    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied at a local VS, make sure when you turn in your app you ask for a manager and speak with them and give the app to them.. it did take 8 days for me to get a call back so don't get discouraged! I was called on a Sunday for an interview the next day, and as expected it was a group interview with 2 other girls. I was the only girl to wear all black and the manager later thanked me for that.. The questions were simple we all had the chance to answer, I answered first the most, but you want to let the other girls talk too, at the end we made sure our availability was correct and that our references were good ones. This is super important because in order for them to hire you they need to speak with 2 references so make sure you have reliable ones! 4 days after my interview I was called for on boarding the next day which is basically all your training.. I was the only one from my interview for on boarding also. Very easy process!

    Interview Details

    Went in the store early September and asked if they were hiring. I put in my application the following week. I was then told to come back in October. I went back September 30 to show my face and let manager know I was still interested. Went to the store two times in two weeks to check on application. Got called for an interview on the third week. Had a group interview the next day with 5 other girls. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Manager was bubbly and funny but very professional. Only a few questions were asked. After that they told us they'd give our references a call and call us back. Got the call two weeks after interview offering me the position!!

    Interview Details

    I initially applied for the job on a whim and got a call about 4 days later for first interview. It went great but I was a little bummed when I was told that the position was seasonal, I wanted a part time job. So about a week later I received a second interview. The second interview was with the Store Manager and he was very nice and friendly. He offered me a part-time sales associate position on the spot!

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    It took about a week.. I walked in and asked if they were hiring and they were for seasonal positions the associate I spoke to was friendly and told me to fill it out an application on the spot so she could give it to the manager, moments later I spoke to one of the shift managers she was also very nice she asked why I wanted to work at Victorias secret and if she could contact my most recent employer and told me to come in for a group interview being held a couple days later

    The group interview was smooth and easy a Different manager interviewed about 6 of us ladies and guys applied for stock and cashier position she asked us basic questions and why we want to work there just smile a lot and look at whoever is speaking, when you're talking be articulate and make sure u do a little bit of homework on the company ... Towards the end of the interview she told us we would be getting a call back before Sunday so I was waiting patiently for a whole 2 days, she finally called and invited me back for a second group interview

    The second interview was with the store manager he was polite and let us know that we had all (4 of us) been invited back because one of the managers wanted to hire us but nobody gets hired without meeting him, he then asked us to share a little about ourselves and said he'd be able to determine from how we speak, sat etc .. To observe little things basically .. It was kind of nerve racking but again just smile, show some personality be polite and show interest in whoever is speaking.. At the end of that he told us we would receive a call back with a yay or nay... I got a call a couple hours later to start training on Wednesday ! I'm so excited I can tell this is a great place to work

    Non-Selling Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Des Moines, IA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I printed and filled out a paper application and turned it in in-store. The manager that took my application asked me a few basic questions and told me I would probably get a call for an interview that day.
    About 30 minutes later I got a call to set up an interview 3 days from then and I was told it would be a group interview and who my interviewer was so I would know who to ask for when I came in.
    There were 4 girls interviewing in my group who were all interested in different positions. We were led down to the food court of the mall and did the interview there.
    First she asked us to each introduce ourselves, talking about previous experience, why retail and why Victoria's Secret. We each went around and did a quick introduction like this.
    After the introductions, the interviewer basically just described the different positions (Selling and Non-Selling Associates) as well as described the new bonus structure for selling associates. She talked about her personal experience with the company and how the daily workings of the store went. After this, she asked if we had any questions for her and she answered what questions we did have. She told us at the end that they would check our references (which they did... my manager at my summer job told me that she got a call) and get back to us.
    Overall, this interview was very easy compared to previous interviews. It was strange to be in a group setting, but I think this also made it a little more comfortable because you were around people you may possibly get to work with in the future.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I printed off my application and brought it into the store, wearing a suit with my hair and makeup fully done. I would say that appearances are important, not necessarily having photo shoot makeup and hair, but putting forth an effort to look put-together and fashionable. The manager approached me and took my application with a warm smile. She promised to be in touch in the next week or two to set up an interview and true to her word, she called the following week week. I interviewed with her two days later. It was supposed to be a group interview, however the second girl didn't make it for the interview so it was just us! She started out by asking me to tell her a little bit about myself and my lifestyle. Next we discussed the position that I was interested in. She told me about a few changes that were currently happening in the company, which I really appreciated, as it changed my mind about the position I wanted.
