    Application Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • "Sell me something out of your purse or pick something out of the store"
      "Describe what you think a PINK girl is"

    Interview Details

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, the pay was so much more than i expected, and i was told i could request off.

    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.

      How would you sell the angel card to the customer?

    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

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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 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.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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
