Great Place
I worked with GNC during the gold old days in 2006. They paid out high PM's and I had an all-star team.
We had the same team of 6 employees for nearly 5 years straight and we all made good money, mainly because we were in Ontario's largest and busiest mall.

We would make over $200 daily in PM's so it was killer money for young people and part-timers.


We had a great manager who was stern but fair and ran a good store. I honestly had a great time working there.

Decent job, not worth it
Does not pay nearly enough for what they expect of you. High pressure sales. Meet numbers.
Very coorperate.

Treating employees terrible during the COVID crisis. No cleaning supplies.

Used to be a great place of employment
Major shift in culture with new leadership team that was brought in. Poorly organized business structure. Last few months felt like I was working at a barn surrounded by headless chickens.

Great place to work with the right team
overall my experience at GNC has been great the crew you have really makes a difference in wether or not you will enjoy and thrive in the workplace. That being said the big wiggs of the company are sub par.

Get job to gain knowledge of the health and wellness industry
Great place to work. Company pays a lot of attention to sales associates and management, and are always open to new ideas. I worked with some amazing managers and sales associates that always made for a fun day of going to work.

Good job for education in the supplement industry
Slow-paced but informative work, contact learning and updating knowledge on brands, productions, and changes within the supplement industry. Overall was a good experience.

Worst working experience
One of the worst places you can work. If you are the manager you can somewhat make your store enjoyable based on who you hire.

Expect NO help for anything from upper management as they do not understand the products or business in general.


0 room to grow in the company, underpaid weekly and it is expected that you work for free at times.

A business that will eventually close there doors
They have closed over 900 stores within Canada and the US. Canada still doesn’t have its own website so customers get terribly confused. They still have the gold card system so you still have to pay $10 just to get the member price instead of the non member price (20% difference). Finally, they fired everyone in there head office and replaced them with people that don’t even know what they are doing. Sad the company took such a turn.

Always learning about new products
Good commission, flexible house and work life balance. Always learning about the products and general supplementation. Discount isn't that great but worth it on special occasions.

Overall good work balance
Overall, enjoyed working at GNC. It was a team effort. Duties included a scope of activities such as markdowns, displays, inventory schedules, working alone or with a group. Wage was good until the closure of the store.

It would be a great place to work but it would all depend on your manager.
It would be a great place to work but it would all depend on your manager. I had the opportunity to learn about a lot of supplements. I enjoyed helping customers achieve their goals by recommending products I truly believed that could help them.

Nice Job
I really enjoy this job. The only Downside is when upper management sets new rules and changes some operative characteristics on the system without telling us. Also the amount of hours that are given to employees are not enough.

Enjoyed working for my manager more than the company
I was brought into GNC at store level by a friend after moving back into my home town. I excelled at the position and quickly moved into managing my own store. After managing for about 5 years, I accepted a position in the Canadian Head office. Once I was at the head office I realized that the major hurdle is the US office. The US office sets unrealistic goals, refuses to help you, denies you the things you need to obtain to achieve the goals, refuses to update your systems and hardware, and forces changes on you that best serve their stores which do not work on your outdated systems.
Pros
Flex Hours
Cons
Unrealistic goals, Work tasks outside of job title, Work load greater than a 40 hour work week
