    Great products, easy to sell. Very flexible hours .

    Be honest when you hire your employees and let them know how many hours they can count on.

    I have been working at Bath & Body Works part-time

    Pros

    very flexible and understanding if you need a day off. I love the work environment, it is all girls at the one that i work at and they are amazing. I got hired very fast and my managers are great. even when you have been there for awhile, they are still understanding if you mess something up or you forget something on the register.

    Cons

    havent came across any yet. Like i said in the pros, this is a great place to work. I love it! i would definitely recommend this place if people are looking for a job.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great job if you are a student, everyone was very nice, lots of free product, discounts

    Cons

    If you are looking for full-time, career type job you can't survive as an associate, need to move up to a manager's position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great work environment, talented people, great structure and opportunity to learn and grow

    Cons

    I loved working for them but despite their claims of competitive pay they are on the low end of the spectrum. You will work at a full level above your title and get paid on the low end of your title. I started at an entry level, left at a director level and literally double my salary within 3 years of leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting from within is great just don't discount the value of outside talent

    Pros

    The company. Great place to work for that appreciates their people.

    Cons

    High expectations can be a con for some. If you are not truly interested in hard working this is not the place for you.

    Pros

    Great environment, great benefits, a lot of vacation time. The staff was very close everyone got along very well. Holiday was always crazy and went fast.

    Cons

    Work life balance, as with any retail management position you need to be available when you are off the clock

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs additional time (not taken from productive hours) through out the week to complete their DOR's

    I have been working at Bath & Body Works (more than an year)

    Pros

    30% discount. Good work environment. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Hours are very sporadic. Pay is very low. It's mandatory to work on Black Friday. Hours for floorset can go way over than what you intend (I worked a 17 hour shift with NO meal break before).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More benefits would be better. Pet and car insurance is constantly discussed, but nothing about health. Would be nice to be able to combine the discount with in-store deals. Floorsets should be more frequent if they are going to take ages and ages to complete.
