    Flexible hours

    30% employee discount

    Easy to contact HR department

    Pros

    Amazing team work and communication, always room to improve and managers give lots of tips on how to be better at your job. If you are good at your job, you will get the hours and pay you need. You can’t expect to work 30 hours a week if you don’t add something to the team. I’ve seen people come in and expect more but give nothing in return. And gratis is so much fun to receive!!

    Cons

    Customers can be rude sometimes, but you have to think as if they are always right. Making sure that they leave happy is the priority and it can be very difficult but a good retail associate will be able to adapt and do the job correctly!

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

    Pros

    Good pay for a basic retail job; friendly coworkers; hours were consistently available

    Cons

    Holidays (mid-November to mid-January) are awful and asking time off during that time was a no-go

    Advice to Management

    Take a deep breath and treat your long term employees like they've been there longer than a seasonal employee. I was there for almost one and a half years and one of my assistant managers treated me like every day was my first day.

    Pros

    Good employee discount
    Co-workers are really nice

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors are terrible at telling everyone what needs to be done. They expect you to know what to do, which is impossible since they don't train you.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees before putting them onto the sales floor/ behind the register.
