Store Manager (Current Employee) – Easley, SC – 24 April 2017
The job itself is great! I love the company and the people I work with. The only downfall is some of the upper management is not really involved with the stores. They are hard to contact and seem not to care as much as they should. The job is easy and you get to learn about so much about interesting products. The customers are great also!
Learning material, paid holidays, laid back environment
Not a lot of help from upper management, long hours
Manager (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – 19 April 2017
Decent place to work for the most part, however plenty of issues that could be handled MUCH better. Tend to show favoritism, even if you are knowledgeable, hard working, and fun to be around, you may not ever see a promotion.
Health Enthusiast (Former Employee) – Dedham, MA – 12 April 2017
A typical work day would go from twelve in the afternoon to about nine o'clock at night. We would help with basic customer service help regarding weightlifting and diet supplements, as well as overall health goals and questions people had. We would also constantly check and make sure the store was clean, neat, and presentable for the customers coming in.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Puyallup, WA – 12 April 2017
Not a lot of room for advancement. Prefers to hire outside of the company and not promote from within. Dynamic geared towards sales and not customer service. Does not trust employees. Overall a stable place to work and learn about the health industry on your own time.
The Vitamin Shoppe was a great place to work. At the time, I went to college full-time, and I was always able to compromise with my schedule if need be. I became close to all my co workers and almost never had a problem with any individual. Highly recommended.
Health Enthusiast (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – 6 April 2017
Great place to gain knowledge about the health products they sell within the facility. Friendly environment and also an active one. If looking for a career to get your foot in the health door, this is the job to have.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – SC – 5 April 2017
Company does not reward dedicated employees. Employees that have spent almost 10 years with the company have been used and unsupported with little pay increase and no advancement. With high turnover rates, employees are unable to maintain or even reach the unrealistic expectations which are not shared with them until later. Disappointed in the "little to no care" they have for those that have served this company well. Know that when they use you, they get rid of you with little to no notice. Furthermore, they will set you up for failure and suggest that it's your fault.
Special Project Technician (Former Employee) – North Bergen, NJ – 28 March 2017
Nice 5 week contract project. Very nice environment both on the IT side and with the clients. Very casual atmosphere. IT management very hands off. Provided clear scope of work and the results expected. Reported work results on Friday afternoon and expected work for the coming week.
Part Time Manager (Current Employee) – Lancaster, PA – 27 March 2017
In my personal opinion I think the Vitamin Shoppe has been an outstanding place to work. They have taught me so many different techniques and responsibilities that I will one day use for my career. The Vitamin Shoppe works around my schedule along with the other employees who work there. We have a great connection among all the employees, and it's never an uncomfortable place to work. I have learned management skills, communication skills, the nutrition facts about supplements I never thought I would know. I have learned over 400 different products and the unique importance of each of them. The hardest part of my job is getting a customer who can simply not be satisfied. The most enjoyable part of my job is making a customer happy, and giving them a product they truly need and or can benefit from.
Working at the Vitamin Shoppe is a very pleasant experience each and every day. Every customer comes in with a certain necessity and even though we are trained in (Wellness and in Fitness), every case is very different. I enjoy having to do research to help customers with certain special conditions that require more information for me to assist them. Learning is something that never ends at the Vitamin Shoppe. As part of the management team, we ensure that we keep track of numbers constantly so everyone is on the same page, looking to make the goal.
