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

    Pros

    I loved this job. It was perfect for during college... An amazing management team, great gratises/deals for workers, awesome brand, but that's about where it ends. Most associates are just out of high school or finishing up a degree in college....

    Cons

    The hours were really sporadic for my store, the whole idea of SPAH and the force towards becoming selling based have really affected my feelings about the job, also the management program is less than desirable, pay is only minimum wage until you work there longer and get a small bump up.... until minimum wage goes up and you make the same as new hires again.
    Havng worked in a smaller level store, there weren't really full time positions other than holiday and management, which you can only apply for at certain times... To start the "AIM" program, you had to interview for it. If they didn't like you, you would get denied.

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

    Pros

    getting to try new products before they are available to the public, fun "girly" camaraderie with co-workers

    Cons

    rude and condescending customers, panty folding

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    relax on the dress code, part-time minimum wage positions should not require such strict dress codes, it is a burden to employees to spend so much of their money on work clothes.

    Pros

    Fast pace , learning everyday , meeting new people and building relationships with other sales associates and shoppers

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load is more then time allowed in a shift. The New SPAH incentive gets a little misunderstood between the sales associate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep asking how you can get to next, focus on what you can do , meet deadlines , and show passion in your role.
