    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    the discount was great and the management was amazing. It may of just been my store but honestly the management seemed to care about me personally and I worked two jobs at the time and they were extremely flexible with my hours even letting me miss a shift if I got called into my other job (I'm a manager there).

    Cons

    Overall I quit because retail wasn't for me and I had a better opportunity at my other job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep caring for your employees it will get you far.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    -great atmosphere
    -competitive work environment
    -easy to move up in the company
    - flexible hours
    -great benefits, 30% discount plus multiple free items and cheap items throughout the year
    -managers are really involved!

    Cons

    -employers sometimes expect too much from minimum wage employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just suggest that the management provide ways for cashiers to get bonuses! The sales associates do, but I think sales associates should get bonuses depending on how many angel cards they get per month or something like that.
