teamwork and incentives
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Paramus, NJApril 29, 2014
Working at the body shop was like being apart of a team. everyone was supportive i helping me achieve my personal goals which was the overall achievement for the goals of the teams, some days achieving personal goals lead to personal incentives such as a small gift or free lunch from the managers.

My time at The Body Shop.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), NorwichApril 24, 2014
A typical day at the Body Shop would change weekly. This would be due to the time of year, such as Christmas where the shop floor would become very busy. I learnt a lot at the body shop, which included the knowledge of make-up and skin care. My co-workers made my job even more enjoyable as I believe a friendly atmosphere is the best for great sales.

a typical day at work
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), NorwichApril 9, 2014
Pros: breaks and a fair manager
Cons: long time standing
Doors open at 9am and customers are already to step foot into the shop. Just time for a last minute check of your appearance and then put into practice all the customer service training you have received.

One moment you can behind the till, next you can be discussing products with a customer, next you might be cleaning the shop or rearranging the stock.

The – more... job is varied and all staff are professional and well trained in their approach. – less

Wonderful people to work with and fantastic customers. The hardest part of the job is getting in new business, with so many body shops in the area. Co-workers were great, and The Rear End Shop, next door, had wonderful workers and service also.

Amazing company with good expectations
Supervisor (Former Employee), SalisburyMarch 11, 2014
Pros: getting to know the new products
Cons: lack of strong team
This was a great company to work for and their values as a company are one to be admired. The day to day activities where not voiced to us but written down for us to take control of and ensure they were completed.
I learned a lot about different products, benefits and features and how to sell these in a whole new way than i had previously tried. This – more... gave me great confidence when becoming the stores colour coach and doing make-overs and training sessions for the rest of the team.
The hardest part of this job was no knowing what the stores performance was or how well we were doing towards the stores and our personal targets. – less

Productive Sales Company
Sales Representative/Customer Service (Current Employee), Anchorage, AKMarch 6, 2014
Pros: working & helping others, working with a great sales
Cons: part-time, not enough hours, work less then 4 days a week, slow
On a normal day at work I would interact with any incoming customers, demonstrating exsistant products or any new products that we are currently launching that month. Very imformative with all the products in the store.

I have learned a lot about the products that we offer, since they are more natural then other products & take part in the Community – more... Fair Trade Act.

I love all the people I work with, co-workers, and the management.
The job is pretty simple, I would say maybe the hardest part of the job would be, when I first started and I had to know each product, what they contained, and how they benefit for the customer as well as the community. My most enjoyable part of the day is, knowing that I have helped someone find the correct prouduct they were needing such as, makeup, bath & body care, accessories, skin care, mens products, a special gift for someone, home & body fragrances.

But I am currently looking for anything that can offer me more. Such as, more hours a week, work more days a week, full-time work. – less
