Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Duluth, GA) in May 2017.

Interview

I applied in March ( I actually forgot that I applied at all because almost 3 months have passed), got a called for an interview last Friday (May 19th) for an interview on Monday (Yesterday, May 22nd) and was told that I would get a call by this Saturday and if not then I should call them on the following Monday. I got a call the next day (today, May 23rd) and was told that I'll start on Sunday! One of the easiest interviews I've done.

    One on one interview that lasted about 15 minutes. Since I was seasonal, I didn't get any of the character questions others are listing. Basically just asking about my experience and comfortability.

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Wellington, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was a group interview which I was nervous about. But it really wasn't that bad at all. It was comforting. My advice is to make yourself stand out. Volunteer to answer the questions and don't wait to be called on. Try to show passion and enthusiasm for the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Dallas, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call about a week and a half later. I had my interview that same day because it was the time that was best for both the manager and I. I was asked about my availability and what I expected from working in the store. I got the job that same day and I started the next day. They offered me to work that same night, but I wasn't able to. Overall, the environment felt good and the people who worked there seemed kind and easy to get along with.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in November 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out an application on a Wednesday, called to check on application on Monday, scheduled an interview for later that day, and was offered the position the next day. Interview was very laid back. More like a conversation than interview.

    Negotiation

    I received the hourly rate I asked for but I'm pretty sure that's just what they pay associates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (San Bernardino, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a hiring event in the mall for Victoria Secret. It took over an hour just to wait with the other women who was also applying. By that time, I was feeling discouraged. It was a group interview with at least 5 people. It was a easy interview though. We went around answering different questions from each person.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I came late to the interview but was lucky enough to still be let in. I was asked about what I study in college and we got into a whole conversation about my major and got off topic. Then I asked about how the commission worked and mentioned my previous salesman job since I missed the portion about work experience.
