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

Pros

The lights and music and the regulars who just wanted to be noisy. They were used to the drama on the sales floor and would come in for a dose and maybe a dress to wear to the club. Heeyyy! lol.

Cons

The Cons: The staff, store management (that hires the staff), district management (who was once a staff member who backstabbed her way to That position), and the regional management, who was the Original Gangster. If you like drama for the floor to the roof, don't let them fool you into thinking that it doesn't exist at BC. This place is Infested! They PREY on cute, mindless Young girls. You start at the age of 16 as a cashier. If you can take the heat And dish it out, be puppeted by management, you'll be on you way to Assistant Manager by 17, fired/ re-hired or promoted to a Co-Manager by 17 1/2, and a Store Manager by 20. If you're fortunate enough to last that long, then you've seen the entire store staff change at least 5 times. And if you're THAT dedicated, then you'll be a District Manager by 22. You'll be able to look back on how far you've come. and calculate how you're going to keep you managers in competition with on another, and keep your secrets very hidden. My DM was led out in handcuffs. Her secret is no longer safe.

Advice to Management

Just shut everyone down and start over.

    Pros

    Great discount and cute clothes

    Cons

    Have to sell a certain dollar amount per sale as well as a certain number of items or you could be written up

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on store managers who punch their employees out when they are still working. Also on managers who do not pay their employees for meetings! The DM in my district allowed m previous manager to stay employed with the company even after she did all the above and told people that her "assistant managers were retarded.
