Welcome to NBTY James! Land of the liars. We also were told we had nothing to worry about shortly after NBTY bought Solgar. Shortly thereafter, the layoffs began (in 2006) and have been happening since. It was called "Corporate Restructuring" also known as a "Corporate Buottf...ing" Good luck to you.

NBTY stands for "No Body Tells You". Everything is secret. Just do this and do that. No communication!!

NBTY does not even answer outside phone calls! company is very close to Chapter11.
They have nothing to tell you because they have been on the wrong track for a long time and it is too late to change the direction ;)
Since the IT team was blasted and they fired the CIO, company needs at least a $20M cash for new software and other upgrades, especially for the hot money control point ERP-POS, which will take at least 3-6 years to fix :)
Welcome to bankruptcy.

The company went downhill when they suspended their IT plans. CIO was a great guy, a motivator and got things done. Now they are back to their old ways of shortcutting technology and the people that work in technology.

NBTY has been sold, and that is a fact. Hopefully, the whole HR department will be replaced beginning with the Regional Director and Managers, as they are very unethical, unprofessional and not to mention unfair. I am just glad I resigned at the time I did and am very thankful that I only worked for this Co. for less than a month. I honestly hope tht this new company will get more invovled with the day to day issues in HR.
