    I worked at Body Central full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the clothes and one on one sales aspect. The product was consistent and always exciting to see what came out next! The customers were so nice becuase the prices were as good as the clothes, AWESOME! I had a great overall experience and wished to further my career there. Thank you for allowing me to move to the Arrowhead location to further my career and try to help keep the Arrowhead Mall location open.

    Cons

    The employees can be immature and cliquey. The store closed in 2008 in the PVMALL and Arrowhead Mall locations. I wish they were still open.

    Advice to Management

    I had the best Manager at the time i was an assistant. She knew who to give a chance and who deserved it. Thanks for giving me a chance, always believing in me and encouraging me to move into management and take on higher roles that will help me to pass on the inspiration.

    Pros

    pay, discount, care about the customer

    Cons

    as a business major there was plenty of ways the company could of cut cost . Payroll , Inventory, and marketing wise. There downfall was when they tried to change there styles to late . When the company started going down they should of got new buyers and teamed up with a finance manager who could of helped them cut major cost. I know in my district they had a store that didn't even hit 1m in sales and the rent was super high. they should of went though the stores and cut the ones that were not hitting the profit margin instead of firing store manager after store manager. It was a good company and I think it was ruined by the people in corporate
