Made me a "customer for life"

Current Employee - Sales Associate  in  Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Sales Associate in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time for less than a year

Pros

- Really push getting to know your customer on a personal level--you learn to really care about the customer and what they want/need
- EXCELLENT discount (30% standard, 50% 10 items for every floorset if you work PINK, and wonderful gratis)
- If you are a good worker, managers will notice. This can also be a con, for if you are a poor worker, you will notice.
- Fun environment, fun managers, fun coworkers

Cons

- High-pressure job. You're expect to talk to EVERY customer who walks into your store
- A manager will be walking around to check if you're doing just so
- Hours are based largely on business, which means any time after holidays = 1 shift a week, sometimes at best
- Call-in shifts: the bane of a retail associate's existence
