Current Employee - Cashier in Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

30% discount for associates at VS, PINK, and Bath and Body Works
Free seasonal bra (if they have your size) and free perfume samples
Ability to make good hours if you have good availability
AIM program (associates interested in management)
If you move anywhere in the country where there's a store, you can transfer (good job security)

Cons

In smaller stores, not much opportunity for growth
No commission
They don't fire employees or discontinue seasonal employees if work isn't up to standards
Store standards change weekly/Too much product knowledge required
Mostly girls can get really catty

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let personal get in way of business

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is very good about recognizing great performance with great bonuses, all-expense paid trips, etc. You also get a great discount and free or heavily discounted bras, panties, perfumes, etc.

    Cons

    There are quite a few very poor performing district managers in place that are not being performance managed. They are unfortunately loosing great store managers and functional managers because of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your store managers how you want your manager to treat you.

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great women to work with and amazing incentives!

    Cons

    Working inconsistent hours. If you have a closing shift, you could be working til 4 am. You cannot leave until the store is set to standard every night, sometimes only have two other workers with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what it is like to be a part time employee, they work very hard for the short amount of time they are there!
