Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 November 2017
Selling health products and educating customers on which products are best for their needs. Also learning about what products can benefit one person. Another plus side you receive samples from companies as well 10% discount on all products in stores.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 4 November 2017
Great place to work if you're in high school or college. You learn a lot about health and get to earn some money while you're at it. Management was great and set realistic expectations. Good starter job for retail.
Good commission pay on top of hourly pay
Keeping the store looking presentable is a constant challenge
Working at GNC has its perks. You earned pay plus commission, the employees were great and there was dinners hosted by supplement companies. I learned a great deal at GNC with regards to product training and I had a dedicated customer base The hours were flexible when I was in school
shifts were mostly evenings/weekends, high pressure sales environment
Sales (Current Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 1 October 2017
Great working with people that share the same desire to help people. Management is not always available and there is not a lot of room to grow. Often critical however, making sales is the best part of the day.

I wouldn't recommend this company at this moment. They have finally changed upper management. Maybe good things next year. Do your research on this company. If buying from a GNC store get someone that is knowledgeable and trains too and uses supplements.
Employee (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 September 2017
The company needs to adapt to the current year. They people working at the stores or in the head offic are nice, but it’s upper management that made the place a nightmare. Long hours, manage-by-fear, lack of advancement.
continuous learning experiences in regards to health and supplements
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 September 2017
A typical day at work would be greeting customers and getting to know them and their fitness goals at a personal level in order to determine what it is they should purchase in order to achieve said goals. On the job I only had a limited surface level amount of knowledge when came to health, but over the past few months on the job I learned more about bodybuilding and powerlifting and the types of products certain clientele require in order to either gain size, cut weight or maintain health. The hardest part of the job would be doing rotations or sorting out the inventory when shipment arrives.
