    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!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret (Ventura, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online for seasonal job, got called a few weeks later to come in for interview and there was one other girl there. Answered simple questions, lasted 5-10 mins. Said we should hear a call back to interview with hiring manager. two days later i get a call to come in the next day. Once i got there for interview, she had girls waiting in the store and walking around and was bringing them back one by one. so making us wait. Keep in mind, the interview was on a friday, so after we are done she told me that I should hear back by monday. So i wait over the weekend and i get nothing. I call wednesday for application status and she told me a manager would call me back. A day later, i still get nothing. this possibly could be the worst application process ever in this company and you could at least call me back and tell me i didn’t make the position instead of just not calling at all.
