It took place in one of the back offices of the store. The store manager was very friendly and provided a positive and relaxed environment. 4 questions were asked (including 2 of the managers favorite company values) and we were allowed to answer in any order. When asking the interviewer some questions, she mentioned that it is the most difficult job she has ever had.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online via brand website and received a call a couple of days later to discuss my availabity and understanding of the seasonal position. Was asked a few interview questions and was asked to come in for a group interview. I asked what the dress would be for the interview and she said you don't need to come in all business professional. Dress code is black, so come wearing your most fashionable black attire.
    My group interview consisted of 4 people
    and we were told they had just completed 3 other group interviews that day as well.
    When arriving they have you walk the store until the interview starts. Use this time to show how easy you are to talk to strangers. Chat with the other interviewees. The manager was definitely watching! After a few minutes we were taken into the back office and sat down in an L shaped seating. The manager went over the position, introduced the assistant manager and informed us that we would all be given the chance to answer each question.
    Questions went around and if someone hadn't answered you were called upon to give an answer if you had one. One girl consistently had to be called upon and funny thing was is she always had an answer. I don't know if it was wise for her to have been so quiet.
    Afterward we were given the chance to ask our questions. Think of your question before going in. Make it a genuine question that has to do with the company. "How much is the pay?" Is an alright question but "I love VS products, so I can't help but wonder how difficult it is to sell a product that in my opinion sells itself?" is a MUCH better question! You are there because you want the job and you know the pay is probably at minimum or a little above. Ask a question that will truly benefit you. Shows you are prepared to learn.
    That night I got a call offering me the position. Good luck!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret (Fresno, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and received a call for an interview about a week later. My interview was the very next day at 5:15. It was fairly easy, I was interviewed by the general manager and she asked me 3 behavioral questions pertaining to my experience (or lack thereof). We walked around the store to meet the employees working that hour so I can get a feel of what they do every day and what their job entails. It was really cool! She asked for my availability and if I was okay with changing jobs and duties and working late at night and early in the morning for receiving shipments and I said yes, I was available and okay with that. I asked her 2 questions: one on any chances of seasonal associates turning into permanent hires and if she liked working there. Then she told me that she'd let me know by Thursday if I got hired. Today is the following day after the interview and I was received a call at 10 in the morning saying I got the job!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret (Dallas, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to VS and they gave me a call approximately a week later. They called for an interview 2 days later and when I went in it ended up being a group interview (which wasn't mentioned) but it turned out pretty easier than a 1-1 interview in my opinion. After the interview, she said she'd call two days later after all her other interviews but she called me back the next evening. Overall I'd give an 8/10 process.
