    I worked at The Body Shop full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow, decent pay, benefits and 401k, they try to promote from within, fun team work environment, customers are generally fiercly loyal.

    Cons

    No matter if you met all your personal goals if the store did not you can not get an excellent review and a decent raise, always had to work a closing shift and one weekend day a week even being the store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize conference call times, make sure that it's not the same information regurgitated weekly so that managers value the calls instead of dreading them as a huge waste of time.
