I have been working at Victoria's Secret full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Unique co-workers, friendly staff and discounted high-end merchandise. Great for students who need a little extra income and enjoy working around a lot of people. Strong culture of honesty and integrity, which is useful to grow a well-rounded member of society and prepare them for their next job!

Cons

Management treats associates as incredibly expendable assets, randomized work schedule that does not allow for a steady life (hard to ballance with another job, or school, or personal life for that matter). Pay is minimal for amount of work done, and internal mobility is practically unheard of unless you're favored by management.

One red-flag: High Employee Turnover rate.

Advice to Management

Invest more time in training your associates, and stop being so condescending when engaging them in any form of conversation. It will dramatically improve your employee turnover rate.
