    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

    Interview

    although i did know someone within the store already, she really only got me an interview and of course i had to get the job myself. they called and scheduled an interview which was a group interview when i showed up. i was nervous because i didnt have previous retail experience BUT neither did the rest of the group i was with so once i figured that out i felt less nervous.
    although its cliche, for this type of interview truly be yourself and stand out in a positive way, it was revealed to me later they look for positive people who have a growth mindset.
    WEAR ALL BLACK and a cute necklace/shoes
    once i was called for a second interview employees were talking to my interviewer beforehand and were commenting that i made their dress code which put a great impression already for this second interview.
    the second interview was one-on-one with the store manager and i truly loved her and felt comfortable. overall she explained to me she remembered me from the first interview and just wanted to get to know me. We would talk and occasionally she would asked me interview questions, but they were simple questions. then in the same interview she told me they would notify me when i will train and i got the job! good luck

WEAR ALL BALCH BUSINESS CASUAL. This is what an employee would wear and they love to see that you already fit the part. Be enthusiastic, while waiting for the interview, interact with other workers, if they like you they are most likely going to tell the interviewer that you are a likeable sociable person.

    Sales Associate and Sales Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out the application and got call that there was a hiring event for majority of the stores in the city between 9 am-12pm.

    It was a bunch of other applicants waiting I the back room as well. The first person I met was the same person who called for me to come in. She was super sweet and I usually get nervous during interviews but she was so fun and smiled the whole time, so I did fine. She told me to go to the back room and wait.

    After all the other applicants were interviewed by her another manager came to get everyone and brought us to another office there were three managers including the one to get us. They had each of us speak individually in front of each other about our prior job experiences. They ask each and everyone of us different questions based off what we said about our experience. All three of the managers were extremely nice (all from different stores)

    I received a call to come in for another interview with the general manager of the store, he was also very nice. He asked me general interview questions and basically added onto the other managers questions.
