    I have been working at The Body Shop part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Products- you get 5 free products when you start and this can renew 3 times a year Lovely Team- generally the people that work for body sshop are compassionate and kind Good Hours- optional longer breaks and short breaks paid. Shifts are never too late or too early More emphasis on the ethics of company- the company is moving away from being too business orientated and focused on being ethical. They do multiple...

      Pros

      The only pros that this company has is the staff discount.

      Cons

      I was hired as a team, however i was mislead and informed wrong information about my salary and was never paid correctly, I was also dismissed by my manager and refused to get statutory sick pay which is a government scheme ,however when I contacted HR ,they told me that I'm eligible for it and I had to sort it myself. Lazy assistant manager that only came to work in the absent of the manager to be on her phone talking...

      Advice to Management

      To do their job probably and train their employees rather than letting them do whatever they want.

      I worked at The Body Shop

      Pros

      Good staff discount and flexible schedule. The company started off with good values and tries to maintain values but it doesn't apply within the retail storefront. Employees feels exploited. Once in a while, free staff sample for learning new products.

      Cons

      Prefers to hire externally rather than promote within. Low balls your pay. Extremely high expectation and goals but provide little support and resources to reach goal. Even if you work hard and do beyond your role, your chance of promotion is still slim because they always look for external hires first. You never get promoted; always have to interview to move up. Employees are overworked; expected to do more than their...

      Advice to Management

      I've seen so many who have been with the company for years leave because making goal is an expectation rather than celebration. Employees are unhappy because the base pay is so low while they're expected to do so much. No reward, no promotion, no raise. If anything, only 1/5 employees who do get a raise/promotion.

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

      Pros

      Great discount at 50% off. Dental and Medical benefits for team leaders and management. Community Fair Trade is cool to be a part of.

      Cons

      Wage increases are extremely small and it is difficult to consistently get 40 hours a week unless you are a salaried manager

      Advice to Management

      Care about your staff. Attempt to hang onto good employees
