Excellent benefits and room for advancement, salary low for area/cost of living
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Studio City, CA – 2 January 2017
The Vitamin Shoppe is overall an excellent place to work; the company is committed to developing and advancing its staff, and with hard work one can move from a Key Holder (Shift Supervisor) up to Store Manager within eighteen months or less. They make a real effort to promote from within, which puts them ahead of many other retail organizations. The benefits package is very good, as well.
The salary is, unfortunately, not in line with the high cost of living in Los Angeles. Although they have a bonus plan, the bonus is small and few stores in the company hit it. I am one of the few Managers to make bonus, but there is no guarantee this will continue, as the supplements industry is down-trending, an issue made all the more difficult by the large hit the industry has taken from online retailers such as Amazon and Bodybuilding.com
Environment, advancement, benefits
Salary, low bonus, industry in a slump
