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

    Pros

    Great discount, great people to work with, very organized and motivating company, and amazing products.

    Cons

    Is a little more involved than a normal retail job.

    Advice to Management

    My managers do a great job in motivating the associates and explaining things in a positive manner so help educate us more on the store. So there's nothing else I'd really say to change other than to keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We receive bonuses off of our sales every month, which is nice to see the hard work and deviation pay off. We also create long life customers through our customer service skills and product knowledge. We are trained and evaluated on a consistent basis.

    Cons

    It is hard advancing within the company on a corporate level coming from a store level. They also need to have more internships available for those who are interested in working with corporate.

    It was nice to have great managers, room to grow and a great store discount.

    Cons

    There are very inconvenient on call shifts, inconsistent hours and no personalization.

    Advice to Management

    You should have less employees and a more solid promise to giving the people you have a good amount of hours per week.
