Stressful management position with constant upper management turnover
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – May 31, 2019
VS claims to be a collaborative culture but since the CEO change it has been slowly stripped of the customer service culture and replaced with a Walgreens culture of bare bones service and over taxing salaried employees. If you can't get your part time staff and full time hourly staff through background checks that drag on forever. Than salaried management just has to absorb the hours.
Awesome place to work if you have a passion for health and fitness and if you enjoy connection with people, but very messy environment locally.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – TN – July 22, 2019
I'm going to keep this short and straight to the point. I LOVE my job at the Vitamin Shoppe. I could work here forever because they give me a platform to do what I love. But the environment locally is terrible to say the least. The District Manager is extremely non confrontational and refuses to hold long tenured store managers accountable for their poor leadership skills and their unprofessional and petty behavior. This is the worst environment I've ever worked in, and I see no end to this unless higher management hold certain individuals accountable for being messy and keeping up drama. Still love my job only because of my team and the customers. They make it worth my while!!
