Store Associate (Former Employee) – Richardson, TX – May 22, 2017
Was hired on as a seasonal employee and not retained after the holidays. Work was busy and engaging, and organized the stock room during my time there. Main complaint was most of my shifts were called in last minute, instead of being scheduled.
Selling product is the mission and goal. Learn to be an good communicator with the customers. Loved my bosses. They grind and struggled with us. No one was above the work. Hardest part was keeping up with the tempo. Things and people can be moving so fast you have to be mindful of the flow.
Customer Service/Floor Associate (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 22, 2017
For a school kid who doesn't need much hours. They hire to much staff for one store and then give out little hours. That pay check is nothing when you have bills to pay and mouths to feed. I work there. Long time ago so hopefully it's better now.The staff is friendly the store is very clean it's a good atmosphere.
Store Associate (Former Employee) – Braintree, MA – May 22, 2017
I took this job as a seasonal position and it was a lot to keep up with. My first shift was 8 hours on Black Friday, which was crazy. The only downside was that I was expected to stay hours after my shift to get other work done.

My favorite part of this job is helping customers find what they need either for themselves or for gifts. The product is something I can easily be behind and management will aid in you becoming an asset to the team.
Top Seller (Former Employee) – New York State – May 20, 2017
It was a fun job where one would be able to communicate all day with customers. It was fun because one could make friends with strangers and they would come back to you and remember your name and their experience. Sometimes customers decided to want to be your outside of work and even brought holiday presents if you were diligent in your work. It was very fun because, at the same time of work, It was a fun time socializing.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – May 19, 2017
Expect to be on your feet the entire time as it is fast paced. You need to be able to sell and up-sell, and be comfortable with demoing product on people. Coworkers were great with the exception of the retail manager. The manager would call sick on weekends and stay in the backroom for most of her shifts during the week. Several customers complained about the manager's attitude and snarky remarks towards them. The district manager did not listen to complaints but favored the manager.
Sales Clerk (Former Employee) – Vernon Hills, IL – May 18, 2017
● Responsible for daily organization and stocking of merchandise, maintaining store appearance, assisting customers with product selection, inventory control, and running the register (checking out purchased products)
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fremont, NE – May 18, 2017
I loved working there but don't apply for a temporary position if you really want to make money, I was there for 2 months and worked 4 times which was not worth it because I had to drive so far.
The environment was fun, management was great, and I loved smelling good after each shift. I didn't work enough to really learn things so it was kind of a struggle when you're busy and you don't know very much.
I did, however, take advantage of the discount because I love their products
Working as an associate requires commitment and strong selling culture. Working as management requires the same but also more of a time commitment and completely open availability including holidays. There are no 9-5 jobs here at Bath and Body Works.
no healthcare except for full time employees (managers)
The company is all about making sure the customers come first. Sales associates are trained to stop what they are doing and assist new customers that come through the front door. The team is amazing and they work with you in all aspects whether it is work-related or personal.
