So I've been working at VS for two or three weeks now (woo) and I'm getting the hang of the retail bidniz. Its pretty laid back and I love it and all, but at the end of the day its a cash business and even though we're told over and over we aren't here to force-sell products (and we don't), I definitely notice how we market some things. The biggest focus points in any supplement world is going to be on the multivitamins, the calcium supplements, the joint support supplements, and the fats (fish oil, etc.) Now, I sell so many multivitamins day in and day out I decided to see what was going on. I got a recommendation from a colleague and tried one. Its been roughly three weeks (like 17 days or some crap) and I have to say I feel pretty decent.
Now, I can't attribute anything to the pill because my activity level has just been high due to loads of work - but whats the consensus on multis around here? I know, loads of people just throw their hands up and say "we're all over medicated, you just pee it out, blah blah blah" and I agreed until recently - CVS brand stuff (Centrum, etc) may indeed just be total trash and I very strongly think that may be the case. But, some of our food-derived multis seem like they're less worthless and I'm really curious if all our educated TMen think ALL multis are trash or if they do indeed have a place in a supplemental regimen.
tl;dr your opinion on multis
(For the record, the multi I started is a 3-a-day)
