    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is the best. Working in a positive environment and the training opportunities are great.

    Cons

    I struggled with the work-life balance while working here. The scheduling online is a little complicated and difficult to change availability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend allowing authority with responsibility and accountability according to job requirements. When everyone is completing their task the group as a whole works better.

    Pros

    The company and company atmosphere is awesome. Everyone has and knows their job so there's no confusion. I like the organization and the fact that the stress level of the employees are low and so are attitudes. Everyone is quite respectful.

    Cons

    The nature of the job itself - if considering this role is quite slow. You have some busy days and VERY slow moving days. Hopefully you're the mind of person who values down time because it could be frustrating, surprisingly.

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

    Pros

    -Friendly, supportive staff
    -Lots of training
    -Promotion opportunities
    -Great discount and free items often

    Cons

    -I don't agree with some of the company's morals
    -Pushes the Angel Credit Card WAY too hard
    -Some management uses unfavorable sales approaches, making customers uncomfortable
    -Some management bully associates
    -Raises are unheard of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (Specific to my store #0816) Managers, stop being cliquey, stop pushing customers into buying things they don't want or need, stop taking advantage of young and naive girls, stop making fun of your loyal associates for their out of work hobbies. This is retail, not the military.

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    The actual company takes care of their employees and of course the discount is a plus. I like that they give you discount on products, sometimes even free, so you can fully understand the product you are selling

    Cons

    This may vary per store but at the store I worked at the management was horrible.

    Pros

    Discount! Wonderful group of diverse girls/women who if you work there long enough become family. Management is flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    Work is tedious. If you can't be on your feet for man than 5 hours don't apply. Also, if you have never had a job before, don't apply here. What makes the company strong and fun to work in, is when everyone works together! Anyone on a team that is not going to work slows everyone down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire individuals who have a sense of customer service and who are driven to work.
