    Pros

    AMAZING FREEBIES AND "BUY-INS"...fun atmosphere, great music, lovely products, fun team environment for the most part. Some managers are absolutely phenomenal while others are so-so. PROVIDE THE TEAM WITH FANTASTIC LEARNING TOOLS AND TRAINING COULDN'T BE BETTER. really amazing company to work for, just sometimes they fall short bc of it being such a large team or large store!

    Cons

    fighting off shoplifters in a constant struggle. always understaffed at closing time so closing employees have to stay way later then they should!!! management sometimes is oblivious to what the girls need bc they have to be dug out of their piles of paperwork or LONG phone calls with corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management sometimes is oblivious to what the girls need bc they have to be dug out of their piles of paperwork or LONG phone calls with corporate. They need to hire more girls and schedule better to have more coverage when they need it. better enforcement of dress code would make for a more professional work environment.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for LBrands is a very rewarding experience. I have learned so much about business management, leadership, and retail. Great perks to working for Victoria's Secret, almost always get a free bra with a new launch. 30% discount with part time associate status. Discount across all brands under LBrands including, Bath & Body Works, Henri Bendal, La Senza, White Barn Candle Company and a few more! Gratis' and free fun stuff all the time is well worth it!

    Cons

    Work-life balance is very difficult with retail hours but expected and a given in the industry. Time off policies are strict during holiday, which lasts from October through January with the big Semi-Annual Sale.

    Pros

    The company and company atmosphere is awesome. Everyone has and knows their job so there's no confusion. I like the organization and the fact that the stress level of the employees are low and so are attitudes. Everyone is quite respectful.

    Cons

    The nature of the job itself - if considering this role is quite slow. You have some busy days and VERY slow moving days. Hopefully you're the mind of person who values down time because it could be frustrating, surprisingly.

    Pros

    It can be competitive when working in sales but you and especially management quickly know who is nice or not. If you make commission it can be worth it

    Cons

    Long hours and have to dress up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stress out so much. Its a job.
