  3. "Good First Job, but sometimes emotionally demanding."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Bellevue, WA

    I worked at Victoria's Secret part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The managers were lovely as well as the other employees. Very flexible and understanding with which positions/shifts you want. Managers stick up for you against customers.

    Cons

    You have to 'warm up' for 15 minutes before your shift and can't clock in for that time. The customers can be very aggressive and entitled which is hard to work with. The 3 no rule to get credit card sign ups is a bit awkward and can lead to confrontation from customers.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Victoria's Secret part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    •Discounts are good. •Monthly perks are helpful.

    Cons

    •Extremely racist company - if you are dark skinned and actually manage to get a position here it’s only because they need to put up a temporary front. The manager told me “ALL blacks are thief's and need to be watched at all times.” •High sales goals for basic pay with no benefits. •They put you at part-time with full time hours so they don’t have to offer benefits. •HR will not support you or investigate harassment cases, they protect management regardless of the situation. •HORRIBLE policy management. •Time and attendance policy gives NO room for real life situations, verified illnesses, Family crises and emergencies. UNLESS you are management, they do what they want regardless. •”Strict policy against retaliation” is never enforced. •If your are not one of the top sales performer they give you bare minimum hours. •The time I was employed there I was the stores top sales performer, there was no benefits or pay raise at all. They do not appreciate their sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Stalking African Americans in the store, kicking them out and calling security when they have done nothing out of the ordinary is NOT ok! It seriously needs to stop and the miss treatment isn’t ok either. Equal opportunity policy needs to be enforced immediately as well, colored people are still humans. An employer shouldn’t be able to consider someone’s race when deciding to hire them like Victoria Secret does. Management needs to be way more consistent with policies and procedures per the handbook. EXAMPLE: They enforce write ups for being even a minute late or missing shift regardless if you found someone to cover your shift! Yet, per policy(depending on length of shift) you are granted multiple breaks. Management will NOT honor those breaks. You are lucky if they give you time to use the bathroom or get a drink of water.
