Pros

The company was founded on great values and it works with various organizations that promote human rights. Many ingredients in their product are natural and community trade.

Cons

The body shop is a great place to work. I'm just not sure that their is much position mobility in the sense of promotions to a higher level. I don't think it is possible to make a career at the Body Shop.

Advice to Management

I understand that the body shop is now under new management since I last worked there and I do not know anything about them. I just hope they are keeping up the mission of the company.

    Pros

    - 40% Discount on products
    - Decent Benefits ( Includes: dental, tuition reimbursement, quarterly bonus, etc)
    - If your DSM is knowledgeable, you receive an unbelievable training experience, a great level of communication ( future promotions, upcoming changes, available positions in upper management, etc. ), communication between other store managers in your district ( often discussed trading employees to create a better fit, advice on problems in store, etc.)
    - An achievable bonus

    Cons

    - A DSM can make or break the experience.

    -HR follow through is not consistent. Meaning if you have a new hire/w2/etc. problem prepare to be on the phone for days, even weeks

    - Your salary is pretty low. When I say low I mean high 20k - low 30k on average for store managers, 9-12 an hr for full time assistant managers, 8-9 an hr for part time managers, and minimum wage for sales associates. Its hard to get the sales team that the company expects when the pay isn't very appealing.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the area manager position. Some stores need more guidance than others and a DSM may not be able to provide ( distance, time, etc).

    Hire DSMs that know what they are doing. Whether promoting from within or bringing in someone from the outside, a DSM that is rude, clueless, or not encouraging can make your company lose some of its best employees. ( MY District lost 5 amazing store managers)
