    Hey guys I have an opportunity to take a part time job at my local GNC or Max Muscle.

    I submitted both resumes today and it looks good for whatever I choose.

    GNC----I have had bad experiences in the past with uneducated salesman
    but figured I could add a little education to their younger staff and maybe make a little money.
    Store was well organized, Potential hours are available.
    Carries wide array of overpriced supplements like many of you know.


    Muscle Max---- carries my personal taste of supplements.
    Store seemed pretty slow. Two employees total work there.
    Not very well organized, less possible hours, with possibly less money to be made.
    Positives are 50'' Plasma, computer, and great supplements :)

    Please help me decide where to work and why.

    Thanks

    No not at all.

    I am hoping someone on OT has worked at one or the other.
    Looking to be swayed to one or the other. :)

    If the GNC is in a very popular shopping center or mall you could make pretty good money. I worked at GNC for 2 years when I was younger. During gold card week we would easily pull in 20-30 dollars extra from spiffs during our shift.

    The GNC is in a very popular shopping center.

    Muscle Max is in a new shopping center on a less exposed part of town. :(

    Well, Max Muscle seems like an incredibly boring job with poor pay. Only problem with GNC is that you do have to push sales. Your gold card sales and multi sales will have to meet a certain expectation. Your store will be competing with all the other stores in your region every week for the highest numbers. So be prepared to deal with that crap.
