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

    Pros

    - Different fashion area experience (bras, cashier, dressing room, beauty).
    - Generally good co-workers that are friendly enough.
    - Able to make a difference with customers (ie. help someone discover the proper size).

    Cons

    - You can get stuck in one area your whole shift.
    - Cross-training is something you need to speak up and ask.
    - Pay is so-so.
    - Managers are hit-or-miss. I've had great managers and miserable ones as well.
    - The headsets are pretty awful, too.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees to ensure they all get cross-trained and understand their job.


  2. "Do you like to color code panties all day?"

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get an employee discount (on anything that isn't already discounted) and you get to see new products before they hit the sale floor.

    Cons

    They told all of the seasonal people working shipping processing that we would be kept. They did not keep any of us. Also every time you get off work a manager has to check your purse or jacket.
     The managers also had arguments over what came first in the color code. Red or Pink? The world may never know.

    Advice to Management

    1. Trust your employees more
    2. Take the time to train your employees
