    Former Employee - Assistant Shop Manager in Braintree, MA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Body Shop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very generous discounts/gratis product Company doesn’t test on animals/is forward about charity

    Cons

    Unreasonable/unrealistic sales goals that pit employees against each other Managers can manipulate sales goals to make themselves look better Upper management cutthroat and not understanding about ridiculous sales goals Unclear policies/quick policy changes Below average compensation Potential for extremely low hours Terrible benefits package High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the personal sales goals because all it creates is a very cutthroat environment where employees (managers) can manipulate each other. Be more realistic about sales goals. Update technology that matters to make tracking of sales simpler.
