Reviews:

“Satisfying work, made hard by bad management policies”

The company stands for very strong and admirable values - they do no test on animals or use animal products - and this is something that matters very deeply to me. They have very good pay, benefits and discounts on their products. The products of course are some of the best in the world.

Micromanagement. The Management tries to micromanage employees far too much, leading to highly elevated stress levels on what ought to be a veyr fulfilling job. There are no commissions either. Lots of gossip between store managers.

Access to the best animal testing free products on the globe.

“Great ethos, great products, terrible marketing and promotions”

Really great products. I believe in the products we sell, happy to use them all myself – makes it much easier to sell them Working towards the good of some social projects makes it feel worthwhile as well – the work done for charities and the donations made – these are all really great Also the general ethos of care for the environment and respect for the person not just outer beauty are things I care about and appreciate working in a business that promotes this.

Tendency to keep rebranding the same products in order to bring them to market again and hope that people will buy them, but the customers are more savvy than that and won't buy as new what they've already bought heavily discounted in the sales Lots of confusing promotions on products generally with different pricing schemes that don't add up All the products are aimed at white people – which is very old-fashioned approach these days – and really missing a trick in the market Training materials do not keep up to date with the product range and it is embarrassing to try and sell something you don't have enough infor ...

The Body Shop does not understand the customers in the US. They use people we've not really heard that much about for some of their promotions and product labels, and when nobody buys them end up selling them off cheap.

“Such a nice place to work for”

Pros: If ever there was a great working atmosphere to be in, it would be this one. The products in this place are straight from heaven and the scents wafting through the air makes your day every day. The customers also love it very much. Did I mention the fantastic staff discount that every employee gets?

Cons: Some employees are not interested in taking the brand further and they are not proud of the work they do. They just see it as another day job, which is really sad because the company has lots to offer. Some staff members have to temp for quite a long while before they are offered a permanent position.

Unusual thing: Most employees stick around for up to ten years!
