Seasonal with no room for growth
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON27 January 2019
-Seasonal for the company twice and there were always issues with the managers putting people on schedule for times they could not work
-Hires late in the season and does not give comprehensive training to seasonal staff in order for them to do their job
-May be a good place to start off in sales but you will not stick around past seasonal position as they do not keep people on
-Employee discount is deep if you love body shop products
-Spend the whole shift in one zone which is cramped so when people do not want your help, you have nowhere to go and must awkwardly stand around them

A fun place to work
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB26 October 2018
I enjoyed working here. I learned that the majority of the ingredients in their products are natural and they don't use a lot of chemical preservatives. I enjoyed being able to help customers find what they were looking for. The hardest part of the job was getting to know where all the products were in such a short period of time.
The management team was absolutely amazing and they were very caring towards their employees.
Pros
working with some amazing people

manager is rude
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 May 2018
It smelled really good and I liked how they were against animal cruelty. The discount was 50 percent off which was really convenient. the other sales associates were really nice, unlike the male manager.
Cons
unpaid lunch

good for money and reasonable work times
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON6 March 2018
It's an alright place if you like standing there and doing nothing but talking. It's not really a place I would prefer if you like to move around a lot.

Great place to work.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cookstown, ON25 January 2018
Although a seasonal hire, this job was very nice, one of the better sales jobs out there. The hours were long at times, but such is the issue with Christmas holidays and retail. But overall it was fun and rewarding.
Pros
paid lunch break, tidy environment, good team.
Cons
Christmas time

Great Company! Poor manager!
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB28 December 2017
Great Company. I love the idea of enriching and helping the lives of others. Excellent products I will continue to buy The BodyShop products.
Manager on the other hand, picks favourites, doesn't inform staff of changes to schedule and doesn't follow availability form. Catty environment. 5 hours shifts with no breaks.
Pros
The small sample goody bag.
Cons
No hours
