Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Sarasota, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

Interview Details – Normally, it is a group interview. But all you really need to do to knock it out of the park of show a big smile, interest in everything the interviewer is saying. Ask questions, and you must be a friendly people-person. Friendly people sell the best.

Oh, and come in dressed professionally. Normally our dress code is to wear all black. If you come in wearing sweat pants (knowing from seeing this happen), as soon as the interview is done, they will throw away your application.

Interview Question – Usually the only questions they ask you is what happened in your previous jobs. And they WILL call to find out, and they will call your references.   Answer Question

Beauty Associate Interview

Beauty Associate
Santa Clara, CA

I applied in-person - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in September 2011.

Interview Details – I applied in person through an application, and was called for an interview within a couple weeks. The interview was a group process, we were brought into the back room with about 8 other interviewees, and a question was asked, then we went around the table and answered individually. We were asked what position we would like to apply for (bra specialist, beauty associate, PINK associate, and cash wrap were the main categories) and several other basic questions. I believe one of the questions was why would you like to apply to the category that you choose. I recall the questions being very basic, and did not require much research on the company (although research would definitely be helpful)

Interview Question – What made you choose the category that you would like to be put in?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase, at the time I was offered minimum wage of that county which was the typical wage for regular associates starting. Since I had no other retail experience I accepted the offer.
