    Pros

    Great management. Great products. Great company.

    They’re not doing great in the US so 3 stores closed down in the area and the one I was working for moved location. Management changed and was not as good.

    I worked at The Body Shop full-time

    Pros

    great work life balance, plenty of parties throughout the year

    Cons

    terrible pay, upper management makes poor decisions, everyone is a temp, low pay for workers so you can get everyone from Henderson who wash out after a few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Replace upper management at the warehouse, they were there when building was closing and have the wrong mindset. Also do more to increase the brand image, no one knows who we are or what we do

    Pros

    The companies ethics and values. The products are also amazing.

    Cons

    The pay, competitive work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    I would stop with the personal sales goals because it create unnecessary tension between coworkers. There is also no need for personal goals because you do not reward us based on them. You only reward overall store sales goal.
