Pros: quiet, easy going work atmosphere
Cons: low pay, unrealistic sales goals, management is incompetent
Unrealistic sales goals. Getting good sales overshadows customer service. High turn over. Low pay. Management is mostly incompetent.

Store Manager (Current Employee), North Port, FLNovember 9, 2014
Pros: discounts, not a very high volume so a lot of down time, reasonable commissions
Cons: pay, healthcare, and micromanaged
GNC is a great environment to work if you are sales oriented. If you are shy or timid this is not the job for you. The industry has helped me to further understand the underlying ins and outs of retail. From profit and loss reports to financial projections. Have seen many come and go because they are not prepared for the sales environment and think – more... that their job is to be a cashier, not a sales associate. – less

Great place for health/fitness enthusiasts
Store Manager (Former Employee), Harper Woods, MINovember 7, 2014
The pay isn't the best but it's great for people who love health/fitness. The discount is nice also. I worked here very long ago so I don't know about the current work culture. While I was there, we all became very close across various stores, but eventually we all left for better opportunities.

Competitive workplace with advancement opportunity
Store Manager/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Richmond, VANovember 6, 2014
Pros: enjoyable work environment, good job security, opportunity for growth
Cons: inconsistent hours
A typical day included interacting with and recommending products to customers, maintaining a neat workspace, keeping shelves stocked, creating sales goals for myself and other employees, processing various digital documents, attending conference calls, making nightly cash deposits, and sorting papers in filing cabinet. I augmented my persuasive skills – more... and sales ability, learned to prioritize tasks, and learned how to lead a team. As part of the GNC Management team, I believe stores are efficiently run, and professional relationships are appropriately developed with employees. The most difficult part of the job for me is discipline and termination of my employees. I have learned how to better view it in a business perspective and can carry out necessary actions without personal conflict. The most enjoyable part of the job is training new-hires. – less

Always Work To Be Done.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), MarylandNovember 5, 2014
The management really makes one feel like a part of the team. Tons of teamwork needed with all the moving parts in the store and they really did a good job at capturing the spirit of that.

Very immature dynamic.
Sales associate (Former Employee), Tampa, FLNovember 4, 2014
Pros: commissions on 3rd party products
Cons: dog eat dog atmosphere, gossiping, throwing under the bus, middle school 'click' dynamic, very political as far as who gets moved up, not based completely on job performance, very subjective, who brown noses the most
The job seems to attract immature drama queen Males. Very Dog eat Dog. Expected to sell products to customers that they might not need nor want. You do learn how to sell and manipulate customers if you consider that a good thing.

Tons of room for advancement, but zero structure and very strenuous as far as sales goals.
Manager (Former Employee), Apple valley, Beaumont, banningNovember 4, 2014
Pros: always oppertunity for advancement.
Cons: gnc makes you train your replacement.
GNC has its ups and downs just like most companies, but there unreal quotas and sales goals made the job a nightmare. I also do not like the fact that they train you to take someones job, it can create a lot of animosity, which kills the meaning of teamwork.

Typically fast paced sales enviroment.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee), Colorado Springs, CONovember 3, 2014
Individual stores will vary as far as volume sold and customers per day. Sales goals are based on volume and can be challenging at times to meet.
Customer service is always considered priority number one.

Pros: good pay and a good way to meet great people
Cons: awful corporate
My days where pretty simple count in the morning, do stock, and help customers. When I was offered management I received no training for about a month and a half. They always blame you as the employee no matter what happens

Enjoyable depending on location
Higher Management (Current Employee), Fresno, CAOctober 29, 2014
Pros: the customers and employees
Cons: pay
Typical day at work entails restocking and rotating product, as well as cleaning. I have learned a lot of about health and fitness working here, and have enjoyable co workers. The cons about the job, is pay. I was making more as an assistant manger, than I was as a manager. it did have to do with location, but they would not budge on raising my pay – more... higher, when i was performing more duties as a manger. – less

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.

great location
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
