Despite these sales, the regional manager was not pleased with my efforts and constantly had me calling other stores to ask how they were having success with selling multivitamins.
It comes down to having to sell a desired number of a certain product rather than making the customer happy.
