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

    Pros

    This was a great starting point for me as an assistant store manager. I did learn a few things when I was there. Unfortunately I learned a little of bad things.

    Cons

    The downside to working their was being lied to about employment opportunities. Managers were not well trained. Managers were unethical and ghetto.

    Advice to Management

    The company closed its doors January 2014. I guess I don't have any advice to give.
