    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Focus on inspiring & leading -Workshops on new products/topics once a month -Continuous training -Great corporate mission and consistent execution throughout all of the stores -The company spends a lot of money on marketing & training materials

    Cons

    -If you are excelling in the role you were hired to fulfill you will be seen as "valuable" and will be overworked. You will be given illusionary opportunities to move up. No matter how hard you work they will keep you in the same position because it makes the management look better & they don't want to take the time to develop new associates. -The management only cares about themselves and will stifle your desire to grow within the company -The attitudes of the management teams are very negative. The store manager was always too stressed and irrationally taking it out on the subordinates. -Horrible pay for all the hard work that is required at the store level.

    Advice to Management

    -Show that you value your employees -Don't overwork your best employees because you rely solely on them. -Focus on developing those with potential into key roles -Create a positive atmosphere -Lead by example

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    30% off items, gratis fun environment to work in good amount of training your constantly moving and there is always something to do (good and bad) many acknowledgments for good work

    Cons

    very low pay for amount of work to be done never expect to leave on time always expect to stay AT LEAST 1/2 hour after frowned upon if you have to leave on time or if getting a shift covered and they make it seem like your the terrible one for abandoning them if your not a favorite you get no hours, if you are, then you get scheduled WAY too much and overworked dont expect to get your request for time off to be accepted, even if its like 2-3 MONTHS ahead of time, and then when you try to get your shift covered no one can ever cover it long closings and long shifts (sometimes 10-12 hours)

    Advice to Management

    be more flexible with time off and remember that working there is not our entire life. give employees a pay thats worth all the work that is done
