    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in March 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out an app around March 9. The following Saturday I got a call asking me to come in for an interview the next day. It was a group interview, me and seven other girls. Basic interview questions. That Monday I got a call asking me to come in for a second interview. She pretty much asked the same questions. I thought I did fine until I got an automated email saying they were continuing on with other candidates. What a waste of my time 😒

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Made me uncomfortable - it seemed like the recruiter already made her decision on me as an applicant before she even asked me any questions. She asked why I left my previous role and to "walk me through your resignation and how that happened," as if she wanted the whole play-by-play. Excuse me? So unprofessional. Glad it didn't work out.

    • So you resigned? Your manager was okay with that? Walk me through your resignation and how that happened.   Answer Question

    Store Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Johnson City, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Let me start off by saying, this was a group interview. I was not informed of this and it blindsided me. I am glad I did not get the job though... Sales work...meaning you have quotas that you cannot meet and thus are fired. I interviewed here and the recruiter was rude. She was smart enough not to say anything, but her actions spoke volumes. It was clear from the beginning who she would hire. The interviewer snubbed a 40 something woman and myself from the get go as she immediately asked a new question once her thin blonde interviewee and her obvious chosen one had answered. It felt like an immense waste of my time. But I was willing to let it go up until I caught her shooting me the up and down glance that thin women give to women of size. Even in letting me know I did not get the job, they were rude and tacky. They sent me an email at three in the morning the day after I was supposed to hear back. That was the final straw. I will not be working there, obviously, but my business and the business of all my friends will be going to Torrid and other friendly establishments.

    Interview

    I got a phone call around 11:30 asking if I could come in for an interview at 1:30, and the lady on the phone asked me a few basic screening questions, such as why I wanted to work at Victoria Secret, my availability, what do you think is the requirement to work there, etc. Then I proceeded to a back office once I got there, and sat down across from the inteviewer in an office chair. There, she began to ask me some basic questions, such as previous work experience, why I would be a good fit for VS, and how I feel about being able to do bra fitting on customers. The whole interview lasted about 15 minutes or so.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Victoria's Secret online. This is my second time interviewing with them within the past 2 months. It was me and one other candidate interviewing for the position. The manager asked basic sales questions. If you have retail experience or any type of customer service background, this interview will be easy for you. They also asked questions about handling different situations. The manager asked for our references and that was the end of the interview. The manager stated she would contact our references then contact us. She gave us a time frame between Monday and Tuesday, but I never heard back. Don't waste your time interviewing with them. This is the second time I haven't been offered the position and I have years of retail experience.
