Average at best, great for those starting out in the work force.
Key Holder/Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Shrewsbury, MA – 4 February 2017
Fairly easy place to work especially if you're into supplements and how they can affect one's lifestyle in a positive manner. All you really have to do is keep the store clean, stock the floor, block and face, and rotate stock aside of opening and closing responsibilities. Depending on the manager you may contribute to store functions like health events or changing end caps. Relatively upbeat work environment and most try to incorporate a fun atmosphere. You will learn a lot about herbs, vitamins, minerals, sports supplements, and a little bit about diseases/ailments as well as basic nutrition. Most enjoyable part of the job is successfully being able to apply what you learn about supplements to help customers. Most difficult part of the job would probably be keeping up with all the sales changes, changeovers, rotations, and effectively stocking to planogram. Overall not difficult. Management is average in the sense that it's a small team so not that much to manage aside of delegating tasks. Downsides are low pay, overtime is near nonexistent and it isnt easily approved, scheduling is a mess and work/personal life balance is where you should prepare to not be able to have much of a consistent personal life. Too much sacrifice for too little reward. The people are usually cool which is a plus side but means very little in relation to what you would want in a job in terms of pay, life balance, benefits.
