Laid back place to work
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Tarentum, PAJune 11, 2014
Pros: discounts on products
Cons: pay, could be more flexible
Everyday I am at GNC is about the customer. Yes, I do other things around the store, but the customers ALWAYS come first...that's a big thing I learned from working there...to put others first. Most of my managers I have had have been super awesome and very laid back which makes things easier. I get along well with all of my co-workers. Probably the – more... hardest part of the job is when a customer asks a totally off the wall question and I'm not quite sure how to answer it. I try my best to think quickly on my feet because I want to help every person that comes through the store. The most enjoyable part of the job would probably be getting to meet many different people throughout the week. – less

Enjoyable work where every customer was different
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Auburn, MEJune 10, 2014
Pros: very upbeat
Cons: no breaks, sometimes very slow
A typical day at GNC consisted of opening the store, register, etc. Afterwords, product counts were done and the floors were cleaned. Customers would come in at any given time with hopes of finding a product that suited their needs. This is where I came into play. I used knowledge gained to help them find a product that would help them achieve their – more... goals.

I learned a lot about weight management and nutrition as well as how to set up promotions, accept shipments and a lot about customer service.

The hardest part of the job was honestly finding the perfect product for each customer seeing how every situation was different. I took it in stride though and usually made it work.

I loved learning about new products that we would receive in shipments. I find it interesting to learn about how certain things work in the body to help with weight loss/muscle growth. – less

Fun place to work, company loves its money
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Biloxi, MSJune 7, 2014
Pros: fun coworkers and interesting customers
Cons: the greed of the company
I liked most everyone I worked with. I migrated between four stores. Many of the customers were regulars and were very nice. Most days were easy. GNC likes to push a lot of products that aren't worth the price. There were daily and weekly quotas. These made the job overly stressful.
