I have been working at The Body Shop full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great product, teaches you how to provide great customer service, great company values, small company in which growth is possible.

Cons

Company was going through a difficult growth period in which many managers were let go during my tenure. It seemed saving money was the ultimate goal at the end of the day.

Advice to Management

Ive heard since my departure the company has rebounded and really turned a corner. I just only wish this was the case while i was still there.

    Pros

    It was fun but they don't do a lot to set themselves a part from Bath & Body Works. So they a little unknown to customers. District Manager was fantastic and was never too good to pitch in and do what she could to help out in any of her stores.

    Cons

    Upper management was a waste. They went through so many regionals and people in corporate they were not well ran in terms of a specific company structure with people that had stayed and made a career for themselves with the company. When I was there they had no president, it was ran by a Vice president.

    Advice to Management

    Be a part of the company your running. Show that you care about what your doing like Anita did when she started it!
