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

Pros

the management was awesome. they told you what they wanted done and were very nice about it. it was like a family, all my co-workers worked together. there was no unnecessary competition. i also got free bras and underwear sometime make up and lotion.

Cons

moving up in the company wasnt easy, and associate's stay for a while one lady had worked there for 7 years and hadnt been promoted. but if you are looking for a job for the summer or something or just even a second job i would recommend this one

Advice to Management

i would have wanted a more consistent schedule

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the discounts, and my store had really awesome coworkers, but thats it.

    Cons

    Hours were scarce, scheduling varied too much for a busy mom also in college, on calls are a waste of time planning for since you never end up working, for all my experience in sales, I didn't feel like I was paid enough, sales goals were ridiculous, I couldn't get management to listen to me when I asked to be put in the fitting room to help me get my training, and I wasn't comfortable with how I was expected to make sales…..forcing customers into getting the Angel Card or adding matchback panties and/or more bras to the sale when they're already so expensive is disconcerting. As a sales associate I ended up getting more experience doing Brand Guide(resetting store displays) shifts then shifts out on the floor… I honestly would rather that have been my position, definitely would be less stressful. Store manager also seemed to dislike me, wasn't very approachable or a good listener, gave no praise for adding on to sales or getting tasks done ahead of schedule, was constantly harassing me if I wasn't up customers butts all the time…just too much stress for a retail position.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be anonymously surveyed on how well they value not only their job but how they feel about their management, training needs to be more efficient/consistent, more hours for employees willing to work, set shifts for employees that need them
