sales associate (Former Employee) –  Columbus, ohioAugust 13, 2018
The overall job experience working for GNC was fun, learned a lot about what to eat to help the body. Working with GNC and the management was great because they understood my school schedule and worked with me on that.

Great work culture and environment
Retail Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Bartlett, ILAugust 12, 2018
A very fun job with great people. It helped my sales career begin years ago. Although this was a great job, it did not offer great pay and there was not much room for advancement. This was a job post high school, while I was in College.

Very busy location well stock store.
Co Manager (Former Employee) –  Harrison, NJAugust 12, 2018
Very high paced store in busy location. I learned product knowledge and company standards. The store manger and owner was very knowledgeable and fair. I was able to make many decisions and requests in my time working. The hardest part of working with this company was not being able to help the customers by not having product. the most enjoyable part of working for this company was be able make lasting relationships with the customers.
Pros
Employee discounts
Cons
Not much opportunity to grow with the company.

Mission Has Been Lost
Sales and Nutritional/Supplement Advisor (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 9, 2018
GNC's overall goal and mission as a company was to help every customer reach their healthy lifestyle goals through supplementation. I believe that mission has been lost and overtaken by getting as many people as possible to sign up for paid membership and each customer leave with as many items as possible, GNC specific items.

Standard dead-end retail job
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAAugust 9, 2018
Great job if you are a student and need part-time employment. Beyond that, minimal opportunities for raises, promotions, or full-time hours. Strong push from corporate to sell certain products or services, regardless of quality compared to other products.

did not like it
Part-time sales Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 9, 2018
job is very demanding and manager barely taught me anything, since many GNC's are just desperate for workers. My experience may be different for someone else, but I did not enjoy working at GNC

Worst work experience
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INAugust 8, 2018
The manager that I had for this job was the worst experience I have ever had. He would constantly call employees while they were with customers and berate them for minor mistakes made weeks ago.

Horrible place to work because manager was very unprofessional and awful
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  West Covina, CAAugust 7, 2018
Learned more about Inventory
Learned the basics of being a sales rep
Didn't like meeting quotas and pushing products on people
Was miserable working there because of the manager
Stuck it out as long as i could because it paid well hourly plus bonuses/commission pay
Regular customers were always really cool
Pros
The hourly pay + commission
Cons
The Manager

okay part time job for those in school
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Shreveport, LAAugust 6, 2018
too much required from part time workers for minimal pay. paycheck fluctuates too much depending on if you have enough commission sales. A lot is expected from part time workers to maintain store balance for minimal pay. Especially in lower volume sales areas.
Pros
great opportunity to learn healthy lifestyle
Cons
hardly any pay

Terrible place to work
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Coralville, IAAugust 6, 2018
Did not enjoy working here. Was thrown in by management and pretty much told to work. NOT the place for social people to work. Company can’t seem to get anything right and the upper management is terrible

Good starter job but not a place to grow
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Vista, CAAugust 5, 2018
the company says it prides itself on helping customers reach goals. but focused more on making associates sell items that are on promotion. work was relatively easy however; the only rewards you get for hard work are un-appreciation and lack of advancement despite the accolades you may receive. if you're looking for a entry level job until you find a career, this ia a place for you. however if you're looking to advance and grow steer clear.
Pros
helping customers reach there goals
Cons
managment cares more about selling items than the overall customer needs

Good place to work, but lot of system issues
Senior Payroll Analyst (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAAugust 5, 2018
Had the best manager. Good work atmosphere. No such thing as a typical day. I learned a lot about payroll tax and resolving tax issues with employees paychecks. Most enjoyable part of the job was learning how to resolve issues.
Pros
Free fruit on Tuesdays
Cons
Every team is too small to accomodate work load.

A job not career
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  FloridaAugust 5, 2018
There is a constant changing landscape, daily even. Wages are barely enough to fully support yourself, but not a family. Opportunity to advance to a manager is high, past that is almost impossible. Upper management (RSD/DSD) can dictate how happy you are with your job. Very little help and very few hours to give to employees. Overall a good, not great place to work
Pros
Scheduling freedom
Cons
Everchanging, low pay, working alone

Sometimes fast paced, sometimes slow
Sales Associate and Key Holder (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 5, 2018
It would be a mix of both fast and slow. At times customers already knew what they were getting so you wouldn't have to help them out much because they already told you what they wanted to get. Calm environment and very competitive when it comes to selling their brand. Also makes you have to sign them up for loyalty, a lot of pressure that goes into that when customers don't want to pay 40 dollars for such a program.
Pros
Calm, and competitive
Cons
Having to persuade them to buy 40 dollars loyalty program
