GNC Reviews

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.

Great company with many supplements. Very helpful associates and know a lot about the supplements! However, sometimes the associates can be a little pushy since they do work on commission. A little more customer service and less selling techniques would be appreciated.
GNC is a popular brick and mortar supplement chain. The company has been trying to reinvent itself over the past few years with new programs and cost structures. The effort is greatly appreciated. However due to the financial struggles that the company faces the pressure from upper management can be felt on every level. The goals change frequently with little explanation to justify the changes. The company lacks one true solid plan, which admittedly is difficult to create for GNC's position. GNC has also taken a hit on the stock market. With the stock being shorted often. In short, good workers on the base level, however the company is struggling to finds its niche that'll help bring it back to the once strong company it was years ago.
