Great company, but management can make or break your experience.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Markham, ONJune 29, 2014
Pros: employee discount/gratis, making woman feel great by finding them the perfect fit, hours are great if your sales & availablility are great
Cons: management, crazy customers, unhygienic customers
I have worked with Victoria's Secret since October 2013. I opened with my team in November and I was so excited! Training was awesome, we trained at another store where we were able to experience first hand with experienced associates. In the beginning I thought things were great, we had a great team but when we opened our store things started to go – more... down hill. Management was very unorganized, the STORE was unorganized, and associates and managers started quitting. The turnover rate of our store was ridiculous. We were without a store manager for several months after we opened, then we had a store manager join us for a few months, then SHE left, another few months went by without a store manager and things were chaotic. Overall, it may just be our store that is complete unorganized, not to company standards but yet whenever the district manager tells us what is wrong with our store the problems never seem to get fixed. We have category managers who are transferred from other stores that reassure us that this is not how our company is. There really is no room to grow, and the experience hasn't been the best and the only reason I'm staying is because I still need a job to pay the bills until I find another one. – less

Great store opening experience
Cashier/ Sales associate (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ONJune 24, 2014
Pros: laid back
Cons: managers are distant
Everyday was great you knew exactly what to do when you came in for the evening shifts many times there are no managers in the stock from so it was up to you and the other back room associates to get individual jobs done. It wasn't high pressure and the brand team leaders (in the other sections ) knew they could count on us for getting our tasks done. – more... Hardest part of that job was there were so many "managers" that it could have been confusing on the main manager. They didn't always have a grasp of who everyone was even on first name bases. – less

Good place to start working, but not for long term
Sales Support (Current Employee), Calgary, ABFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: poor pay
The people who work at this location are good people but there is a very high turn over rate with both associates and management staff. The best part about working here is the friendships that you make with the people you work with.
One of the hardest parts is it is VERY hard to advance within the company and you are rarely rewarded for hard work and – more... the company does not recognize the commitment that some employees have made to the company. – less

Fun workplace
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Halifax, NSFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: free bra's
Cons: not enough hours
It was my first retail job and I loved it. I was hired when the store first opened in Halifax, everyone was very excited and we had a dynamic work team. The managers are laid back and the company in general motivates their employees alot! If like to have fun with a bunch of girls then you should definitely work here!

Sales Support (Former Employee), CalgaryJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: they give you free product so that you can give your customers your personal testimony, everyone that worked there were kind hearted people.
Cons: you only get a week notice for your work schedule.
Victoria's Secret was the best job I have had so far!. It was fun and I did not feel stressed about going into work. Even though you were able to have fun and be yourself the work still got done. If you ever had a problem you just had to go talk to the manager and they would do everything they could to solve it.

Amazing Work Enviorment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Oshawa, ONJanuary 20, 2014
A good day at Victoria's Secret revolves around the strong connection between our staff. Each employee relies on one another to assist customers in different ways. The management team is always there to support the associates with whatever we may need. The hardest part of the job is not having a specific product valuable to a customer. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is the gratitude expressed by happy customers. – less

Fun and Smooth
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Sherway Gardens MallOctober 14, 2013
Started early mornings to unload shipments, though I enjoyed this because it gave me the opportunity to enjoy the rest of my day with friends and family. Management was well organized and ran the store very smoothly. There is lots of room for advancement. Staff was young welcoming and friendly.

Productive place with new faces to meet everyday
Sales Support & Stock Associate (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 4, 2013
With a stock associate usually shifts start at six in the morning or you have a closing shift. Usually as a team we do a full push of all our shipment that came in that morning and make sure the store is up to standards. For the almost two months I've been there, I've learned the many types of bras for her, and how to reinforce the sale by connecting – more... with her and making sure she is satisfied. Management is a great team, very approachable just like the co-workers I work with.
Hardest part of the job is most likely when the store is really busy and we have to maintain the drawers and stands so that they are neat for customers to shop in. The most enjoyable part of my job is the new people I get to meet everyday, co-workers and customers. – less

Victoria Secret not so glam
Bra Specialist (Former Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 21, 2013
A typical day at work was pretty hectic the store was brand new to Toronto and could be very over whelming with the amount of people that would be in the store at once. I learned to be more aware of my surroundings and to be able to talk to different kinds of people and customers. I also learned to balance work and school at the same time. The management – more... was not great here as the store was brand new and policies and values were not yet clearly defined.They were rude to their employees and were also condescending to staff. There were over 200 employees when I started and they were all very different, some very down to earth others very outspoken, I also learned to handle intense situations with calmness and kindness not to escalate things. – less
