    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    As the interviewer: Usually one to two interviews, behavioral questions (i.e. What would you do if...; tell me about a time when...) They want to know you have an interest in team work and in the customer, not so much that you just want the discount

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
