1. How has Bath And Body Works prepared you in your career

Honestly, I don't think any sales associate position prepares you for any one position. When you're a sales associate you deal with a lot of different things so not only did my time at BBW prepare to continue any retail work I may pursue but it taught a lot about myself and how to handle things under pressure as well learning to treat people with respect no matter how they treat you in return.

2. Were you offered any advancement opportunities at Bath And Body Works

I was not. It's hard to advance when you're an 18 year old seasonal worker who also goes to school in Boston. There's not a lot of wiggle room.

Rate your managers

I think it was great. Again, BBW was a big family. If you messed up someone was there to help you get it together. I made myself available to my manager as much as I could and I think it was just an all around good relationship.

Suggestions for the CEO

Every store has its quirks and things you just have to roll with, but I don't think there was anything we had to improve on. We tried to hit all the bases with the customers and we tried to stock and clean as fast as possible while giving the customers ample attention; but I don't think there's much more to ask for.

Advancement opportunities
