Pros: great coworkers, fun, lively environment, great products, great hours, works around your schedule, room for advancement
Cons: working holidays, long hours, rude customers, not a very good work/life balance
Bath and Body works is such a fun job. I loved the products and still use them today! I was definitely passionate about selling because I knew how great our products were, it made it just too easy! Being a manager was fantastic. The only downside was that I was a student and I could not devote my life to the store. I was working hard, long hours and barely had time for studying at all. Bath and Body works is a wonderful place for someone looking for a solid, long-term position and a place to grow and advance. I did that, and I could have gone further in my career there but my heart's desire was to work in a lab and to finish my degree. Bath and Body works gives you all the tools you need to be great, they are constantly encouraging. They work around your schedule which made it ideal for me as a student until it became too much as a manager. If you are a hard worker you will never worry about having too few hours! Because it is retail, working Holidays was not that great, and impossible to get off, especially as a manager. I still refer to the store as "we", it was definitely a home away from home!
