Good learning experience
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB17 August 2018
Learnt a lot about nutrition and supplements. Great first job or if you have a passion for health and nutrition. They used to pay really well. When I left they still had bonuses. Lots of down time. Cleaning. Poorly managed. They need to revamp the company to boost morale. Left as company has high expectations but doesn’t value their employees.
Pros
Learnt a lot about my passion
Cons
Rude employees

Retail Sales Job
Sales and Customer Representative (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 July 2018
It used to be a fun place to work until they got rid of pay bonuses. The company continues to get cheaper and find ways to pay the employees less and less. Just a typical retail sales job. Fun while you are in high school/ University.
Pros
Fun work environment
Cons
Boring sometimes

Pretty good
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Bedford, NS19 January 2018
The best part is that you get to help customers find a solution, or product to better their life. The pay is okay with commission, but if it's a slow store, it's not super great!

Not many full time or growth positions.

Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 September 2017
I wouldn't recommend this company at this moment. They have finally changed upper management. Maybe good things next year. Do your research on this company. If buying from a GNC store get someone that is knowledgeable and trains too and uses supplements.
Pros
Makes amazon look great!
Cons
Too much to tell.

Poor place to work
Employee (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 September 2017
The company needs to adapt to the current year. They people working at the stores or in the head offic are nice, but it’s upper management that made the place a nightmare. Long hours, manage-by-fear, lack of advancement.
Pros
The people you work with
Cons
The culture

Customer service is most important, you learn a lot about products and how/ who can take them. I like helping people starting out on meal and workout plans and seeing the succeed.

Slow days are challenging
