Consultant (Former Employee) – Andover, Hampshire – 16 July 2018
In general, my time at the Body Shop was positive, as my team were lovely and the company itself are very supportive and considerate. However we had a lot of issues with management towards the end of my employment period, and there was a massive lack of attention and support from middle management in order to help the team in my small store, and our personal lives and contracted hours were not taken into consideration whatsoever which is why I, among others, eventually left. No matter how moral and good the company as a whole is, it will always be about money and productivity at the end of the day- just keep this in mind!

The Body Shop at Home is a great place to work in. You learn a lot very quickly and there is always new ideas to share with colleagues and customers. The job role is mainly based around creative sales and engaging with customers on a regular basis.
I've learned quite a few new sales techniques and how to deal with challenges that may arise, for example products not reaching customers on time and how to better engage with customers, i.e. via email, social networks etc..
Workplace culture is nice and very diverse - so you get to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds and try new things. The hardest part of the job would be facing challenges that you didn't see coming, but being patient and positive always helps, as help can come from any direction.
The most enjoyable would be receiving monthly bonuses like the body shop products and the consistent training that is available for whenever you need it and also your managers are always there to support via phone at short notice.

Stockroom Consultant (Former Employee) – Thurrock, ENG – 15 January 2014
A typical day for me was to get stuck into to the stockroom and unpack all the boxes. i learnt that work places like this can be friendly and i gained more experience to my stockroom experience. The managment is fantastic, just how how work place should be ran. hardest part of the job is equal because everything is tough. The most enjoable part of the job is the people.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Norfolk area. – 26 January 2013
I quite enjoyed working for Body Shop at home to begin with, it was very easy to get my first 10 or so orders, mainly from family and friends. After I had gained a few loyal people who kept ordering monthly it was OK, but unfortunately getting new orders in from strangers was difficult there was a lot of let downs and people not paying me by deadline times etc. My manger was very helpful for the first couple of months when I was getting big orders from lots of people but as soon as I started to get less orders I was basically ignored and asking for help got me no where - this is not a generalization as there are many different managers for The Body Shop at home.
long distance traviling for orders that don't even cover petrol cost.
