    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Evansville, IN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty laid-back interview. Submitted an application in person and was contacted about a week later for an interview. The interview itself was a group interview with two other people. I had looked on this app for potential questions, and several came up that I'd seen before. However, I second-guessed myself and didn't answer the question about "wardobing" a customer for fear of being wrong-wish I had spoken up. Don't be afraid to hold conversation with the interviewer! We all took turns answering the questions for the most part, but don't be afraid to share real-life experiences you've had in the store or other stores, even if it is an example of something negative that you've learned from. The people at this location are all very nice and seem to be very close to each other. I received a call with a job offer the day after the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Arlington, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    My sister and I filled out applications and went to turn them in in-person. When we got there we were greeted by one of the sales associates and told her that we were here to turn in applications. She kindly told us to standby while one of the managers came out and settle us. One of the managers came out and greeted us with an enourmous smile on her face. She introduced herself and so did we. She even commented on how pretty our names were! She was looking through our applications and was very pleased with what she was seeing. Suddenly another manager comes up and tells her that she will "handle this." She snatches the applications from the other manager and doesn't even introduce herself to my sister and I, we had to tell her our names. She skims through the applications and makes a face while saying that we needed to be able to work all day on weekends. We didn't want to do that, but we really needed jobs so we agreed. But she retorts that we don't have enough retail experience, that the minimum is 2 years in retail. Says she will keep our applications on file and to have a nice day. It was an awful experience. I know we would have gotten the jobs (or at least an interview) had the first manager stayed :(

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a really casual and comfortable process. Everyone was very friendly even in a group interview. It's smart to speak up first and to be confident and outgoing. Stress customer service. All the interview questions I were asked had to do with experience and naming times when you experienced or acted upon certain things like. I had little to no work experience and was still offered a job because of being confident and speaking up.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I took my application into the store and was invited back for a group interview the next day. The interview was a store manager and one other applicant. It was kind of intimidating, not only because I had a person to directly compete with but because we did the interview in the middle of the mall in a little seating area so everyone was walking by and staring.

    Interview

    Did not pay attention to me. Really rude. Didnt want to know my name. Spent 5 minutes on me. Made me fill out an entire application only to tell me that i cant work there because i have to be free on weekends. I said yes i can be free in the mornings or afternoons and she said no you need to be all day available and i said more than 8 hours ? And then she told me goodbye. Kinda hurt. And i was really nice and professional. She just didnt even treat me as a normal human with respect.
