General Nutrition Centers Employee

"I’ve worked for GNC for 9 years. From Part time to a District Manager. The opportunity to move up was once great until new management took over. Management cares only about the dollar, not about employees work life or fare wages!"

"Extremely demanding and toxic work environment. The morale is at an all-time low since the company is closing stores left and right. The only good thing about this job is helping people with their health needs. This company can not keep employees on staff whatsoever. Managers and associates quit after they see the destruction that is this company."

"I love health products, but GNC is too expensive, gimmicky, hypocritical. While an employee, I shopped at other online sites because even my discount wasn't good enough. Some GNC brand products are good, but they focus far too hard on selling their own items when third party competitors are often better. Also, they claim to be about helping the customer, while still always hassling sales associates about not selling enough GNC vitamins or chews."
