Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Gresham, OR – June 24, 2016
A typical day at work usually consisted of greeting customers and helping them find items they were looking for. I worked at the cash register a lot as well. When it was slow, I would restock items or work on keeping the store clean. All the managers were really nice and really helpful if I didn't understand something. I learned a lot about making sales goals and how to properly display and show customers how to use our products. The hardest part of the job was the lack of hours. It seemed that at the location I worked at, they would over hire and then give less hours to make up. The best part of the job was working with people who are just as excited about the products in the store as I was. It makes working fun and it's nice to know we were all there to help each other. I

The managers had their favorites, never worked for long shifts, I never felt included, I didn't like working there. The customers were very picky also, if you didn't get something right than they would get mad at you and not the company.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 20, 2016
I was a Sales Associate, so I spent most of my time interacting with customers. I also spent time restocking shelves. My coworkers were very helpful and answered any questions I had. I learned a lot about retail while working here. It was a fun and friendly environment and I really enjoyed working here.
Sales Associate/Floorset Associate (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 18, 2016
I absolutely love the store, I often say they can't hire a person with a bad bone. Unfortunately it only takes two people to run a store, so hours are few and far between for floor shifts when you actually get to work with customers. And floor set hours are not fun when I was first moved to floor set we started at 5am and ended when the store opened. Thankfully it switched to close to 2am. The people are always the best, both as in your coworkers who are all very quick to be compassionate and understand if you are having a bad day. But the customers (most of them anyway) are so loyal to the brand that they love when the associates joke with them and take them on a tour of the store. The hardest parts were either the really awful customers that sometimes come into a store, or, being on the floor on a slow day. My first day was black friday and I worked the opening and the closing shifts for black friday, after that, only seeing maybe one hundred customers in five hours is excruciating. In short, if you want a fun seasonal job, this is a great place. If you want a job that you can rely on to actually provide an income consistently, look elsewhere.
Wonderful coworkers, free snacks for morning meetings
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – June 14, 2016
Managers are rude and called me a liar just because I helped people and they didn't see it so they didn't believe me. Says they are a "family" but in reality everybody hates the managers. Lead manager uses fear and threat of firing you to try and make you work harder. Will openly insult you.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Massapequa, NY – June 14, 2016
organizing shipment of new merchandise, cashier duties, cleaning and organizing the store, co-workers were all positive and fun, hardest part was floorset (re-decorating the entire store until 4am), and the most enjoyable was meeting new people and being able to be yourself.
This is a fast paced position always requiring you to be on your feet. As a key holder there can be a lot of pressure to keep the store fully functioning. The biggest issues I ran into at this position would be the drama and competitive nature associated with the position. You are responsible for maintaining selling goals per hour as well as managing other sales associates. However, you do get 30% discounts and also know when all the best sales are.
Sales Associate/Temporary Sales Lead (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – June 12, 2016
Bath and Body Works is a great and fun place to work. They balance work and home life. Management provides you with the training needed to achieve you goals given to you. You will meet fun and interesting people everyday.
I worked during the holiday time, very fast paste working to provide customers with their needs and wants. I learned how to multi-task as well as give instruction. The hardest part of the job was restocking everything while there is a rush of people at a certain time. The most enjoyable part was helping people and making suggestions of our new products so that their family could have an enjoyable holiday.
