    Current Employee - Operations and Staffing Supervisor in Bethesda, MD

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

    Pros

    - Have the chance to meet a lot of different people as coworkers as well as clientele.
    - Learn a lot about different lingerie along with the "anatomy" of bras and the human body
    - Great benefits for both part time and full time employees that range from free merchandise and a generous discount
    - flexibility with scheduling

    Cons

    - Depending on management, the work environment can be either too demanding, or not serious enough
    - my store is lucky enough to not be 'cliquey' or 'catty', however I have seen other stores where it is present
    - there's actually a lot of possibilities for promotions, but they do not come up too often
    - of course, it's still retail; and schedules vary week to week and holidays can always have crazy work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be a bit more trained or screened better, as well as reprimanded for their mistakes
    - Otherwise, I definitely have a positive outcome for the future of this company

    Pros

    It is a great company to work for, because it takes care of its employees. Great culture, and big on building a cohesive unit.

    Cons

    Retail hours, non-commission. Typically and all-female staff and can require a lot of physical work especially during floor sets. Tile floors are very hard and bad on your back, but employees may not wear gym shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to all employees and figure out how different personalities can contribute to the team.
