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

Pros

Starting pay was high for retail, and the discount was very generous.

Cons

Everyone in management was overly critical, and gave little to no positive feedback. They focused way too much on the negative. They would give me around 6 hours a week, then send me home half-way through a shift.

Advice to Management

Don't hire people if you don't have adequate hours for your employees. Positive reinforcement would be a nice touch too.

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

    Pros

    Can be hired on the spot with no experience whatsoever. They train you thoroughlt. They have a dresscode. They tell you whats expected of it and correct you accordingly.

    Cons

    Managers sometimes dont see eye to eye on the running of the store. Once you know what procedure each manager prefers then be flexible with adapting to their likes and all will be fine. Floor change was difficult at times because little people showed up and you would leave early in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bend a little with each other.
