I love it.

Flex Associate (Current Employee)
Muskegon, MI

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

ProsEveryone is so friendly and get along great. There's a really strong team bond and it's a very comfortable work environment and I look forward to going to work every day.

ConsIt really gets under my skin when we have shoplifters come in and do fraudulent returns. I hate knowing that they get away with stealing money from the company and we can't do anything about it even when it's clear they did not purchase the merchandise.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe biggest problem I had was when I got hired; I applied in the summer for SAS and after my interview no one contacted me for about a month and when they finally did call me I had gotten another job. I then applied for Holiday and I had to keep calling to find out what was going on. From my experience the hiring process is not very organized and it is very stressful for the one being hired.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pink and Beauty Category Supervisor (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time for more than 5 years

ProsMobile. You can move to almost any city and work for this company. I have worked for VS since 2009. As my main career has relocated me, I haev satyed with VS through 4 states. Gotta love it! I get a massive discount on my wireless bill, free flu shots, free and discounted product. 401k and stock as well. They even offered me pet insurance. I started as a regular associate, became a staffing and operations coordinator, then moved to bra specialist. After that I was promoted to Pink and Beauty Category Supervisor.

ConsTeenage drama occurs more often than not. They are serious about availability. There is no playing with that.

Advice to Senior ManagementI love my 401k and associate stock purchase plan. But, had I not been management, would it have been offered?

GREAT COMPANY TO WORK FOR!

Store Manager (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVS recognizes talent and as long as the individual can learn from coaching and feedback can really grow with the company. I started as a sales associate and worked my way up to a store manager. The company is a great brand to work for and has the best company values. VS is a world wide recognized brand and continues to be a pace setter for the retail industry. I think it is a really fun company to work for.

ConsGoods and bads to working with all females the majority of the time.

Good place to work when in college

PINK Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Eatontown, NJ

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

ProsGreat place to work. Get to wear the merchandise while working...which I love! Great discounts. Good management staff. Everyone works as a team.

ConsLots of sales and promotions. It gets hard to keep track especially when I have my studies to keep up with.

Advice to Senior ManagementI've heard some stores have issues with the leadership in their stores. For that I say that management needs to value their employees a little more than they do.
