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

    Pros

    It was fun to work with the customers, and the atmosphere was beautiful during the holidays.

    Cons

    The store I was at had lots of gossip and drama. I felt left out of the rest of the store. There was almost no time given to employees who were asked to come back from the holiday staff. I'm sure other stores have a much better culture, but not this one.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, and more understanding of your employees.


  2. "Average job for your average HS kid, not an adult trying to bring in an income"

    Pros

    Gratis - free products were always nice.

    Paid store meetings - for new products/rollouts. Not for everyone though because they weren't flexible and you basically got threatened to be fired if you couldn't make it. It worked for me, though.

    You always smelled good!

    Cons

    Immature supervisors and management
    A lot of favoritism
    Not flexible
    No commission
    No recognition
    Cash registers always crashed
    Awesome return policy for the customer - but if you processed a return you pretty much got in trouble for hurting sales for that timeframe. NOT your fault as an employee!
    You would get in trouble if you didn't BUG the living daylights out of people. If a customer said "just browsing" you had to bug them until they changed their answer. Most customers left the store after being nagged and chased around with a bottle of lotion.
