Area Sales Trainer (Current Employee), Ridgeland, MSOctober 28, 2014
The hiring process needs more work there shouldnt have to take so long to hire people at a store when we are short handed it takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks just to get one person hired when it only took around 30 min to do a good interview and see if they are worthy of the position.

Maintenance Tech (Current Employee), Leetsdale, PAOctober 28, 2014
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: management is ok, company doesn't like to share future moves
This company as I was told used to be wonderful. But as the company tries to make changes for the better it is affecting the people who work here, especially the veteran employees.

Store Manager (Former Employee), hickam afbOctober 28, 2014
Pros: lunch break anytime, paid faction and sick days
Cons: on slow days finding ways to bring people in
check any emails through our register system at work. check sales goals and where we are at by looking at the days before i got in and calculating how far we are to goals then assigning according for the store day and down to employee.
greeting customers and evaluating their needs by offering best products to fulfill their personal goals.
co-workers – more... all great spirited people and all also goal orientated .Hardest part of job is if anything happens to computer example : if it freezes. takes a while to get a hold of the register computer department to call and guide us to help our situation.
good part about the job is making my own schedule .being a sort of mentor to my employees. being able to meet new people everyday and making a difference in their lives. – less

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Baxter, MNOctober 23, 2014
Cons: no breaks and no full time hours
My days were pretty much the same. I talked to different customers and met a lot of interesting people. It was a solitary job, so I didn't work with other people.

I learned about health care products, sports medicine, weight management and vitamins.

Management was pretty good but I hardly ever saw them.

The hardest part was the slow days and the – more... holiday season.

I enjoyed learning about the products and felt accomplished when a customer would return and tell me that the products worked well. – less

Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee), Anchorage, AKOctober 21, 2014
Pros: working with all of the customers, learning new product knowledge
Cons: wanted to further advance, did not have the opportunity
I am very health minded. I love working with people and learning new things. General Nutrition Centers supplied all of this and more. I had a daily dose of product knowledge that really helped me work with all the customers that came through the door.

Management was really supportive and fun to work with. With their training, I was able to provide – more... my customers with the best product they needed, and I was part of a compensation program that really kept me moving forward. – less

Pros: the commission
Cons: n/a
A typical day at work was getting to know people, and being able to have the knowlage to help them better them selfs by teaching them a healthy life style that best fits them. While working there I learned how to understand people by there first imperssion, how to deal with angry customers, as well as eduating myself on different products we carried. – more... Every day I had the chance to help people, to make them feel better about themselfs, and did what ever I could to make them leave with a smile, and thats what I enjoyed the most working at GNC. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Deptford, NJOctober 16, 2014
A typical day at work at GNC was cleaning product and shelves and checking product expiration dates and selling awesome products to people that want to live a healthy life style which was so rewarding. I learned so much about how to sell certain products to certain people, how to word pricing deals, how to explain products and how they work. My manager – more... was so understanding and nice and was a great teacher, and my co-workers and I all new what teamwork meant and we helped each other build bigger sales and taught each other different things that we knew and helped each other get all the daily tasks done. Hardest part of the job was selling more than one product at a time but that also was the most enjoyable because I could help people live a healthier life style and enjoyed hearing their stories and seeing them come back again and again for more products and see how the products worked on them! – less

Full time Sales Associate (Former Employee), West Burlington, IAOctober 15, 2014
Pros: being able to enjoy the employee discount
Cons: did not have much time for lunch
a GREAT PLACE TO WORK . I learned alot about supplements and vitamins. The management was dedicated to working with you and helping you become the best and most knowledgeable associate. I believe the hardest part of the job was meeting all the sales quotas. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help people become the best they need to – more... be. – less

Great learning environment, and great sales experience.
Retail Salesperson (Current Employee), Mesa, AZOctober 8, 2014
Pros: the people.
Cons: being alone at work.
A typical day on the job is learning. You are always learning about the new things out there. I assure you that you will never have nothing to do. There is always something whether it is product rotation, shipment, or cleaning. I have learned about so many products and ingredients that I didn't know even existed before I started working here. The manger – more... that I have is one of the best people I have ever met, she is extremely understanding and gives you flexible hours based on your life schedule. There is never a dull moment with her. The hardest part of the job is remembering everything they want you to, but they will always remind you of what you can do better. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing customers come back who have reached there goal with the things I advised them to take. – less

Manager (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLOctober 8, 2014
Pros: amazing discounts on product
Cons: not much room for advancement and limited hours to work
On a typical day I sell roughly a thousand dollars worth of vitamins and supplements, keep in contact with my boss through out the day about daily operations, track daily sales, track inventory, track transactions for corporate audits, making sure all displays and merchandising is up to GNC corporate standards, and train and motivate staff to reach – more... necessary goals. I've learnt sales is all about making the customer comfortable with you and to build a solid clientele you need to establish a sense of trust between yourself and the customers. My biggest obstacle as a manager is managing employees. I try my best to treat everybody with respect, to not just be a boss but a leader. I would say the most challenging part of this job is the constant change. In a market where prices and product can change almost daily you must keep yourself and staff informed. If you don`t keep on your toes you could lose a bonus or a customer if you sell the wrong product on any given day. The three things I enjoy the most about my job is the challenge, employees, and the customers. The challenges that come with the job are enjoyable because you are never bored and always driven to do better each day, month, year. You are constantly striving to do better, which is something I can apply to all aspects of life. The employees love me as there manager so its very rewarding to hear they appreciate my leadership. Customers are what makes the job for me. I have met some really interesting people working for GNC. It`s very rewarding when a customer comes in and thanks you for your recommendation or calls the store and express their thanks about how helpful either me or the staff was to them. – less

Convenient hours and great customers
Store Manager (Former Employee), Carlisle, PAOctober 3, 2014
Pros: co-workers and hours
Cons: no breaks for 10 hours, upper level management, huge budget cuts
This company was a great entry-level management position. Unless you are a killer salesman you cannot advance in this company. The upper level management was inconsistent and did not treat employees fairly. My co-workers were fantastic! I always had a great day when I could collaborate with fellow store managers and associates.
