    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Schaumburg, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied at PINK on Sept. 9th and I didn't hear from them for about a week so I called to follow up. I was scheduled an interview on Sept. 16th.

    Make sure when you go to the interview WEAR ALL BLACK & GET THERE A LITTLE EARLY!!! It shows the manager that you are serious. I didn't dress "business casual" I wore black leggings and a black top. The Interview was held on the store floor (1 on 1 interview), but it wasn't too busy so that wasn't really a problem. She basically asked the generic interview questions "Tell me about yourself" "Why do you wanna work for pink" "What is your definition of a PINK girl." I was really nervous because it was only my 2nd job interview ever and I don't have any retail experience. The manager was so nice and understanding. She was always smiling and really friendly so that make the interview process more comfortable for me :)

    I was hired the day I had the interview and of course I accepted the offer. At the PINK location I was at (and the time of year) you start off seasonal then depending how you do during that period you're promoted to part time.

    FYI: Make sure you put down good reliable resources, THEY DO CHECK THEM!

    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA
    Application Details

    I applied 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
