    Pros

    Very flexible with time and the company understands when unexpected situations arise. As an elevated associate, I love the fact that my hours never change. The company is all about internal advancement.

    Cons

    They are not very flexible with off days during semi annual sale. If you work here most likely you will be working every Black Friday, day after Christmas, Memorial Day, and especially New Years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were always really great, they praised good work and never harshly gave criticism. They did give feedback but in a good manner. Also the work load is a lot, there's a lot of knowledge but as long as you know that going, it's not overwhelming and you learn most of it by time.

    Cons

    They always want you to work. Even when I had full availability I would never leave when I was suppose to. It can be very tiring and for the pay I was given did not feel worth it at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to think of your employees and they will in return be willing to give you what they can do. Be understanding that the work can be a lot and try and get people out when they are suppose to leave. Customers are everything but without good workers there is no customers, so think of the value you can get out of your employees, not just the end result.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the company philosophy of listen, connect and inspire both associates and customers. The company is very generous in giving you a sample or actual item for free or at a major discount of the new product coming out. This will let you speak on the item for personal testimony.

    Cons

    It's hard to get a work life balance. Paperwork is ridiculous, everyday I think each store kills a tree. On call shifts which associates can stand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take ownership in your team to create work life balance for your team. Promote within and show pt associates you are paying attention to what they are doing. Maintain communication with your team to make sure everyone is consistent in giving the same answers.
