I worked at Bath & Body Works part-time (more than a year)

Pros

30% discount (including sister stores Victorias Secret, Henri Bendel); fairly easy to pick up on product knowledge; 9/10 customers are easy to make happy; you get to wear jeans to work (win!); yearly raises (or maybe that was just me); employee gratis; fellow associates usually are like a second family (this may only be for smaller stores)

Cons

floorsets/marketing can be a nightmare; hard to get promoted within company unless you have the right management; holiday hiring seems to be more about how many people need to be hired than the quality of people, so regular employees wind up picking up the mess holiday help makes; "call-in" shifts; no stability with hours (will have 18 one week and 3 the next)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

have more advancement opportunities available for those who work for the company for years rather than just hiring new people; focus on hiring quality employees for seasonal positions rather than quantity
