Pros: the stores were easy to maintain and you truely were in charge of your own business.
Cons: regional management lacked in supplying my district with qualified dm, in four years i had more than 5 district managers.
I greatly enjoyed many years at The Body Shop. I gained a lot of experience networking and providing services for the community. I even won the Woman of the Year award from the Soroptimist group. I was able to turn around several stores including a bottom 3 store to the top ten in the company earning me a spot to help re-write the corporate training manual at head office. We had several large gaps in District Management, but I was able to utilize my skills and step in when needed. Many of the employees I hired and worked with were promoted to managers and are still in retail management today.
