Chef d'équipe (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 19 February 2018
I remember this day; it's was the walk sales day on St-Catherine street. Almost all the stores were outside trying to attract clients. This was one of the best days at work, we had a DJ and pizza for the whole staff. Victoria's Secret is a big family, and we all had fun trying to help clients. It was also very nice because I had the opportunity to help my colleagues whenever they needed me. I was in charge of a certain amount of people and I had to be alert of everything happening in my designated zone. I was able to handle all the pressure while giving the best customer service. As my team says, All in We win!
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 February 2018
Most enjoyable part of the job would've been the free items we would get and the fun videos/meetings! I was a sales representative and I enjoyed being able to talk to certain customers (most didnt want to talk though.)
Sales (Former Employee) – Canada – 2 February 2018
I wouldn't recommenced the bra specialist position unless you actually have a discussion about the position with management, especially about pay. Only making minimum wage in the position where you do more then the average sales associate is not right. Management can be shady about pay and contracts, so protect your self.
Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 31 January 2018
I 've learned many skills throughout two years while I was working at V.S as a sales specialist.
My location was at the flagship store where has strong management and leadership, because most of my leaders were fully experienced in the management/customer service/retail .
Learned how to do multi-tasking, gained strong interpersonal & communication skills because you need to deal with the total of more than 50+ customers per shift.
If you have an outgoing personality or professional attitude, you will succeed achieving high net sales, but if you are not, you will not get any incentives. You must hit $250 Selling Per hour(SPH) to get extra $$ in your pay cheque.
Discounts/ Hiring gratis/ monthly gratis
SSG/ no incentitive/ little pressure/ too much work

Store Setup Clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 January 2018
This was a very hard job considering the people were not the nicest. They were a little controlling but it gave me a good example of how hard jobs are and how to effectively put yourself to work no matter what the circumstances.
Sales & Support Generalist (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 26 January 2018
I love the merchandising aspect of Victoria's Secret. Was there for a short time but amazing people to work with, everyone was very welcoming and the team supported each other, even though we each had individual goals. Fast-paced environment with big store goals. Be ready to deal with a large volume of customers.

Visual/Stock Lead (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 11 January 2018
The company is good, however the management was the worst. They were rude and unprofessional. They expected us to work 24/7 and disregarded the fact we all had lives outside of work. They were constantly budding their heads in to our personal life and threaten us all the time about coming in to work. We had managers call us on our day off to yell at us why we were not at work even though they did scheduale us off that day. It was a very unhealthy, stressful place to be at. Terrible environment!
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Dieppe, NB – 9 January 2018
I love the other employees, the teamwork, the clothing and the hours offered, however it was seasonal. I would have enjoyed staying on and working full time hours but I was so thankful for the opportunity.
Sales Special (Former Employee) – Pointe-Claire, QC – 29 December 2017
Sales associates are catty with one another and there is always drama. The majority of the managers are so full of themselves and have obvious favorites that the job is not enjoyable. The hours are crazy. I was constantly overworked. I work full time to overtime while I was a part-time employee. The perks made it worth it and the few awesome managers.
Brand Guide (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 December 2017
I worked there a long time ago, opened the Kingway location. Store was full of great managers and staff was friendly. great working environment. Staff seem to be less helpful when I go in to the location now.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 December 2017
The managers are rude, they don't give you enough hours due to the amount of staff there is, don't recommend. You barely get to know management, its like a different world and the girls that work there are mean.
