Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Application Details

I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in June 2014.

Interview Details

I printed out the application online and walked into the store to introduce myself to a manager. She then passed along my application and resume to the hiring manager, who called me in for an interview 2 days later. It was a group interview with about 4-5 other people, but you are called in to actually interview one-by-one. They want you to wear all-black and look professional. I got called back for a second interview 3 hours later, and this time it was just me and one other guy from the group interview, still being interviewed one-by-one. I didn't get a call for the job for over a week; so I followed-up after 8 days and they called me back soon after offering me the job.

    Really informal interview process. I was interviewed on the sales floor, actually I thought it was kinda unprofessional because customers were walking by and staring. I also thought it was a weird interview and I wasn't sure if they were just calling me in to meet me, or hire me

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was very quick, smooth and very well organized. They do have a system for hiring new people and getting them in a position however it may be because they go through a ton of employees all the time. There were helpful videos and even a little work booklet to help me learn the company and my position.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Turned in an application with a resume attached. Got a call for an interview a couple weeks later. It was a group interview with the pink manager but only one other girl showed up. As soon as the interview was over we were both told to come back the next day for a second interview. The next interview was with the assistant manager and it was also a group interview. There were two more girls for this interview.

    Interview Details

    Well it first started off with me and another girl, we went to the break room and started our interview. The first interview was mostly just to know you as a person better, they said there was gonna be a 2nd and maybe 3rd but I got a job offer after the 1st a week after the interview. Mostly you should dress all black when going to the interview at Victoria's Secret.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was fairly easy for me at least. I was one of four girls and 3 out of 4 of us have had retail experience already. I showed up 15 minutes early and was told to come back in 10 minutes because the other girls haven't shown up yet, so I just looked around the store. The assistant manager gathered us and took us to a table at the food court, pulled out our applications and I saw that mine was checked 'Yes' already before anything started which was great! I applied in person and came to the store regularly so I was a familiar face already. She told us that she was gonna ask us questions one at a time and she always asked me first. Only asked us about two questions each, then went into the job detail and what she expected etc. Then afterwards we all thanked her for the interview and she told us that the actual hiring manager was on vacation so we'd hear back a week later when she returns. Then it was over.

    Interview Questions
    • 1. Have you ever up sold a customer?
      2. Sell me your outfit.
      questions for the other girls were
      -How would a manager describe you in 3 words?

      she asked if we knew our sister sizes
      asked the difference between servicing a customer and selling

      FYI : I was the only one who showed up in all black clothing since it's their uniform and I was used as an example for appropriate dress attire so wear all black!
      smile naturally and be cheery and confidence with a positive attitude
