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

Pros

Get to meet new interesting people all the time seeing as it is a Retail store. Most of work group consists of fun, productive and inspiring people. Well organized company.

Cons

Management very strict on break, arrival and departure times or too much socializing on the floor. Often had Sunday mandatory staff meeting even if you were not schedules to work for the day.

    Great Company to work for. But it is hard work for retail. But it is rewarding!

    The associates only get paid minimum wage & they are a lot expected out of them. No work/life balance for managers.

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

    Pros

    Great company values! They appreciate all of their employees and show it through generous store discounts, incentives, and gratis. If you are dedicated and passionate about the company and it's goals, you are able to move up (and even encouraged to move up). Some may think it looks like a simple retail job; however it is so much more. Being able to help women feel comfortable, confident and sexy is one of the reasons I have stayed with Victoria's Secret for as long as I have.

    Cons

    As mentioned previously, this is not just a typical retail job. If you are not a hard-working and passionate individual, you will most likely not succeed with Victoria's Secret. Sales Associates may not start out making the best pay, however reviews are made twice/year which provide the opportunity for a raise in compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management at Victoria's Secret is a great team to work for/with. Victoria's Secret educates and inspires an outstanding management team. They have a major impact on employee retention, customer satisfaction, and overall sales. My only advice for the management team (and HR) is to provide appreciation for those employees whom are dedicated and passionate about their careers with better pay. Those employees whom exhibit such qualities contribute to the overall sales, tremendously; they should be compensated as such.
