    Interview Details

    The interview was easy and informative. It consisted of a lot of group questioning and even a short video about the company. Managers are hands on in the interview. Company policies overrule the usual softball questions and you could tell it was a very procedural process.

    Cash Wrap Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago Ridge, IL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    It's usually a group interview. The only time one on one interviews are done is when you're transfering from another store or are on your 2nd interview. Come dressed very neat & let your style show but not too Buisness, so no suits. No super long nails because the lady who interviewed us looked at this one lady who had long pointy nails the entire time. She didn't get the job either. Always go first or second when answering questions. If you wait too long then it doesn't show assertiveness & they look for that. When they say "do you have any questions for me" always think of something to ask, this will leave an impression.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you get along well with others.?
      What attracted you to our store.?
      Explain a time when you had to work with a team and what you had to do.
