Great job but not for me.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Nashville, TNApril 8, 2014
Pros: discount
Cons: little full time opportinites besides mgmt. no befits unless mgmt.
The job for a while was great. The atmosphere is fun, even thought its stressful at times. After a few years of working in this kind of retail environment (bras and panties) you really get tired of the shoplifters and the folding of hundreds of panties every night. Its good for a seasonal job in between semesters, but unless you WANT to be a manager – more... someday, its best to move on. – less

High expectations from a successful brand
Product Manager (Former Employee), Abilene, TxApril 7, 2014
Pros: well known brand, gratis, merchandise discounts, growth potential
Cons: below average compensation, poor work-life balance
If you can manage at Victoria's Secret, you can manage anywhere!

Company has very high standards for its employees. Very fast-paced environment. Marketing and visual merchandising strategies are constantly changing in order to maximize selling potential according to market data. I learned a lot about analyzing business metrics and the "shopkeeper" – more... mentality. There is potential for growth in this company as long as you have the drive and the talent. It is a well known brand and can be a fun place to work for at times. Employees enjoy 30-40% discounts and regular merchandise gratis.

Unfortunately I don't think my team and I were compensated fairly for the amount of effort we put in and the results we created (ranked in the top 100 stores for overall store performance in 2013). Even among other retailers, I would say on average VS pays within the bottom third. – less

Bra Specialist
Bra Specialist (Former Employee), Glendale, CAApril 5, 2014
I was in charge of more than just making every woman who stepped into the store as welcomed as possible. My job was to make sure she was getting the ultimate and full-experience of a Victoria’s Secret shopper and inspire her with intimate knowledge. It was an honor to connect and bra fit every customer in order to fulfill all her expectations in the – more... fitting room. I knew the store inside/out and had no problem with making this happen. Other times, I was just placed at cashiers for the rest of the day or recovery of the store. – less

Exciting, fast-pace work enviroment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Spanish Fort, ALApril 3, 2014
A typical work day consisted of clocking in, listening to the daily message, and meeting with a manger to find out where you were working for the day, Each employee was cross trained in every department so you could work where they needed you. The hardest part of the job was the training because everything is extremely detailed. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was the everyday customer interaction. My co-workers were amazing, Everyone always worked as team, managers and associates always worked together and bounced ideas off of one another, – less

SASSY, FUN, CHIC
Retail Associate (Former Employee), DallasApril 2, 2014
This particular VS is in a mall in the "higher-end" part of Dallas. With that being said this store was always busy! Keeping the store clean and being attentive to all customers was a challenge, but I loved it! I tried to keep the two balanced.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Short Hills, NJApril 1, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, fun work environment
This job provided a great work environment and enabled me to greater my customer service experience. Gives employees the opportunity to help customers, fellow employees and the cooperation improve sales.The management staff was extremely helpful and motivating, giving each employee to chance to prove their responsibilities. The hardest part of the job – more... was pleasing customers who were unhappy with store selection.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Mall Of The EmiratesMarch 30, 2014
Taking about the working schedules i was given very comfortable shifts.
In this company i have learned more about the customer services.
My co-workers, they are very friendly.
The hardest part of the job is when we are out of stock and convince the customer to buy the similar product.
The most enjoyable par of the job is when the store is very busy.

Sales Associate/Cash Wrap Lead (Current Employee), Various, CaliforniaMarch 28, 2014
Pros: fun, supportive, interesting
Cons: part-time schedule
Victoria's Secret is such a great company to work for, enthusiastic coworkers and management make it fun to go to work everyday. I spend my days creating a relationship with customers so that they are confident with their purchases and comfortable shopping with us again. The hardest part of my job is when I've exhausted all solutions and the customer – more... is still unsatisfied while the best part is knowing when I've created a confident customer for life. – less

Stock Support Associate (Current Employee), Queens, NYMarch 28, 2014
Pros: work with your schedule, monthly free/discounted merchandise
Cons: short shifts, pay rate
I have only been in VS for 5 months I have worked at 3 different stores and at each one the job culture and so called standards that the company has has been different.

My home store did things pretty much by the books but my coworkers where fun and friendly and we all took care of each other; when one wasn't feeling good the other picked up the slack – more... and we all balanced each other. We all felt that the more we learned the more likely we were to advanced in the company, get more hours, and a better schedule.

My present store is a different case. Even though we try to follow the standards set by the company I would have to say that more than half the workers of the store could careless to follow them. Many of my coworkers only work there part time with no hope for advancement. They make fun of management and any one who might show some interest in advancing in the company, and they do the minimal, "if its not in my job description I'm not doing" said a coworker to me once. I fell in love with the company at my home store but the store that I am now has me very discouraged to stay – less
