Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

Interview

I was already a sales associate but they noticed hat I was good at selling bras and giving measurements. I was offered the position by my selling manager and she asked how I would feel working in the fitting room environment. I was used to selling but I wanted a change and I noticed the bonuses for bra specialist was different. Bra specialist make bonuses based on the percentage of bra sales for the month and since the main thing for the store is to drive bras so I went for it especially because of all the full time benefits since I was only part time.

Interview Questions

  • How would you link a customer that is looking at merchandise to the fitting room?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Lakeland, FL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    For myself it was a little bit more extensive because I spent so much time negotiating. The interviews were all very easy. Three overall for me; one of which was a group interview. And I did a lot if checking up on my application and basically going to talk to the manager about sales and experience. It's easy to get a job there but takes a bit more patience and persistence to get a good one. Don't sell yourself short and make very clear what you want from the company.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't anything to out of the ordinary for this job. Just your basic sales interview questions. Just make sure to really review as many sales tips as you can and talk about how you would sell the product and what makes you love it and you will easily impress the hiring manager. You could really impress them buy discussing how the sales numbers affect the stare's overall performance directly.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This is definitely a negotiating company. I was offered the position I applied for and then told it was unavailable and offered a much less desirable position which I turned down. I was then offered a different position which I only accepted after a lot of negotiating on hours and hourly pay rate. Do not sell your self short with this company. They will try to get you for a good "price" but if you show them how valuable you are to the company they will offer you something better.
