    I have been working at The Body Shop

    Pros

    'My Perks' which gives you benefits such as life insurance, 'LOVE' money that you can use for gym memberships or a massage or many other things for your wellbeing, upto 60% off L'Oreal and companies owned by L'Oreal, 50% off Body Shop products in store, if you achieve above your monthly sales target you can get upto £40 worth free bonus or 25% pay bonus for managers. In general my colleagues are very supportive and we get along very well, as a whole we are treated well by the company and the wage is above minimum even for part-time sales advisors.

    Cons

    There can be too much pressure for individual employees to achieve certain targets such as an 'average transaction value' especially when you have tried everything, some days customers just do not want to spend as much money and you can't force them. Generally is an excellent company to work for but occasionally managers, regional managers etc. can lose touch with what it is like at the bottom of the ladder and they have to realise that a lot of the time it is just as hard work dealing with customers daily and new promotions, offers, and constant training and paper work to do.

    I worked at The Body Shop part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good product you feel good about selling. Good company message.

    Cons

    Management is just like any other retail store. My manager was great, but those above her lead to the same old problems with schedules, reduced hours and increased demand of employees.
