    Great!

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsThis is a great job if you are going to school. Hours are light so you won't have to worry about compromising your school work.

    ConsCall ins. You have these things called call ins. You call 2 hours before the shift to see if you have to work. It can be really hard to plan days with them, but its not the end of the world.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain better before letting associates on the floor and give less call ins

    Great Place to Work

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Mobile, AL

    Prosdiscount, advancement, people I work with

    Consminimum work-life balance, management doesn't like someone taking to many weekends off work

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should consider that people have lives other than the store. Also, management needs to be respectful of others and stop being caddy school girls when it comes to talking about employees personal business with others.

    Bra Stylist

    Bra Stylist (Former Employee) Orange, CA

    ProsFun place to work!
    Empowering women of all ages!
    Learned an endless amount of transferable skills!

    ConsManagement focuses more of numbers than the quality of a sale and basically encourages you to "harass" customers

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere were so many inconsistencies on how to handle sales, I would be working in the fitting room and ask on the radio if someone could check a sales been for a certain size and style (during Semi Annual Sale) and one manager yelled at me and very rudely told me that we don't shop sale or go through bins for customers while another told me that of course we did that. The managers did not communicate with each other and we constantly had issues like this and would be scolded for doing something another manager told us to do. Very dysfunctional!

    I LOVE working with Victoria Secret

    Advanced Bra Specialist (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsVery flexible with time and the company understands when unexpected situations arise. As an elevated associate, I love the fact that my hours never change. The company is all about internal advancement.

    ConsThey are not very flexible with off days during semi annual sale. If you work here most likely you will be working every Black Friday, day after Christmas, Memorial Day, and especially New Years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work

    Great Company

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company provides great discounts, free items, and special offers for its employees. I often found myself helping a lot of customers who were grateful to receive my help. It made me feel good knowing that I helped someone out as much as I did. The company provides a lot of training to make sure each person they hire is good for the job.

    ConsWhen I worked there, sometimes I was the only sales associate on the floor because my boss was always on the phone in the back. It was frustrating because I would always take the blame for my bosses mistakes even if a customer understood that it wasn't my fault at times. I often was told I was too organized in the store. I didn't know it was a problem, but it was where I worked.

    A great environment where the company honestly cares about the associates.

    Part Time Category Supervisor (Current Employee) Great Falls, MT

    ProsThe company cares about its employees and goes the extra mile to ensure they are happy with their job.

    ConsAll female staffing can have its challenges.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication among managers and associates is important to maintain and grow a store.
