    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at The Body Shop part-time

    Pros

    Nice discount. Easy training. Good ethos and company values. Nice amount of holiday allowance. Stores all actively connect to each other in regions and work as a big network so are very helpful. Free products. Good maternity pay. Good break time allowance. Opportunity for bonuses.

    Cons

    Customers can be difficult. Big responsibilities for team leaders which are effectively management but not paid nearly as much but still are expected to undertake the same management tasks. Hours can be long. Often small teams so store managers can be quite strict and have free reign which sometimes has not been a good thing. CC's get paid more than TL's on bank holidays when TL have to do more work.
