I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.
Interview Details – I enjoyed this interview. I had a one on one interview with a manager since the other applicant did not show. I found the manager was very welcoming and understanding of why I left my previous job. The manager was very open to answering my questions about the position and described the duties of the position I applied for clearly.
Interview Question – Describe a situation you would help our customer. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.
Interview Details – Range from 2-3 interviews. If you applying from within, youll interview with the manager you'll be reporting to (depending on the volume level of the store it could either be the Product Manager, Brand Delivery & Operations Manager)
Interview Question – If you're interviewing from within they'll want to know how you're prepared to handle high volume times, manage a team and give direction, and how well you know the merchandise standards both on the sales floor and in the stockroom. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – If you're interviewing from within the company, you're going to be offered the minimum. Try to leverage the time you've put in with a company. Also it helps is they know you're interviewing elsewhere and what other companies are willing to offer you. They only want to pay more to those from outside of the company, but they also would rather hire someone from within who already knows the store.
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in December 2013.
Interview Details – Turned in application in store and surprisingly was called back within an hour. The interview was with a group of 5 other prospects and one interviewer. After working at VS for a while, I helped with a few rounds of hiring, which takes place in April - May before Semi-annual Sale that takes place in June and then of course Holiday time (hiring in October). We get hundreds of applications and honestly, it does not help to call the store asking to "check on your application" or "speak to a manager" about it, because it pretty much just disturbs the cashiers trying to help customers, since thats where the phones are. Managers usually just tell whoever answers the phone to tell the caller that they will call after they review applications. My VS, which was a smaller store, hires 30-40 people per season so most people are likely to get a call back within a week or two. Also, they DO call references after interviews before hiring anyone. Make sure you have those with you on your interview day!
Interview Question – The questions are basic and then there are other questions called "ice breakers" usually different every hiring season as they are sent from corporate. In my interview, it was something random like, "If you could be any super hero, who would you be and why?" Questions to make you think of your toes. Answer Question

Interview Details – My hiring process was very quick. I picked up an application, returned it, and interviewed all in the same day. I think the process might have changed a bit since then but I had an offer within a few hours of my interview. Nothing too difficult was asked. Standard retail questions such as dealing with rude customers or what would you do in a situation.
Interview Question – Nothing out of ordinary for a retail store Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Was hired as seasonal and ended up staying for 6 years.
Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in December 2013.
Interview Details – Print and fill out application, but make sure you hand it to a CSL or manager so they can double check they have everything you need. I got called back for an interview in less than a week and hired two days after the interview. It was really easy, I just went in the back room where the Lingerie manager asked me questions about myself and why I wanted to work for Victoria's Secret.
Interview Question – The most difficult question I got was about what was my favorite aspect of my favorite bra and why, just because it wasn't something I was expecting/had previously thought about. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I wrote on my application what I wanted to be paid and they accepted it straight.

I applied through other source - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in November 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied to this Victoria's Secret after not getting the job in the town I'm going to school at. I applied for seasonal (and hopefully will be able to come back for summer).
I called and specifically asked for the hiring manager, and was able to speak with her. I wanted to talk with her and make a small impression on her and make sure she knew I was serious about working during the holiday! I was able to print out the application and fax it to them in a few days. I called again a week later to make sure my application went through and to check the status, and she (the same manager) told me she hadn't set up any interviews yet but would let me know when they did. I was fortunately coming home an upcoming weekend and I let her know I would be more than happy to do a phone interview or come in that weekend I was home. I got a call on the Wednesday before I was coming home, and had a group interview set up that Friday.
I showed up about 10 minutes early and waited about 15 minutes until I was approached by the operations manager and the store manager. It was me and one other girl, and we were taken across the street to sit outside on a patio.
The store manager first just told us a little about the store and what they were looking for in terms of positions, and she told us a little about her experience and the operations managers experience. We were then asked to tell us a little about ourselves, to which I just briefly talked about going to school and being a graphic design manager and wanted to come home to work for the holiday.
We were then asked the following questions (in no order):
1. What's the first thing you notice when you walk into a store?
2. Have you ever had to take on a task/project and not had enough time to complete it? What did you do?
3. Have you ever had any issues with anyone you've worked with?
4. Have you ever been in a situation where one managers tells you to do something and another manager tells you something different, and how did you handle it?
5. What would you do in the situation of internal theft?
I think there were a couple of other questions, too.
For the most part the interview was very relaxed, we were able to have a few little side conversations. During the interview, the store manager told us she isn't usually the one to do the interviews and when she does she is picky. She explained in one group interview she had 6 girls and only 1 made it! She basically explained she is looking for bubbly and smiley people who will be bring positivity and provide good customer service.
*They will call references, so put good ones down!
