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

    Pros

    I’ve met some great friends here. The work was manageable and fun. Working at VS means lots of FREE things especially for product launches.

    Cons

    Breaks are too short. Minimum break was 15 minutes which doesn’t give you time to rest, especially if you are on your feet all day. In my opinion, compensation was super low.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Promote from within.

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

    Pros

    A Beautiful place to work, okay discounts, all black dress code makes it easy to get ready for your shift.

    Cons

    Company is very unsure of what the customer wants. The brand is always changing, and makes it hard to keep up with how they want the storefronts to run. Work life balance ... you can forget it. There simple isn't any. Also not enough praise, or appreciation for those who go out of there way to work extra hours. Like 12 hour days.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of how you treat people, you never know what they were doing to hold your store together when you weren't looking.
