Pros

Victoria's Secret is more like a family than a company. They care about your development, about the customer and about your work/life balance. They give millions to charity every year as well as associate incentives. They (along with your help) create an experience for the customer, not just a store to shop in.

Cons

None. It's retail so you have the same customer issues as anyone else but the company gives you millions of ways to resolve them.

Advice to Management

Follow up with development and create more connectivity when possible.

    Pros

    AMAZING discounts! 50% off 10 items for every floorset as well as 50% three beauty items (per each floorset). Regular discount is 20% and then it gets bumped to 30% after 60 days. Very flexible schedules, awesome for college students. Realistic sales goals (I can only speak for my store). Cute and comfy dress code! PINK or similar attire, so like sweatpants, yoga pants, leggings, skirts, dresses, etc. Pretty easy to learn everything overall - took me less than a month to master cashwrap, shipments/processing, backroom, fitting, and general sales. PLENTY OF ADVANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES! If you want to move up in the company talk to your store manager and show that you deserve it!

    Cons

    Call in shifts really stink because you can never really plan out your day or week, but that's part-time retail. No bonuses for exceeding sales goals. I really wish we made commission on how many credit cards we "sold" as a better incentive - or something like that. Minimum wage stinks.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe implement more incentives for the associates to sell bras and Angel Cards.

    Pros

    - Fun work environment - Discounts - Customer interaction - Lots of tools available to learn about the product and how to promote the brand better

    Cons

    - Micromanagement - Hard to fit in - Not flexible with hours

    Advice to Management

    Don't talk down to your employees; condescension isn't going to get you anywhere.
