    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    AMAZING FREEBIES AND "BUY-INS"...fun atmosphere, great music, lovely products, fun team environment for the most part. Some managers are absolutely phenomenal while others are so-so. PROVIDE THE TEAM WITH FANTASTIC LEARNING TOOLS AND TRAINING COULDN'T BE BETTER. really amazing company to work for, just sometimes they fall short bc of it being such a large team or large store!

    Cons

    fighting off shoplifters in a constant struggle. always understaffed at closing time so closing employees have to stay way later then they should!!! management sometimes is oblivious to what the girls need bc they have to be dug out of their piles of paperwork or LONG phone calls with corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management sometimes is oblivious to what the girls need bc they have to be dug out of their piles of paperwork or LONG phone calls with corporate. They need to hire more girls and schedule better to have more coverage when they need it. better enforcement of dress code would make for a more professional work environment.

    (At the Time) Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

    Interview Details

    I went in and dropped off an application and got a call to come in for an interview. It was held in the "back" of the store / their break room. It was myself, another candidate and the assistant store manager.
    It was a lot of general interviewing questions but she asked "Sell me something in this room" the other girl went first and chose her purse and she fumbled a lot. I chose a pair of panties that were in a box ( they were stocking up for semi-annual sale) and I was very detailed about that pair and said at the end "but if these arnt for you we also have a fuller coverage style" which she told me right then she LOVED and never heard anyone say that before.

    I got the job and so did the other girl but the other girl didn't make it past her 90 day period.

    I started scheduling and conducting interviews after I got promoted to Bra Supervisor so It's really neat to hear the difference answers and tell who really wants it.

    Negotiation Details
    It was above min. wage so I took it as is. I just turned 18 so I wasn't too picky.
