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

    Pros

    Just experienced my first Black Friday retail experience as a Victoria's Secret employee...I was expecting it to be pure hell but it was a lot of fun! Sure, it was chaos, but it was organized chaos and we were all just as excited about the deals (I snagged a few of them before we opened our doors on Thanksgiving) as the customers!!

    There wasn't much time for training prior to Thanksgiving but I was lucky enough to pick up a few shifts beforehand and I learned a ton. Everyone is so sweet and genuinely loves working there. It's so rewarding to make everyone feel amazing who comes into our store!! The fun seriously never stops, even when we're working until 3 am of have to start working at 5. We bring our coffee, throw on some music, and have a blast making our store beautiful and scoping out the latest merchandise. I never want to leave!!!

    The discounts and freebies are pretty legit too 😉

    Cons

    None, every shift is a learning experience!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Love ♡ love ♡ love this job!!!

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

    Pros

    As far as retail goes this will probably be one of the best you will experience. Not saying it's the happiest place on Earth, but as far as retail goes this is one of the better places to work.

    You get free things.

    Incentives instead of commission driven environment

    Believes in rewarding performance

    Cons

    Gets quite political in this specific store, that's if you go higher up the ladder. Though I suppose that's everywhere.

    General retail woes

    Advice to Management

    Calm down.. quit the power struggle and focus on the same goal.

    Pros

    Love helping customers find what they want and need. Pay offered was an improvement from my previous job. Flexible scheduling based off of when you can work. Demanding, but rewarding.

    Cons

    My location did not offer commission. Rough holiday shifts, i.e. Thanksgiving I worked 5pm to 1:30am, although I did receive pay and a half.
