    Truly believe in delivering the true customer experience! Always working on improving the products as well as constant coaching to the staff!

    There may be some nights during floorset where you don't get out til early morning hours, which is not fun.

    I have been working at Bath & Body Works part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free product, recent hourly rate raise.

    Cons

    Call in shifts or shift extensions you're expected to work even though they are not guaranteed

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider call in shifts for sales associates and schedule to the needs of your business. Then ASK (don't TELL) sales associates if they can stay later/come in earlier or work a shift. If you have a sizable enough staff you should have plenty willing to work.

    Pros

    Great company, competitive pay and benefits. Good work/life balance. Great store panagement to work with. I really enjoyed my time with them.

    Cons

    Metrics still need to be worked on, the customer count method is skewing the conversion rate results negatively for the employees during certain hours and days when family shopping is more prevalent.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are aware of the issues and are working on them.

    Pros

    Very organized company. Great with giving stores what they need to succeed. Very easy flexible payroll system. Was able to add hours to payroll as the business needed.

    Cons

    Very late night floorsets. Every Sunday the store needed to be changed around and it took a very long time with very intricate displays. Floor sets could go on until 2 or 3 in the morning. Call in shifts! Every shift needed a call in shift and employees would get very frustrated with those.
