    Pros

    Bath and Body Works usually has a great staff and management. The stores are always cute and up-beat. Everyone that usually works here love the job and are committed to the stores success.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are that in all of their stores I've worked at, the back (storage) is really cramped and seems like a hazard. Also, the floor-sets are a pain that we have to get it all done in one night. We could be there from 6pm-4am trying to reorganize the store and bring out new products. That's hard on full-time students with class the next morning at 8am.

    Advice to Management

    Great store and I love that we got to practice with each other on how to treat and speak to the customers. The meetings were always really fun.


  2. Great company to work for!

    Pros

    Smells good! Fun place to work and make friends.

    Cons

    Little room to grow, bosses are usually over zealous and take their job too seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Put less pressure on specific sales leads to encourage group performance. Focus on promoting sales and coupons to ultimately increase sales.

    Pros

    Great benefits for full time employees Great pay for part time sales Great discounts

    Cons

    It's retail No weekends off Holidays are long

    Advice to Management

    My advice to corporate is come to a real store to see just how long it takes for preparing and executing a floor set. You have to take into account new employees, floor coverage the day of and the day after.
