    I worked at The Body Shop

    Pros

    - The Body Shop's ethics are really good (enrich not exploit, no animal testing) - Employee discount - Good products - Good pay (especially for under 18s)

    Cons

    - I was a part-time member of staff on an 8 hour contract, however I was constantly asked to work overtime despite being a full-time student - Staff have to be VERY knowledgeable about the products and there is a lot of pressure to know all of the ingredients, benefits, which person will benefit from each product etc. - Pressure to achieve targets - A lot of time has to be spent doing role play and there is a lot of pressure to sell products

    I have been working at The Body Shop full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The values of the company are simply amazing. They're always investing in their people to make them feel fulfilled

    Cons

    It is still retail so you get all the bad with retail. It's a smaller companies so sometimes it's very stressful with so many moving pieces in your job. In some markets there is very little room to advance
