    Pros

    Love the people I work with, managers are awesome, most customers are super nice, easy to learn and grow. Super flexible.

    Cons

    Hours can get cut if they don’t have the payroll.
    Around non-holiday time it’s hard to get very many hours, if any.
    Also, being around so many scents can lead to headaches- often.
    Managers are the only people who can get full time hours.

    Pros

    Bath & Body Works is my first job ever. The people are very nice and easy to work with. If you enjoy being a perfectionist, I HIGHLY recommend this job for you. A normal day at Bath & Body Works includes organizing and perfecting everything on the shelves when you're not helping customers shop. The benefits are really great, with the normal discount being 30% off a normally priced purchase.

    Cons

    The work/life balance can be a bit difficult at times. Also, please note that hours can be anywhere from as early as 6 AM to as late as 12 AM.

    Advice to Management

    Put less pressure on your associates to meet hourly goals. We don't always have control over how much the customers buy before they leave the store.

    Pros

    - money good, if you like working long hours during busy times
    - gratis gratis gratis, you get free stuff every month from what the company chooses

    Cons

    - the amount of force that they put on selling is ridiculous

    Advice to Management

    Be more caring to associates
