    I have been working at GNC part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I work part-time at GNC while I go to school full-time. The managers I've worked for are usually younger and friendly they tend to be very flexible with scheduling and will work around what you have going on in your life. You can make decent money if you are good at selling, plus you get really good product discounts. You also will get sample boxes from different reps so more free stuff is always good. If you are looking to go into a sales profession it is a good starting point for learning how to do personal selling. Overall it is a good college job, but I would not want to make a career of it.

    Cons

    Some of the sales goals are laughably unrealistic. Managers and higher ups will yell at you about low numbers, which can be an added stress that some people can not afford. The training is almost non-existent they basically work with you for three shifts and then you are on your own. It can get very boring because you usually work by yourself, I typically work for 6 hours and see about 10 customers, so prepare to be playing on your phone for a while. It is hard to keep good numbers and make good money with commission. Typically you will either make decent money and have a low employee ranking or you will make just a little above minimum wage and have a great employee ranking. Overall if you can't afford another worry in life GNC is not the place for you because they put heavy emphasis on your numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect more with you managers. In my area the Regional Sales Director is very distant from employees and when he talks to them he is very condescending. Sometimes as a sales associate I feel very disconnected from the company I would be much more willing to make a better effort at sales numbers if I got complimented, but I only here from management if I am doing something wrong. It is important for the managers to trust the RSD and in my situation I believe there is a disconnect between them.
