    I worked at The Body Shop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Innovative and quality products to sell, really loved carrying out demonstrations on the customers and watching their faces as they realised they had found a wonder product. Proud of the community trade backing the company had and the strong investment they had in community projects, as founded by Dame Anita Roddick. Commited to their values and core beliefs.

Perhaps more family days awarded to the management team who do not often get chance to take weekends off, particularly those who would benefit from this. Training given to Assitant managers to allow them to control the store at peaks weekend times would perhaps allow managers to take days...
