I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

Interview Details – I walked in and asked about an application. The manager told me they were looking to hire at least 3 new people. I turned the application in about 4 days later and they signed me up for an interview on the spot. The interview was about 20 minutes and was professional. I heard about getting the job less than a week after the interview. The whole process took about 2 weeks.

Interview Question – How would you conduct a bra fitting and what would be most important to help the customer feel comfortable while getting one?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much of a negotiation on the pay. I was told that raises were given often to high performing employees.

Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Mesa, AZ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in October 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process is fairly easy only a few questions on experience. That being said when you walk in the door they will have already decided if they want you or not based on looks. Wear a black dress or skirt with wedges or heels. Be sure that your hair and makeup is done. I was there for most of the holiday hiring process and we could pick the girls out who wouldn't get a job before their interview based on how they presented themselves. I cannot stress how important it is to look your best come interview day.

Interview Question – Have you ever upsold a customer at your last job?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There honestly is very little to it. You will not be setting your own salary it will be minimum no matter previous pay. They are highly inconsistent about calling people back after the interview and even after the job offer with setting up training shifts. That being said you must keep up with it call a week after the interview if they haven't contacted you and be sure to set a training date over the phone when you reach them. My files got lost several times by management they called a different number and figured I didn't want the job. So be on top of it!
