    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    the employee gratis they give their associates

    Cons

    leadership. unfortunately it's the people the company hires to lead their stores, not the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a strong look at senior leaders and why they promote people who sleep with the staff

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    Discount was amazing - 30 % off.

    Cons

    The entire management team was horrible. the store manager has no clue what she's doing. They hire almost anyone... and fire the experienced employees. By the way they are running their store it will shut down in no time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management.

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing I liked about working for this company was working with the customers

    Cons

    This company has a very negative environment; constantly talking in your ear (head set) telling you "sell, sell, sell" "greet everyone you see" " you are behind on sales, pick it up" etc. There were so many sales people on the floor saying "What are you looking for" that the customers complained of being bothered so much. With all those people working there you still had to ask permission to go to the bathroom over the head sets and wait for someone to cover your shift. After working there for 10 months, and I never learned to use the register even after the fact that I asked plenty of times to learn. Also, I love the product and was excited to order some clothes and soon found out you do not get employee discount for Online orders - only in-store discount on items NOT on sale. You get almost the same discount to those with the Angel card. Highly recommend you look somewhere else because it is poorly managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your employees grow in the company. Try not to treat them like they are all going to steal from you, and to expect the worst from them. Minimum wage is not enough of an incentive to make people work so hard to make the "quota" of the day. The constant talking in the ear of "sale, sale, sale" get's old and causes a lot of stress to the employees.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    Discount is pretty much the only pro. Unless you want to include working with idiots

    Cons

    Everything. They will put you in front while seeing a guy come in armed and will just let it be. Want you to flirt with the guys to make a sale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worst place to work out. Management has no respects for anyone. They will promote the ones that suck up but not the hard worker.
