Does The Body Shop offer relocation assistance?

Pros

50% discount + 5 free products every year If you work hard, you can always move up on the ladder, room for development Amazing product knowledge development, great training (although depends on store manager) Supporting relocation

Cons

Too strict on KPI's Sometimes will be asked to travel to another store Sometimes they cut hours Last minute change in rota (they expect you to live to work basically)

Advice to Management

PLEASE always ASK before changing rota!! Especially if it is on a short notice (eg few days before shift). We have a lift outside of work as well, we plan ahead when we get the rota at the beginning of the month so please ask if you can change our shift even if it is a few weeks later, we may have already made plans.

Does The Body Shop have a pension plan?

Pros

Pension contributions and free products.

Cons

They are too money focused for a company that 'prides' themselves in 'doing it for the customer'. Managers are too pushy with targets and don't listen to you. Baring in mind there is no commission set and no appreciation when you do hit targets. No support from the company when needing to change your days to suit your personal life. Threatened with disaplinaries when you are 1 minute late to the shop floor, but it's okay for others to be late? Very 1 sided company.

Advice to Management

Re train your managers to be compassionate

Pension contributions and free products.

What kind of career opportunities exist at The Body Shop?

Pros

Amazing product! Excellent discount! Fun work environment! Great ethics and values!

Cons

No job security, no opportunity for growth, stores shutting down left and right, you also work alone most of the time because payroll is tight. Workload is not bad except for holiday when you’re given more gift sets then you know what to do with.
