Poor Management, Poor Company Results
Inventory Manager (Former Employee) – Secaucus, NJ – 10 August 2016
As a former employee, I strongly urge potential applicants to reconsider hitting the 'Submit' button when completing an application for a role with The Vitamin Shoppe.
Although the company's recent financial results should speak for themselves, it cannot be understated that The Vitamin Shoppe is an organization clearly moving in a southward direction. Arrogant, underperforming executive managers need to be replaced. Top-level decision making has negatively impacted the organizational culture, and the attrition rate (especially among certain departments) is embarrassingly high.
Applicants to Marketing and Merchandising roles may be okay, as the company's new CEO is a merchant at heart and the entirety of his investment in human resources reflects this orientation. Applications to other non-customer facing roles, though, should absolutely steer clear - it's not the place to grow!
