      Pros

      I have some of the best memories working in the bodyshop, I made friends for life, was giving the opportunity to progress and flexibility in working hours.

      Cons

      They do not have enough staff, as the years went by, people were not being replaced and working alone became an option which I did not enjoy. There was way too much pressure on sales consultant there.

      Pros

      You get some free products and 50% discount.

      Cons

      I was bullied by the managers, left to run the store on busy days while they chatted around the back and put under a ridiculous amount of pressure to sell as much as possible. You are even expected to sell to people who don't want to buy anything. Do NOT work here if you care about your mental health as mine is now in pieces thanks to this place. The managers and supervisors treat their staff like filth. PLEASE AVOID!
