    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Colorado Springs, CO) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I orginally started as a sales associate, was then prompted to bra specialist after interviewing with the stores management team. After a short period of time and interviews with our District Manager I became a member of A.I.M. (associates interested in management). A year went by and I decided to transfer to another state. I interviewed over the phone with that district's manager and we offered the category manager position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in July 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a higher position. Already worked for the company for over 2 years. I was told that I was initially chosen for the position, but the store manager changed her mind at the last minute to put her best friend, who had worked for the company for 6 months in the position instead. The district manager's phone interview was fantastic. Very relaxed interviews. There is a huge focus on finding the right personality fit for the management team. Just be professional and courteous and learn as much of the lingo as you can.
