Shop Floor Assistant/ Stock Assistant (Former Employee), Kingston upon Hull, ENGJuly 8, 2014
Pros: breaks
Cons: wasn't paid (work experience)
Although I wasn't at Body Shop for long I did enjoy my time there as I gained the knowledge of how retail works, I learned how to interact with customers etc. Some of my co-workers are really friendly and happy to teach me the ways of the shop. The hardest part of my time at Body Shop was probably trying to get passing people to try out products, most – more... of the time you are ignored but you have to have the confidence to approach people and I gained this confidence. – less

interaction and social nature of position
Shop Manager (Former Employee), Swords, DublinJune 19, 2014
Pros: special offers, promotions
Very positive environment and learning skills to interact with customers. Co-workers were very friendly and we all worked as a team. A part of the job I didn't like was when certain members staff would speak and gossip about another member of staff which is behaviour I do not agree with, a positive atmosphere is important to the shop and to customers. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job for me was being helpful to customers and knowing that they got good customer service. – less

Seasonal Stock Associate (Former Employee), Boston, MAJune 18, 2014
Pros: positive work environment .
Cons: there wasn't any 9-5 shifts
A typical day at the body shop was very productive. as a stock associate, I checked in with management about shipping and products that needed to be displayed immediately. There was always great communication between myself and management. My co-workers were friendly and willing to help if needed. The hardest part of my job was finding a way to make – more... space for over stock, But in the end I learned how. I really enjoyed learning about the products and where they came from. – less

Amazing products & ahead of the curve on "going Green"
Assistant Shop Manager (Former Employee), Palo Alto, CAJune 18, 2014
The Body Shop was a fantastic intro to the retail & beauty industry. They have all kinds of wonderful products & amazing core values which is very admirable. I learned everything from proper makeup application to the correct way to diagnose some ones skin care needs. Management team were several at a time. A good thing is we were always learning. The – more... most difficult part of the job was if I were managing the store alone at some point, it was hard to provide good customer service to each customer if it were more than 3 in the store. – less

Store Manager (Former Employee), INJune 14, 2014
Pros: employee discount
Cons: lack of training
I loved working this position, however, for the store management positions the upper level managers, district managers specifically do not give the required training for the store level management to be successful.

Pros: got to play with makeup and lotions :)
Great company to work for. Love what they stand for and their mission. The staff are very well trained on product and selling pitches which makes your job a little easier.

fun place to work with
Assistant Manager, Sales Associate (Former Employee), Holyoke, MAJune 5, 2014
Pros: play with make up all day
Cons: no flexibility
there wasn't usually a typical day it could vary from opening and closing the store, to customer service, make over appointments, sales, shipment, going over daily sales goals, floor sets, and so on. I learned a lot about what it takes to run a store. From the sales numbers we need to meet, to ordering supplies needed, management skills in training, – more... and many other things as well. Management wasn't as stable as I would have liked the manager would often leave in less than a year. The hardest part of the job was that people with no flexibility would be hired making it hard to make the schedule fair. The most enjoyable part was I loved the company and what they stood for. – less
