    I worked at The Body Shop part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    An ethical company to work for which have many campaigns for you to be a part of and you get to try all the new products for free

    Cons

    No cash bonus unless you are a member os management
    Normally a small team as you may just ha e 5 to 7 people working in the store which could make finding cover for shifts difficult

    Customer Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Body Shop (London, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a call the next day asking to come in for an interview. Interview is pretty easy, I started on the shop floor, and was asked to stay by front and meet and greet customers. As long as you interact with the customers and don't just stand around, you'll be fine. Then after about 20/30 minutes, I went down for an interview which was pretty informal, as long as you come across as friendly and excited to work for them, it's pretty easy.
