Current Employee - Category Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Category Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Fast paced environment, fun people around you while you work both customers and employees. Its easy to built a passion for the company and the people on your team. Very easy to stand out and move up in the company.

Cons

The passion you build for the company is not mutual, the efforts of MOST of the employees is not compensated correctly through payment. Time invested in the development of the business and team, is not recognized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider some more intense training for Management Team, as other companies are successfully rolling out. Appreciate the hourly part-time associates, the company and Managers ask a lot from them and we do not compensate accordingly.

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

    Pros

    This is a great place to work for people who take pride in putting in a lot of hard work.

    Cons

    My manager during my time working here was impatient with new employees and didn't provide very good training. Long shifts are often scheduled with short breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Victoria's Secret as a summer job in 2012, and I got hired right at the beginning of a change in management. The transition was extremely rocky, making for an interesting first month of work for me to say the least.
