Working there it was fun learned a lot met some nice people. Their was a lot of favouritism going on when it came to certain things but overall it was ok environment to work in Would’ve been nice to transfer to another location since my store location closed down jobless now
My experience at Victoria's Secret was somewhat marred by the people working there--depending on who you worked with (and how they felt about you based off of first impressions alone), you could either have a good experience or a bad one.
The fellow employees were stuck up snobs. They would give you something to do and then once you've almost completed the task they would run over and point out every single tiny mistake, such as: the bras aren't straight, the panties are bunches.
You get to work around beautiful bras and panties all day, every shift.
Snobby and ignorant co-workers.

Maintaining the store is important. The way you look is important as well, you must look professional and approachable. I learned how to appeal to customers and make the sales that were required of me. Management sucks. They're very inconsiderate to most workers -- favoritism is obvious. Racism is huge there, the second an ethnic customer walks in, we are to follow them around because according to managers, they may steal. A lot of coworkers there are untrustworthy - i.e. they will steal your sales without the bat of an eyelash and although the managers are aware, they do nothing. In fact, they punish you for "not meeting up to sales requirements" although they know you did. The managers watch you through cameras all the time. Such an awful place. Only enjoyable part of the job was leaving.
Sometimes we have Potlucks.
Very stressful, to the point where it's too much. Also a lot of untrustowrthy coworkers.
Victoria's Secret offers positions that allow individuals to work alone and as a team, doing fun, rewarding services for customers. We have set goals, and many ways to manage those goals. It is a social job, you meet many kinds of people, spend a lot of time cleaning/organizing. Management could use some work, however, company policy is always very strict, which is beneficial. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the public. The most enjoyable is helping women feel better about themselves, and working along some wonderful people.
Many breaks, discounts, incentives
Short shifts, odd hours
Staff is not friendly, a lot of cliques and gossip during work. Overall made it not a comfortable and accepting environment. Was difficult to book time off work and had very little to be happy about when working bad hours with little shifts per week.
Working for the company itself was great. They give you a gratis when you first start which includes a bunch of free merchandise, as well as free clothing items every couple of months for employees. The discount itself wasn't bad either. Although it's a great place to work and staff themselves are really friendly, the managers can be stuck-up and rude. You always feel watched and untrusted and as if they are talking down to you. They also cut hours, and when you ask for an explanation, they can't give you one.
Free clothes every few months, discount
Typical day shift at Victoria's Secret consists of: Opening and Closing Cleaning and re-organizing store merchandise (especially at cash) Understanding how to properly size women and fit them into their desired bra. Hardest part of the job is understanding not all women like fancy lingerie, therefore it is not in your best interest to start discussing pricey underwear and bras, as you may lose them at a customer.
Working at Victoria Secret equipped me with the skills to engage and service different types of people. Each day new customers come into the store with completely different needs and as a sales associate it is my job to find out exactly what that need is. A typical day at work involves conversing with customers, both prospective and definite, and making sure that their style requests are being met to the best of the company's ability. Ringing through sales and engaging with customers at the cash wrap is also part of a typical day, as well as replenishing merchandise and keeping the store organized and tidy. The management at Victoria Secret is very efficient and knowledgeable which makes for a very informed team. The managers are friendly and always take time to give feedback and offer support. The hardest part of the job is overcoming styling barriers. It's not always that you are able to give someone the exact product that they want and so it can be a challenge finding them something similar that will fit their needs. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a team of people who are driven and know their craft well.
Don't always finish at scheduled time
Worked all positions. Enjoyed my morning shifts as they went quick and were full of stock and the last hour our so was on the floor with the customers. Afternoons and evenings consists of stocking as you go, helping customers, bra fittings, and even after hours "Store Set-ups" (Ex:10PM-2AM)
Dress code and your clothing discounts.
Store set up are done after hours at odd times.
The work itself was very straightforward, but I felt as if the other employers were not very accepting, and not able to let me be alone to do my job. Instead, they hovered and watched my every move not trusting that I could do what I was told, which made me very uncomfortable. The group of people that were already working there when I went in were not very accepting of new employees and made me feel out of place.
A typical day at work includes folding, sorting, and putting away lingerie. I learned how manipulative time can be. It either slows down or speed up and in this case, it slows down. I think the hardest part of my job is working with time because work is predictable and one will find oneself doing the same thing over and over again, and which makes it difficult to look forward to going to work. However, my friendly co-workers make the long hours bearable.
a lot of measuring and shelf-organizing involved; some heavy lifting of merchandise in the back rooms. management and coworkers are amazing. hardest part would be cleaning up after the customers' mess. enjoyable part would be the discounts on products.
Typical, there store was a fast-paced environment, but the job was enjoyable. I loved being able to assist customers into their desired products, as well as inspiring them to try new products. I learned how to cater to the needs of other people while still being able to help them explore new options. I learned how to work at my best in my own unique way, which enabled me to work at my best potential. My managerial staff was wonderful. They were approachable, and I felt comfortable asking them questions. They gave great constructive criticism and were very discrete and professional when it came to my performance. I had friendly, supportive coworkers who quickly became workplace friends. I was able to rely on them, and we all worked well together as a team to ensure the store was running as smoothly as possible. The hardest part of the job was to book days off. We were asked to book weeks to months in advance. And although we were often over-staffed, it was difficult to receive even a couple of days, and often times, it was denied. It was especially stressful when trying to book times off for school exams or for vacation time.
Awesome working environment with an equally wonderful team
Not really any cons. Just difficulty booking time off.
A lot of standing, and interacting with people you wear all black so it's very slick but over all it can be a nice place to work
