    I have been working at Victoria's Secret part-time

    Pros

    Room for growth but money and who can get credit cards dictates the whole business.

    Cons

    Commission used to be 7% of monthly sales when I started, it's now 5-4% and is barely 200$ extra a month. My pay has gone down my $5000 a year since I started there. This position doesn't even exist anymore because they don't want to pay the commission .
