I have been working at The Body Shop full-time for more than a year

Pros

Encouraged to speak up and share ideas
Fantastic network of fellow managers for support and spirit-lifting!
Beautiful products, customer engagement and shop floor environment

Cons

A lot is demanded from managers and assistant managers. You'll either embrace it (expected to 'run' your business rather than turn up and set up, close down and go) or you'll buckle.
Long hours - expectation is to be present and work at least 30 minutes before and after you're rota'd (and therefore paid) for every day but this is often more.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be realistic about the working hours required of managers/assistant managers and reflect that in the weekly scheduling if you cannot reflect it in pay.

    I have been working at The Body Shop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its great to be a part of a company that does so much to give back. They help people all over the world with the sales of their products and campaigns.

    Cons

    They pay a lot less than the same position with other companies. Management tends to put you on eggshells, demanding that you meet your goals without giving you the tools to achieve them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should trust your shop managers more. Allow them to throw their own events and network through social networks. Also, if you paid your employees a comparable rate to other companies, you'd have a lot less turnover.
