Tons of free supplements

Tons of free supplements but long late shifts that do not allow much of a work/ life balance. Not too many breaks are allowed. Great job for students or part time employees.

Long, late shifts

Positive environment to work in with tight-nit group of like-minded individuals.
Sales Associate and Staff (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 October 2018
Management treats employees with respect and consideration contrary to typical retail style. Flexible hours , and workplace culture for the most part is positive and fun.
Shifts are normal, helping customers, unloading orders, and improving product knowledge of over hundreds of sports supplements.
Not a difficult job, store duties are straight forward, and typical cash out protocols are simple. Product knowledge and recommendation is 90% of the customer interaction so it helps to have prior knowledge however not mandatory.
Most unenjoyable part of the job is dealing with the rude and disrespectful customers. Depending on the location , some stores can be quite busy for one employee to handle along with store orders and upkeep, so not a lot of time to eat or take a break.
Days can also be painfully slow and boring during certain times in the year.
Pros
Discounts, staff outings and considerate management.
Cons
Can be boring at times, or extremely overwhelmingly busy.

Environnement de travail socialement agréable

Diverse customer base - mediocre employee leadership
Full-time Employee (Former Employee) –  London, ON9 February 2018
One of my most interesting work experiences to date.
With a large, unique, and diverse demographic, the Popeye's Supplement chain has an enormous market creating enormous room for further business opportunities and growth. It is a shame to be wasted on the poor leadership skills that I have observed and personally undergone during my employment in their organization.
Pros
Product price-matching
Cons
Bad management

Good job, a lot to learn but very rewarding
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC17 November 2017
This job Is as easy/hard as you make it. You can learn the basics which, while hard, isn't too bad and get by. Or you can learn a lot and excell.

There also a lot of busy work between clients, but it's not strict/uptight about it.
