    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Best manager ever in the Birkenhead branch, a respectful leader we look up to and the majority of the team was such a pleasure to work with. Respect each team member, easy to get along, very patient and acknowledge the team for their effort and achievement, I definitely learned a lot during my 20 months in here boosted my confident During my time here some staff here whether cc or scc, if they wish to progress in retail they had promotions to team leaders, assistant manager, and manager in another store. I can definitely see the company is very supportive of helping you progress higher. Often receive free products when a new product launches, its to encourage staff to try so they know how to explain to the customer. 50% staff discount, sometimes even discount on sale product

    Cons

    there was only one staff which was also a CC but likes to boss people around
