    I have been working at The Body Shop

    Pros

    The products are great, easy to sell and you can stand behind their quality. When you have a good team everything runs smoothly and it's a fun environment. They do alot of contests as incentive, and there is a bonus structure for full time employees.

    Cons

    No career advancement, and the distort manager for the greater phildelphia area is disliked by all shops in the district due to malicious attitude and severe favoritism, as well as a very condescending nature. Very poor pay for all positions.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more personal interest in your higher and peer management. Listen to calls to HR. Pay employees better.

    I worked at The Body Shop

    Pros

    Generous (40%) discount on merchandise along with free make-up when you start and a year after your start date. The products are great but you get limited training.

    Cons

    They recently changed the positions and reduced hours for their staff. Their pay rates have also gone done significantly. For example, assistant managers used to make about 10.25 an hour, but now they are called "sales leads" and make about 8 dollars an hour. They also only get an average of 15 hours a week. It used to be 20-25 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep open communication with other team members; not just the store manager
