    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    very good outlook of opportunity to grow.
    they want to hire from within and offer management classes (AIM) to help you.
    don't necessarily need a certain degree just the right skill set(s).

    Cons

    long hours, always moving and exhausted, very competitive and lucrative business

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

    Pros

    Great bra training, aim program is designed to hire within the company, discounts, free bra incentives

    Cons

    In my store if you don't make sales we cut hours. That means on slow days you have less people trying to clean the store at night. The schedule never reflected the hours you really worked. Management would always ask you to stay later if payroll allows it so it is hard to have a personal life. Management made the schedule only a week in advance so if you have to make plans last minute it is hard to find someone to cover for you. High turn over rate meant constantly training people that would quit two weeks later. Floor sets never allow you to get a good sleep schedule. I would work from 6pm till 2 am and have to go to a meeting at 8 am.

    Advice to Management

    Plan the schedules three weeks ahead! When you interview people let then know what they are really signing up for so that way they don't quit two weeks later.
