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

Pros

Fast paced environment, fun people around you while you work both customers and employees. Its easy to built a passion for the company and the people on your team. Very easy to stand out and move up in the company.

Cons

The passion you build for the company is not mutual, the efforts of MOST of the employees is not compensated correctly through payment. Time invested in the development of the business and team, is not recognized.

Advice to Management

Consider some more intense training for Management Team, as other companies are successfully rolling out. Appreciate the hourly part-time associates, the company and Managers ask a lot from them and we do not compensate accordingly.

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

    Pros

    Discount.
    Flexible hours.
    Co-workers are so friendly.

    Cons

    No room for advancement.
    Management is pretty awful.
    Sales trackers are annoying when we don't even get commission!
    Low pay.
    Crazy hours.
    Over staffed so short shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over staff. Most girls working here are college students and 10 hours a week doesn't do much for us. Longer shifts would be ideal instead of 4 hours. Be professional! Management is constantly gossiping about the girls that work there! To get any kind of elevated position you have to be best friends with the store manager in our store. She hires who she likes NOT who's best for the position. The store is ran sloppy and they try to create structure in all the wrong ways! Turn over rate has been high as of lately. That speaks more of management than of the employees. Overall if the VS you work for has a good management team then you'll enjoy your job. Co-workers become more like family and you have fun. That was the atmosphere before our store was taken over by new management.
