    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I only had one interview, but sometimes that isn't the case. When I turned in my application I spoke with a manager/supervisor for a few minutes and kind of went over it and then she set up a group interview since they had some coming up, that may not always happen as Victoria's Secret always accepts applications even when we aren't necessarily hiring. After my interview, they called all of my references and a couples days later called me and told me I got the job and set up a day for me to come in and start my training.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions weren't that difficult, it was the usual:
       "tell me about a time when you had to overcome an obstacle in the work place"
      "tell me about your worst shopping experience and how you would do it different if you were the associate."
      "what do you find most rewarding about working in customer service?"
      "why do you want to work for victoria's secret?"
      "if you had describe yourself in 3 words what would they be?"

    Interview Details

    Really informal interview process. I was interviewed on the sales floor, actually I thought it was kinda unprofessional because customers were walking by and staring. I also thought it was a weird interview and I wasn't sure if they were just calling me in to meet me, or hire me

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went into the store to apply, I got a call for an interview date with in a week. The interview was a group interview. The same questions were asked among all of us. Once that was over, the manager asked how our availability was. Personally, I think that's what determined if you got a job or not. If you were more available than the next person, you pretty much got the job. Once the interview was over, 4-5 days later I got a call back and accepted their offer

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were hard. Very generic. Why Victoria's Secret? What can you bring to Victoria's Secret if hired? What knowledge do you have about bras, right now?   Answer Question
