    I worked at Body Central full-time

    Pros

    Was a good environment if you were capable in your capacity, flexible hours and low stress.

    Cons

    Well, the company closed it's doors after 40 years so that falls into the con category.

    Advice to Management

    Better luck next time, try to not run the company into the ground.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Body Central part-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
