LUSH is a great company to work for; they really value their employees as people. The job itself is pretty fun - who doesn't want to play with bubbles all day! And though we were really busy during the Christmas season, I never dreaded work.

Communication is key for a successful business. The scheduling was what I found to be the hardest part of the job. We would get a week notice for our shifts.

The staff at this location were always friendly and genuinely cared about their customers and employees. The hardest part was when the holiday rush started.

Working at Lush was my first real job and it was incredible! Management was always kind and understanding when it came to my hectic school schedule. I had to miss the seasonal training day due to personal matters, and management was very accomodating. They gave me my own "private training" when I first started and got me going very quickly!
The only real "hard" part about my job was how fast I had to get going. I learned almost all products on my own and I had to do it fast because as a seasonal you are already short on time.

I was always excited to go to work. I was the youngest employee in that shop and everyone was always looking out for me, teaching me, and helping me out along the way, which made it really easy to want to come to work! Everyone was friendly and loved working together.

For a first time job, it definitely was the right choice and I was lucky I got to work at such an incredible company with incredible people!

If you are more of an introvert and do not like meeting people or find approaching people nerve racking, this job is not for you. They make you find ways to continue a conversation with customers to try to get them to buy stuff to drive sales.... there is NEVER a time where you are doing nothing. Breaks aren't even that long. However, I do support stores that are trying to make a difference in the world. So if you are outgoing, bubbly and want to feel good about where you are working, Lush is the place for you.

I have learned so much working at LUSH and have made an effort to carry out company values in my day-to-day life. The staff is extremely supportive and helpful and the shop atmosphere, although it can get very busy, is a very fun, caring, and collaborative space. You can really tell everyone enjoys working there and cares about helping both coworkers and customers.

Very good for first time retail job lots of in the job training and demos. Not a lot of drama. Good job for students as it's casual work. Not full time can be a very fun place of you have the right attitude. Management is okay and pretty laid back not up tight like some jobs

I had an incredible time with Lush as an SSA during the 2017-2018 Christmas season. I worked at Sherway, which had the best management I have ever had which enhanced the experience that much more! It can be intimidating as a person who is a bit shy, but the encouragement the management staff gives is very helpful! I was only working for the season, which is a very temporary position but worthwhile for the experience. As someone who loves Lush as a company, it was a great experience! Especially at the Sherway location!

I was an SSA and had a blast. The discount was amazing but so was the work environment. It was very fast paced but the team was so supportive. I would highly recommend this to a student who is looking for extra money to buy some Christmas treats for your family.

For the winter season, busy as it was, I really didn't feel like I was working. My job was basically to play with bubbles and rub lotion on people. Highly fragrant environment but was cool with me. A couple of my co-workers were rather snooty, but since they were either floor leader or in charge of SOMETHING important, I had to bite my tongue. I was understanding that the holidays were busy, so it wasn't awful. There were usually plenty of people on, and with how busy it could get, I wished my breaks could have been a bit longer,but all in all I can't complain! Really want to work here again!

Working at Lush was my first job and it was better than I could have ever imagined. Everyone who worked there was so sweet and really cared about what they were doing. However, it was very competitive to get hired as a core staff member, as they only kept three out of maybe fifty people. This is a job for people who are friendly, outgoing, and patient.

Pros
50% discount, positive friendly environment and staff
Cons
low wage but other wise not many at all

Happy people making happy soap (or selling happy soap). Lush is an amazing place to work. And shop. Everybody is so welcoming, and ive never had a single problem. They care about the planet, and the animals and humans that come with it. Discount is an amazing bonus too. Don't need to wear perfume, you'll smell amazing after working a shift.
Pros
Discount, great staff, great customers
Cons
Standing for hours ( as with any retail position really)
