Cashier and Sales Associate (Current Employee) – vancouver, bc – 24 July 2017
it is an alright place to work part time while you are in school because they are very accommodating. However they are also very disorganized as managers and will schedule you outside your availability because they can't keep track of their employees and will not train you well if you are seasonal. The co workers and managers are pretty nice though and overall is is an ok place to work.

Costumers know how to keep you stay in your feet. Managers would be happy to help as much as they can during the day. However some costumers are just different. The company offers a lot of stuff for the employees so they can offer a good feedback and reviews for the costumers when they have questions around our items. But the flexibility of the workplace is what is good about the company

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.

to much drama with managers acting like children and verbally abusing staff.i was trapped in a corner and yelled at by a "manager" well trying to leave for my break and she was blocking me in a bay so i could not leave. she then proceeded to get me fired. for insubordination.
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 23 June 2017
The people that I work with are great, they give the employees chances to move up in the company. They do their best to accommodate any and all second job issues. They are fair with the way that they distribute the hours available every week. The girls are very flexible with the hours that they work and are always willing to switch shifts when needed.
Sales Associate (Seasonal Help) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 June 2017
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.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 June 2017
Working at Victoria's Secret is every girls dream as it is one place we all love to visit when we shop. It is never a boring job as everyday when you walk in is a different set up and it's a fabulous shift no matter what day it is! Love my job here and I'd come back in a heartbeat
BRA SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 June 2017
I loved coming to work every day. The women I worked with were always supportive and a pleasure to be around. They offered very good promotional discounts. Working in the fitting room allowed me to handle an array of intimate situations with respect and grace.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 June 2017
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.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Robson, BC – 2 June 2017
Working here as a customer service associate allows for experience with a wide range of personalities in customers and coworkers. Their hours are quite long and you will need to put yourself out there to excel.
Cashier/Sales Associate (PT) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 May 2017
The staff at this location was horrible to work with, very indecisive and unorganised which took away from the experience. Being pushed to haggle customers continuously takes away from their shopping experience, as well as the manager's telling you to only spend 2-3 mins with each customer.
