    work, life, balance. They've been working on it but it's still an opportunity. Work you to death sometimes. A lot of miscommunication with corporate and stores.

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret Stores (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, all the employees get along very well and we have a lot of fun together. Great perks too 30-50% discount plus some freebies, corporate really wants you to show off the clothes! Really easy for further opportunities and to move up positions within the company.

    Cons

    If you are closing there is really no set time you will be leaving. You work as a team to get the store cleaned up. You could be scheduled till 9pm but get out at 3am. This is specifically for the Mall of America Pink store so I am assuming it is less hectic other places.

    Love the personal connection with customers. The work environment with business partners are rewarding when your entire staff respects one another and we want to reach the same goals.

    Getting Events Team when working peak days to contribute a SPAH goal. Working holiday extended hours. Some associate do not enjoy having their schedule posted 3-4 weeks in advance, they tend to get their schedule covered a lot.
