    I have been working at The Body Shop part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun store, very laid back, products are good quality and sell themselves . Everyone i work with is very nice and its a non-competitive atmosphere. Management is understanding and friendly and look forward to working with my bosses. Our district manager is very nice as well and is fun to have visit.

    Cons

    Their standards and approach to customer service is sub-par. They expect you to practically hound a customer who might be "Just looking" and they tend to walk out when try to "connect" with them. Being forced to sell the cards is another thing, a lot of people don't want to pay for a rewards program.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe dial down a little on how hard you want you associates to press on a customer. Building a basket is one thing, but don't overwhelm someone.
