    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I filled out my application that I got from the store. I then went to the store and handed it in and asked for a manager (you really need to do this). She looked at my application right in front of me and then said "Everything looks great! I have a group interview tomorrow and I would love to interview you!" I went the next day in all black. (This is the dress code for the employees so it really puts you in the environment) She had a huge smile on my face when she saw what I was wearing, so I really recommend dressing in all black. I was interviewed with another girl. The manager was super sweet and made us feel extremely comfortable like it was just some friends getting to know one another. She asked me about my previous job and how I handled situations where there are a lot of people. I applied for seasonal sales associate, so that's why I got this question. Christmas can be crazy in Southlake. She then asked us what was a time when we had great customer service. Then what was a time we had to manage our time well and how did we do it. She also asked how would we react to a difficult customer. She asked how would we handle a situation when a customer is criticizing their body. Basically those sort of questions. If you answer in a really feminist way, they'll love it. Talk about how you think VS helps women to build their self image, etc. She then told me that she would call my references and let me know within the next 2 days if I got the job. The next day she called all of my references and then called me and offered me the job. Employee benefits: 20% off VS merch and Bath and Body Works. After 1 month of working there it is 30% off. Also you get super discounts on new bras which is awesome. It's a really fun environment. I love feeling sexy and I definitely do when I am working there. :)

    Interview Questions
    • When did you have excellent customer service?
      When were you under pressure and how did you finish what you had to do?
      How would you handle someone with a low self image?
      How would you describe Victoria's Secret's goal as a company?
      How would you handle a difficult customer?

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    It took about a week.. I walked in and asked if they were hiring and they were for seasonal positions the associate I spoke to was friendly and told me to fill it out an application on the spot so she could give it to the manager, moments later I spoke to one of the shift managers she was also very nice she asked why I wanted to work at Victorias secret and if she could contact my most recent employer and told me to come in for a group interview being held a couple days later

    The group interview was smooth and easy a Different manager interviewed about 6 of us ladies and guys applied for stock and cashier position she asked us basic questions and why we want to work there just smile a lot and look at whoever is speaking, when you're talking be articulate and make sure u do a little bit of homework on the company ... Towards the end of the interview she told us we would be getting a call back before Sunday so I was waiting patiently for a whole 2 days, she finally called and invited me back for a second group interview

    The second interview was with the store manager he was polite and let us know that we had all (4 of us) been invited back because one of the managers wanted to hire us but nobody gets hired without meeting him, he then asked us to share a little about ourselves and said he'd be able to determine from how we speak, sat etc .. To observe little things basically .. It was kind of nerve racking but again just smile, show some personality be polite and show interest in whoever is speaking.. At the end of that he told us we would receive a call back with a yay or nay... I got a call a couple hours later to start training on Wednesday ! I'm so excited I can tell this is a great place to work

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    After printing out an application and filling it out, I called VS and ask them are there any qualifications (days that not a lot of people work on such as weekends) and she replied no. Upon getting there in professional attire and my application/resume ready as I hand it her, she flips through and ask why cant I work weekends. Before i could even give my response she drops my resume/ application on the counter not even into my open hand. She was very rude never again will i apply here rude customer service.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview I had at a PINK store in my local mall was very laid back. It was a 1 to 1 interview and the manager was super cool and nice. I felt like I was talking to my best friend. I dressed in all black (leggings, flow like tank top, a cardigan and toms) and arrived early which the manager appreciated. The interview was held on the store floor. I was nervous because I had no previous retail experience, but the manager was super understanding and willing to teach. They're looking for someone reliable, has a positive outlook on things, and a great personality. There were a lot of scenario based questions and personality questions. Overall the experience was good.

    Pretty easy, applied in store and the associate asked me why i wanted to work at PINK and told me to chose anything from the store and sell it to her. Then told me i did a good job and she would give my application to a hiring manager and she was sure I would get a call "very soon." Got a call the same day and was offered an interview with one of the managers. She basically asked me, why i wanted the job, what i would describe a pink girl as and asked about my previous jobs.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview will be with one of the managers. Consists of a group interview done in 3's. Manager will ask a series of questions to each candidate. They usually ask 1-5 questions, duration of interview is 20-40 mins depending on the length of response to answers I'd say.
    VS is very keen to your availability they tend to base some of their decision making on this and they do call all your references! so make sure they are reliable ones and good ones.

    Interview Questions
    • What did you first notice while entering the store?
      How would you sell the angel card to the customer?
      while being employed by VS, we do a little bit of everything. How do you balance out what and how you start your duties for a shift?

    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

    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 applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.
