Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Columbus, OH

I applied in-person and 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 Question – 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?"

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Manassas, VA

I applied in-person and 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 Question – 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

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

Interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores

Interview Details – After submitting my app online I was called in 2 weeks later for an interview. It was in the store office in the back with one manager. She asked fairly easy questions "why would you like to work here" "what are your best attributes?" etc; I was hired rather quickly because they very much needed someone but I've seen different times of the year that they get back to people much later (like 4-6 wks)

Interview Question – How will you improve this company?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations, just an idea of the benefits and of future opportunities. Also discounts started right away!
