I love what I do! It is very rewarding in the fact that I'm changing lives of some of these people. I love being able to assist customers and play a vital role in enhancing their health. Its gotta to the point where I'm building relationships of trust, and that alone has customers coming back for that one-on-one experience that only we can provide when we construct and customize their regimens. The best part is that the knowledge that we share really presents itself in their results.

General Nutritions Center is an incredibly hit or miss workplace. Their is an extreme lack of organization and synergy between individual stores and upper management, which poses a problem in a company that is based off of sales goals that change bi-weekly. This leaves most of the day-to-day operations in the hands of the store managers, who are often underpaid and thus unmotivated in their positions, leaving most stores (though not all) in a state of unknowing what they are working towards, and dismantling any notion of teamwork that might be present.
I worked for GNC for about a year and a half. Started as a sales associate and moved up to store manager within 4 months.

Overall the experience was good, I love health and fitness so the products were exciting to me. Some of my workers didn't have quite the same passion and then again others did.

Pros: Discounted products which is good if you use them.
Ability to make commission and add to your check. If you love health, fitness and supplements then I'd recommend checking out GNC.

Cons: High turnover rate for employees and especially upper management. Low base pay. A lot of shifts you work alone. No music in stores so it's silent if a customer doesn't feel like having a conversation. Some employees don't want to be there and not enough applicants to fix issue.
