I have been working at Bath & Body Works

Pros

One of the reasons to work at Bath and Body Works is the selection of wonderful products that I personally use and believe in.

Cons

The major downside in my position is the retail schedule ( ie. working nights, weekends, holidays,etc.).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would love to see a more fair and competitive salary for the Store Managers ( big discrepencies within the same area for store mangement).

    I worked at Bath & Body Works

    Pros

    Ability to interact with customers and work at your own pace. Always busy, time will go by fast, friendly staff.

    Cons

    Structured sales tactics, scheduling system is the worst. Dress code for males too strict as far as colors of slacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to feedback from associates, reworking scheduling system, better pay for employees, more organized form of storage and distribution of product.
