    Pros

    When the company was still operational, my co-workers were fun and up beat. Easy work, but repetitive. Flexible work schedules around school.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, no pay raises or recognition. Had to do a lot of work in a little amount of time without having enough staff to do it all. Constant floor changes, ridiculous goals to achieve for that day.

    Pros

    Generous discount, flexible hours, friendly employees.

    Cons

    2 days notice to shut down business and pack up store with no severance or pto payout. Company directions were up and down all the time. Corporate management left field employees to learn and do on their own with little support. Product flow was behind, operations were old school, and very little communication or positive conversations from upper corporate management.

    Advice to Management

    You went bankrupt because you didn't make smart business decisions..... Your loyal employees deserved better than what you left them with.

    Cons

    Everything sucked about Body Central. I had 5 DM'S in 2 years. My store and Co manager sucked. Basically ran the store by myself most days....worked way too hard for a company and people who didn't appreciate it. Too bad they filed....

    To upper management, they needed to do better.
