    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    I loved the atmosphere and all the staff were lovely to work with. I actually saw myself going to bigger and better things within the company

    Cons

    Not as many hours due to overstaffing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire so many workers just a few sturdy, dependable workers!

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied at PINK on Sept. 9th and I didn't hear from them for about a week so I called to follow up. I was scheduled an interview on Sept. 16th.

    Make sure when you go to the interview WEAR ALL BLACK & GET THERE A LITTLE EARLY!!! It shows the manager that you are serious. I didn't dress "business casual" I wore black leggings and a black top. The Interview was held on the store floor (1 on 1 interview), but it wasn't too busy so that wasn't really a problem. She basically asked the generic interview questions "Tell me about yourself" "Why do you wanna work for pink" "What is your definition of a PINK girl." I was really nervous because it was only my 2nd job interview ever and I don't have any retail experience. The manager was so nice and understanding. She was always smiling and really friendly so that make the interview process more comfortable for me :)

    I was hired the day I had the interview and of course I accepted the offer. At the PINK location I was at (and the time of year) you start off seasonal then depending how you do during that period you're promoted to part time.

    FYI: Make sure you put down good reliable resources, THEY DO CHECK THEM!

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate at all considering it was my first job. But pay wasn't really discussed during my interview I think ill find that out when I go through training.
