Management often fought with each other over little things, and were fake to each other.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to connect with associates
    Discount on full price merch
    Holiday hours for some people
    Gratis and corporate associate appreciation
    Wonderful customers

    Cons

    Favoritism in stores, if your management team doesn't like you, you don't get hours, can't advance with the company, or get transferred to a less hostile store.
    You're expected to drop everything and come in, if you have to miss a shift due to unforeseen issues, the backlash is severe.
    Yearly reviews do not match an increase in cost of living.
    Associates aren't permitted to take breaks or leave the floor to go to the bathroom, while managers take up to two hours and won't cover the sales floor.
    Backlash from management on pursuing outside opportunities.
    Too many HR and Labor Board violations to list.

    If it weren't for several wonderful people I met, I wish I had never taken this job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what is going on in your stores! Back up your associates, not managers, they're the people you really depend on for sales.
