    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free products, training to be a skincare or makeup expert, and they used to have amazing discounts when part of the Loreal Group. Great cultures, values and a genuinely good green company to work for.

    Cons

    Management are always unfair, targets like getting customers to sign up to membership cards are very unrealistic and you get told off if you fail.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees.

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

    Pros

    - easy to pick up key skills that are important in the workplace in general - free products and 50% discount

    Cons

    - Extremely repetitive - part time role yet feels full time as they want you to be flexible and available all the time but you don’t get full time hours - All other roles get cash bonuses, but customer Consultants just get product even though they’re the ones on the shop floor selling product and hitting targets - not much room for progression

    I have been working at The Body Shop part-time for 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 community trade initiatives so you make a positive difference.

    Sometimes feel pressured to bring in the money and it can be difficult
