Very nice people to work with, great environment, always positive moods!
Cashier and Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 12 November 2017
I have learned a lot about getting to know customers needs and finding out what they are in for. I love how people are easy to get along with and is a very strong team. Everybody works together! The most enjoyable part is helping customers and showing them the different products.
Great work environment, friendly staff
Short hours (generally 3 hour shifts), often cut employees hours without notice.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 21 September 2017
working at bath and body works has not many benefits your hours are based on how many sales you make on your shift during christmas youre expected to work about 60 hours a week which is good for money but the hours arent stable you can get sent home early if the daily goal is not met and hours get cut often but the staff is very friendly
The employees, customers and work environment is incredible. Every day at Bath & Body Works is full of fun times and professional experiences. Customer satisfaction and building long-term relationships is a goal that keeps the team and customers happy!

Cashier, Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 September 2017
I love Bath & Body Works, both as a customer and as an employee! The management in my location makes work so much more enjoyable, and they accept that we all have rough times in our lives and therefore do not hold any of our bad days against us. My coworkers are just as happy as I am, and we all get along amazingly! They are also very flexible in hours!
Great place to work for some extra income as a seasonal
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 5 September 2017
Worked at B&BW as a seasonal associate, they were very accommodating of my schedule with my second job, good communication between management, lots of hours available and long shifts, good if you really want to work.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 23 August 2017
There is absolutely no way to succeed with this company. Every time you feel organized enough to execute a plan, they completely change everything. They are run by an American overhead which has absolutely no idea how the Canadian market is run. They do not care about your opinions at head office even though you are the one who is dealing with the customers. They provide zero product training so you are basically making it up as you go.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 15 August 2017
Being there wall all around a wonderful place to work. Being a cashier there was great for money management, the management there were outstanding individuals that kept us motivated and there wasn't one day i didn't enjoy going to work.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 15 August 2017
I worked with BBW for 3 years and was under awful management. Aside from the location I worked at in particular, the overall salary, benefits and other offers from BBW were horrendous. I worked there full time (40 plus hours per week) and never received benefits. I was originally hired on as part time, but for whatever reason, even with eventually becoming full time i never received any recognition for over working myself. Leaving BBW was the best decision I've ever made!
CASHIER / STOCK / SALES (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 18 July 2017
Nice people to work with, but there would be times that I would get passed over for lunch breaks. I would ask for a lunch break after a while and be told that I didn't have one scheduled even though sometimes my on-call would be activated. Staff would not show up.
Competitive sales environment without steady hours
Sales Leader (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 July 2017
I haven't been here very long but the politics and management of this company is very strange to me. Hours are not consistent even for supervisors. No benefits until you become an ASM or SM. Very competitive work environment especially on slow days when there aren't enough sales to go around. Constant promo and visual changes to the store are labour intensive and take away from your ability to make sales.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 July 2017
A variety of things were learned from this job experience. willing to teach and train you. You will re-stock, cashier, store facing, arranging, customer service, customer satisfaction...many different experiences at this store.
Busy workplace but exciting environment to be a part of
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 July 2017
Bath and Body Works is a very fun and exciting workplace to be a part of and you're constantly surrounded by happy and enthusiastic people which is what makes it so enjoyable. However, advancement opportunities are not very present until a manager favors one employee among the rest which does not give a fair chance for everyone else. Also, the pay was at the minimum until you do something about it like request a higher pay. If they don't appreciate what you do for the store, you won't get a raise.
I love working at Bath & Body Works, however, the store rarely provides shifts longer than 3 hours to the Sales Associates. The lack of longer shifts has caused many Associates to leave, as they would come in 5 times a week, to only work a total of 15 hours a week.
