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

    Pros

    I loved getting a gratis just about once every month to get the latest bra for $15 , free- $3 panties, and new fragrances. I racked up a lot of bras over the past years. The hours as a core associate were fairly decent and overall was a great environment to work in.

    Cons

    Folding panties all night was the worst part of the job! All the panty tables and panty drawers had to be 100% every night, meaning each panty has to be folded individually and color coded to ROY G BIV. It was usually hectic throughout the day so closers would typically be stuck doing about 85% of the panties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and every once in a while try to actually manage instead of being in the office talking to your beau. Also, when setting goals for others (like credit) it helps associates to see that you're actually working hard to achieve your own credit goals as well.
