Boring Job

Very unsatisfied working for this company, we as employees were forced to upsell products that scientifically were as good as placebos. Employees were pressured weekly to promote certain products.

Positive in the work environments make for a good day
Sales Associate/Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Oshawa, ON5 December 2018
A typical work day for me is fun. I believe that everyone should keep and maintain a positive attitude in and outside the work environment. While that may not be easy to do for some people it works for me. You have to keep an open mind and be ready to take the good with the bad but at the end f the day you survive.
Pros
Free sample products and Employee discounts
Cons
Not enough hours not full time

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.

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!
