    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First of all, I was told to wear my best PINK outfit, so it is okay to wear leggings, or a t-shirt, but wear anything with the PINK logo. You do not have to wear all black if the interview is not for Victoria's Secret. I had two interviews, both were group interviews. The first interview was with an assistant manager and three other girls. The questions were mainly focused on getting to know us. One question that stood out to me was that he gave us a description of all the different positions available, and asked us what we felt we would be best fit for. He let us take turns speaking, so that was nice because everyone got to answer the question. The downside was that we had to wait for our turn in the order based on where we were sitting. I got a call back for the second interview after two weeks. The second interview was with the manager, but this time there were five other girls. It was conversational, and she would throw in scenarios that happen at the job and it was up to us to jump in and give an answer as to how we would act in the situation. Sometimes she would only hear one answer, and it was hard to tell her mood or reaction just from her facial expressions. The important thing is and my best tip is to make direct eye contact with the interviewer, nod your head to show that you are listening and are engaged, and be as outgoing as possible. They are looking for positive and bubbly energy at PINK (I only work for PINK, not VS) and they want friendly employees. If they want you to jump in to answer, try to be first as much as possible because they really want the outgoing employee that would jump on the chance to help a customer on the sight. After my second interview, I got an offer the day after. I hope this helps, good luck! Be patient, confident, and optimistic!

    Interview

    Fairly easy, it was a group interview it another girl and I plus one of the managers who did the interviewing. We would both answer the same question but then we would also get asked individual questions too.
