    I worked at The Body Shop part-time

    Pros

    Supportive environment with lots of training on an ongoing basis, and great perks (pieces of free makeup and discount on all products).

    Cons

    Having to follow the rigid processes of customer service sometimes felt a bit fake, because not all customers want the same level of service.

    I have been working at The Body Shop part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free Products- you get 5 free products when you start and this can renew 3 times a year
     Lovely Team- generally the people that work for body sshop are compassionate and kind
     Good Hours- optional longer breaks and short breaks paid. Shifts are never too late or too early
    More emphasis on the ethics of company- the company is moving away from being too business orientated and focused on being ethical. They do multiple community trade initiatives so you make a positive difference.

    Cons

    Sometimes feel pressured to bring in the money and it can be difficult
