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

Pros

30% discount for associates at VS, PINK, and Bath and Body Works
Free seasonal bra (if they have your size) and free perfume samples
Ability to make good hours if you have good availability
AIM program (associates interested in management)
If you move anywhere in the country where there's a store, you can transfer (good job security)

Cons

In smaller stores, not much opportunity for growth
No commission
They don't fire employees or discontinue seasonal employees if work isn't up to standards
Store standards change weekly/Too much product knowledge required
Mostly girls can get really catty

Advice to Management

Don't let personal get in way of business

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

    Pros

    Awesome employee perks - 30% discount, freebies every month, $10-$20 bundles of new items
    Great brand, easy to sell

    Cons

    Doesn't train employees well, but expect the workers to be perfect
    Lack of communication
    Inevitable gossip and drama

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees more. Though appearance is important, try to make them want to come in dressed their best because you make them feel their best rather than telling them they dont fit in. Honey works better than vinegar. Support the work they do right rather than only acknowledging them when they mess up. I liked working here, but I was never able to talk to my manager about how to improve, she just yelled at me when I messed up. The manager had high expectations, but I wished she would have been nicer to me. She seemed to have favorites that hardly worked, I actually wanted to learn. Had she tried to get to know me more and coach me even a little, I would have been more inclined to help her store succeed because she helped me.

    Pros

    You get a discount on merchandise and gratis' which include a free seasonal bra and/or highly discounted bra, panty, perfume etc. You can also continue to use your Angel Rewards.

    Cons

    The managers in my store are rude, stuck up and have attitudes. They talk down to the associates. There was recently a "meeting" after an 11 hour shift in which the associates felt personally attacked by the managers. An associate started crying.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your associates with respect.
