    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time

    Pros

    + Great staff! Both the managers and other employees want to help you teach you if you are willing to learn - easy to make friends :)
    + Great training for someone new to retail - I was hired as a holiday associate and kept on after the season was done - I very rarely felt like I couldn't ask someone for help even during really busy times
    + Good with allowing time off - just have to communicate with them in advance

    Cons

    - Sometimes the sales floor gets tense when people think you were trying to 'steal their sale'
    - For a retail job the managers expect a lot out of you (which isn't necessarily a bad thing) but there have been many times when I have closed and was scheduled till 10 but didn't get out till 11:30pm - same with floorsets - scheduled till 2am but didn't leave till 4am. But the people are nice and working the extra hours is good too so that makes it bearable!

    Advice to Management

    Allow more hours for floorsets/ schedule more people so we aren't getting out at 4am or later

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    The interview takes place in a group setting. There is one interviewer and approximately 5 interviewees. They go round table with the same questions for everyone, so you need to make sure your answers are different.
