    Pros

    Competitive pay, free stuff all the time, excellent benefits, your coworkers become family, fixed scheduling for management.

    Cons

    If you don't like your management team or district manager you will hate your job. Management makes or breaks your experience.

    Advice to Management

    We strongly need yearly or even half yearly HR courses. Some management are very unprofessional and go unchecked for far too long, causing loss of TOP TALENT. With all the classes and planning sessions we desperately need this.

    Pros

    The discount is a plus, but that's just another reason that give you to shop there. Also if you are a regular employee meaning not seasonal you get monthly bonuses.

    Cons

    Management is horrible! They are rude and act as if they have no regards for the employes who do most of the selling. Also I believe that they should give sale associates commission on their sales because their goals are so high. My goal was about 2,000 dollars min every shift i worked. The pay a little next to nothing and hound you about making sales.

    Advice to Management

    Help make sales! Appreciate the employees and stop with the attitudes its bad enough its mostly girls work there all day everyday.

    Pros

    Pros of working at Victoria's Secret are pay are really good with benefits for full time workers, experience of working for the company and its standards are awesome, and my co workers without I wouldn't be able to be a better leader that I am now.

    Cons

    Very few cons but the biggest cons would be some of the most challenging work and very hectic schedules. Even though at the end of the day you will realize it was worth it.

    Pros

    It will all depend on the management at your store, but I was lucky and had great leadership. The training was great and came with a workbook to help you remember the new VS language.

    Cons

    When you are part time, the hours aren't very good. Luckily, they are getting rid of the "call in's".

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people, they will feel like you actually care.

    Pros

    If you're looking for easy, this isn't the job for you. We are reinventing retail and are all about having a high performance selling culture at all levels. Being a Store Manager for Victoria's Secret is challenging but continually stimulates my thinking and leadership skills. I grow everyday. I never thought I would find a career I love so much!

    Cons

    Work life balance could be a challenge as a Store Manager, but if you develop your team to be true business owners, this won't be a problem.

    Pros

    Amazing brand with a great product. Enjoyed the job responsibilities and the training that I received while working there. Discount was great and so was the perks of being a manager.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be a politics game when seeking promotions
