    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great managament and great co workers. They worked with school schedules and family occasions.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't the best and growth is difficult in this company. The hours are terrible, but it is retail and they abide by mall hours.

    Advice to Management

    Loved management and how they respected employees.

    Pros

    positive experience, I was hired seasonally but after two months i was given a hefty raise and they told me they wanted to keep me after the season ended. fast paced so time goes by quickly, hours are convenient for being in college, easy interview, great people to work with

    Cons

    not a lot of training and then thrown onto the floor one of my managers is really lazy and disappears to the back for 30 minutes at a time and refuses to answer my questions.

    Advice to Management

    have better training

    Pros

    Discount PTO Benefits Tuition Reimbursement Takes care of employees

    Cons

    Rude customers, you'll get that in any retail job though. Have to basically take every return, they need a stricter return policy.

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

    Pros

    The company takes pretty good care of their employees with the pay, general discount and special monthly discounts. I have learned a lot about customer service and the importance of it from working here. If you want to work a lot of hours, generally you will get them.

    Cons

    The company and managers expect you to give your arm and leg to the company. Some customers can be rude about how strict the company is with coupons. The company has intensified their selling to customers which can make employees feel pressured and stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative and sensitive to employees feelings and hard work. Don't tell them what to do or make them feel like their life is on the line when selling.
