    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (San Diego, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    First applied for cashier, picked up and dropped off application on same day, called to check up and never got a call back. I did not give up! Went in a month later and reapplied. Got a call back after two hours and set up my first interview. My first interview was a group interview and they let me know so I was prepared. Besides the interviewer and I there was a few girls. A camp counselor, a fresh high school grad, a navy woman, and two that didn't speak at all. The interviewer told us about the different positions, about the history and her history with the store. She then told us she will ask a few questions and whoever wanted to speak up, can. Being the outgoing person I am I answered every single one of them with no hesitation. A few days later I received a call for a second interview. This time it was the camp counselor and I with a different interviewer. We are all outgoing and had no problem with discussing things and making each other laugh. It didn't even feel like an interview because of all the laughter! A few hours later, I got a call offering me a job starting at $12 per hour, and then willing to work with my salon apprentice job. Of course, being a 19 year old girl on her own, I excitedly accepted the offer!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went in for an interview- it was with one other girl. Very positive vibe, mostly asked questions about personality and the famous "why do you want to work here". My main focus was complimenting the company and focusing on their main products. After my first interview, a week went by before a call back to set up a second one. One main thing I noticed was one of the employees complimented me on showing up 10-15 minutes early! After the second interview (which was one on one) it took about a week and a half to hear back. Over all one of the best interviews I have been at. Very comfortable feeling talking to the manager and loved the energy and passion shared in both interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Culver City, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I delivered resume, application, & credentials. Hiring manager took it and seemed pro-active. Did not hear anything for 2 weeks, followed up with a phone call. Waited one week followed up with a call again. The same hiring mgr. called me on a Saturday for an interview Monday. Arriving 20 minutes early, waited 45 min a manager to come out, ask two questions. Impressed I did my research on the company, 2nd question what else do I enjoy doing, interview took place on the floor of the store. She took my resume copy, said they would be checking references, and to contact the young lady in a week. I called after the interview and asked for the young lady's last name correct spelling as it was never given to me to send a thank you to both for the time they took out for the interview. It happened to be the same women that I interviewed with, she gave me the name and spelling and than just hung up on me. No thank you or have a good day. Saturday received a very small card denying, saying even though my resume was impressive. I checked with all references none of them received a phone call from the store.

    Group interview where the hiring manager asked a series of questions and whoever wanted to answer first could answer. It was a fairly relaxed atmosphere and was pretty fun and the interviewer was pleasant and professional.
