    Pros

    Working towards commission based company, good incentives for employees, part time hours average out at around 25

    Cons

    Hard to move up in company, and their is no commission set up for generalist positions and other positions have had opportunities for commission for over a year. It is also difficult to enforce company policies in regards to customers when the company turns around and gives the customer exactly what they train you not to do (coupons, taking back old bras, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for employees to move up

    I have been working for Victoria's Secret for about 3 months now, and it is absolutely amazing!! It is honestly such a great company to work for. You get really great gratis throughout the month, and all the employees are super nice. I love working here!

    Customers can be annoying, but that is just retail not Victoria's Secret specifically.
