    "A place for a paycheck"

    1.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Bodybuilding.com full-time

    Pros

    The gym, free supplements and benefits.

    Cons

    This was a 5 star company years ago. Times have changed and the true ninjas have moved on. I get it, change is inevitable; however, the people make the culture and they're all gone now. Nothing but dips with buckets now.

    I have been working at Bodybuilding.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. Even the free gym isn't worth the soul-crushing experience of working for people who have no character, no ethics, and no sense of service to their fellow employees.

    Cons

    - No one knows what they're doing. - All the smart people are gone. - The CEO is an egomaniac. So is the CDO. - Lack of morale, happiness, energy.

    I have been working at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I feel I have been here so long I am a sacred cow in a field of steroid stock cattle. So I feel my job is safe because I say good morning and good night to every leader I see to stay in good graces. It seems to have worked so far. One good thing is our legal team is finally equalized by the departure of our most "knowledgable" legal asset. Maybe we can stop getting sued for the mistakes of our leadership team. So that is a plus. That means more money to our bottom line, which means more money for me.

    Cons

    Oh where do I start...? Nah, I wont. Trust me when I say, if you can work somewhere else, DO IT. Haha or you can come here and get solicited and paid to write nice reviews about our company on Glassdoor. Putting "Lipstick on a Pig" as I think they say it.

    I worked at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company is now a great a place for people who are looking to learn a lot in a short amount of time. Your job title might say one thing, but you will learn the aspects of the job next to you and above you. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn new things as the company is understaffed.

    Cons

    The company’s morale is virtually non-existent. The company culture from the time before 2015 no longer exists, the hirings of the last four years brought in completely new management that has driven almost any employee with more than 4 years of experience away. Despite their assertions that the company treats their employees well, they don’t. Promises by management are regularly dismissed as impossible due to “current circumstances” or because the company “will not operate that way”. Do not expect any promotion or salary raise, they won’t do it anymore. That same rule does not apply however if you are a VP or higher. The “promotions” two years ago to everyone already at the executive level were for pay raises to themselves, it was a bad open secret. Suggestions, experience, and test cases for avoiding bad situations are ignored if they don’t come from management. The preference for hiring outside consultants shows leadership does not trust their current staff. I’m sad that this once great company with so much potential has had to endure the constant blunders of the current executives. Until the CEO and CDO are removed, the company will not get better.

    Pros

    Full Benefits - On-Site Gym - Great Executive Leadership

    Cons

    Terrible Management - The leadership in Customer Service has lost all motivation to strive for greatness alongside their reps. Be careful when placing requests for vacation time, as the management and senior members of the company will have 1st pick on the calendar. This leaves lower-level reps with very few options throughout each quarter and fiscal year to select time to vacation with family. Opportunity to "Move-Up" internally is touted very heavily throughout training process but normally takes 2-5 years of hard/dedicated work to rank higher than the lowest level of customer service. Overall I'd say their customer service position is well-suited for a High School senior looking to make "big money" at $12.00/hour.

    Pros

    I have recently learned how much harder it is to seek out work when you are not just looking for a paycheck. It is insane how much you can tell by a company just in the way their interviews are conducted. I went through several interviews and not one of them can come close in comparison to the outstanding experience I had doing so through BodyBuilding.com. Some jobs take weeks to even get back to you! This company contacted me within 24 hours and that is only the beginning. Through the phone interview process, the interviewer did an outstanding job of making it feel like a conversation rather than a questionnaire. I can’t thank her enough for making it personable so I could comfortably answer each question in a way that wasn't written out or scripted. This left an impression that would keep me loyal to this company whether they offered me a position or not! The face to face interview was just as comfortable as the one conducted through the phone. I felt like I could talk to them as if I had known these amazing induvial for years. The setting it was conducted in was comfortable and there wasn’t a moment in the process where I felt panicked from intimidation. One short tour made me devoted to becoming employed by them because the vibes were like nothing I had ever felt being in a workplace. Everyone easily displayed signs of pure enjoyment for the work they were doing and there were no signs of discontent! I cannot wait to share more as I join this environment in a few short weeks! Thank you so much!

    Cons

    NONE! I have not witnessed anything negative about this great association!

    I have been working at Bodybuilding.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I left Bodybuilding.com to attend grad school and I found myself coming back after graduating because of: * great benefits (high 401K match, great medical/dental) * awesome people (encouraging, growth-minded, like family) * flexibility (no set clock in/out times, a couple remote days/week) * FTO available immediately (not accrued) * seeing how our company is literally changing peoples' lives for the better! * Focus on development (person and professional)

    Cons

    Now we share the building with the building owners and parking has been more difficult because of that. That's literally the only thing I can think of.
