    I worked at The Body Shop

    Pros

    -great coworkers -great company values -very generous with staff samples

    Cons

    -little communication between upper management and stores -little room for growth (at least in my district, the manager seems to prefer to hire out as oppose to promoting from within)

    Advice to Management

    -get a better training program for management -create some sort of handbook where all the company's policies and rules are clearly outlined. Then stick to that handbook
