    Interview

    I applied in the store. They called me about a week or two later with a phone interview. Then a week after that, I had a in person interview with a manager. She asked me alot of questions and everything down but they were fairly easy to answer. They like if you wear all black. they called me 3 days later offering a position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Yonkers, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 1-on-1 interview in one of the store's back office. She had a small pile of applications in front of her so I knew I wasn't her only interview today. It was relatively relaxed. Her questions focused on my assessing my ability to approach strangers, make sales. She stressed that one big focus of the job is to make that VS store the preferred one for our area. She mentioned that I'd be required to sell a minimum of $300 worth of merchandise per day. I had done research on the company, made extra copies of my resume, pre-thought some ending questions in preparation for the interview etc. but didn't really end up needing it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Bellevue, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online which included a resume and filling out an application. I received an email request for an interview with the store manager a few days later. When I arrived at the store I was asked again to fill out another application! I was told to go sit with the other ladies that would be interviewing. We had a group interview in the middle of the mall, very noisy area, we could not hear each other speaking. We were told that we didn't have to answer all the questions but should take part in casual conversation. This was hands down the worst interview I have ever taken part of. Group interview.....really!!! I understand this is an entry level position but come on....this is ridiculous! Very unprofessional interview process.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went in for an interview- it was with one other girl. Very positive vibe, mostly asked questions about personality and the famous "why do you want to work here". My main focus was complimenting the company and focusing on their main products. After my first interview, a week went by before a call back to set up a second one. One main thing I noticed was one of the employees complimented me on showing up 10-15 minutes early! After the second interview (which was one on one) it took about a week and a half to hear back. Over all one of the best interviews I have been at. Very comfortable feeling talking to the manager and loved the energy and passion shared in both interviews.

    Interview

    long process but worth it. two interviews and they check your references so make sure you have reliable references. took about 2 weeks to be employed there after the interview. the interview was also a group interview which I've never done before but it wasn't too bad. easy questions.

    I went in the store and turned in my application on a Tuesday and that Friday I was called to let me know they had scheduled me an interview for that upcoming Sunday. I went in for the interview and was told that another manager would call my references and then if I fit their qualifications they would call me for onboarding. On the following Tuesday I was called in for onboarding scheduled for Wednesday. The process was quick and painless.
