Application Details

I applied in-person – interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in September 2014.

Interview Details

I printed out an online application and brought it into the store, about a week later I got a call back for an interview. The interview was one on one and very simple. The manager told me a lot about the company, store, and expectations about the position. At the end I was told if I would continue on to the next step I would have a second interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

    Interview Details

    I was looking around for jobs and Victoria's Secret was a company I really wanted to work for, so I looked up Victoria's Secret Careers and a page popped up from a third party site saying to send my resume to the HR department for the Herald Square location. It looked kind of sketchy, but I did it anyway. Close to a month later, I got an unexpected call to go to group interviews for the following week. I agreed and was told to wear all black. I waited around thirty minutes for the manager to come and three out of around 10 of us were called to come in. I was put in a group with much older women, but just acted myself. She asked us basic questions; go over our resume, what customer service means to us, and why VS. We were told if they wanted to proceed with us, they would call us back within two weeks and the HR manager would pick a department she feels fits your personality.

    My second call came that weekend for a second interview with Pink and it was with another candidate and the manager. It was good and I felt confident, but I was also really sick and my phone kept going off. I really connected with the Pink manager though and felt hopeful. She asked us the same questions as before and added more about the specific department like who is Pink's customer, and to describe our outfits because we were asked to come in our best Pink inspired outfit. We were told the same thing: two weeks if they wanted to continue with us.

    A little more than two weeks later, I got called with a job offer.

    Interview Details

    I went into the store to turn in my application and had an on the spot interview with a cash wrap lead. Next, I had a group interview with about 12 other girls. Here, you just want to stand out as much as possible. I had an advantage because the manager interviewing all of us graduated from my college and had the same major as me! Just have confidence and you'll be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went to the store and ask if they were hiring and a Cash Lead said yes they were for seasonal employees for their Semi-Annual Sale. Received the applications and completed the same day and also attached my resume to it as well. If applying please attach a resume because it provides you with a better chance at getting an interview. About a week and a half later I got a call on Thursday for an interview on Monday. The interview was a group interview and was very laid back, it was about eight girls all together. Interview lasted about 25 minutes and we were told they would be contacting our references (and they seriously do so please inform your references they will be receiving a call). Then i received a call that following Thursday or Friday from Victoria Secret asking if I would like to accept a job offer with them for $8.10 per hour. I accepted the offer and I am now a regular employee as a cashier.

    Interview Details

    Online Application, Call from Recruiter, Group Panel interview, job offer a week later. They look to hire people who are friendly and up beat...if you are one of these two things you have a chance with them. I got hired for a seasonal position, so I had a group interview with six other girls; try your best to stand out by answering the questions first; this shows that you are outgoing and that is another characteristic that they look for.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Asked for an application from a very friendly cashier that was ringing me out one day. Brought back the application two days later, talked very briefly with a manager and was asked to come back the next day for a group interview (with six other girls). I arrived early, like I was told to. I dressed very nicely, in all black (two of the other girls showed up in jeans!). We followed the manager to the food court, which was kind of awkward as it was loud and hard to hear the other girls talking. She started out telling us about the company, and then we went around the table, said our name and 3 words that our supervisor would use to describe us. She then threw out some random questions she got out of an interviewing manual. She didn't ask any direct questions, just told us to raise our hands if we had an answer. Not very effective, in my opinion. No questions about our abilities or past experience (of which I have quite a bit!). At the end of the questions, she then told us that we would hear back from her hopefully within a week, that she checks ALL references. She also made a point to mention that who gets hired isn't determined by JUST the interview alone. She said references were a huge part of it as well, and that as long as we have relevent experience with good references, they would take us on. The whole process took about 50 minutes.

    Cut to today, two weeks later. Not a single one of my references has been contacted, and I haven't heard a single thing from Victoria's Secret. I am aware that they do a background and credit check as well, but that shouldn't have been a problem for me. My references are great and I would've hoped she stuck to her word instead of feeding all of us a line of BS. Very disappointed, I think it would've been a nice place to work. She did say that some weeks we might not get many hours, but this is true of most retail places. All of the interactions I've had with the store's employees were great. Very nice group of girls working there and the manager gushed about what a great group of people they have there.
