Sales Support Generalisr (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 12 October 2017
Depending on the stores needs for the day a typical day at work could consist of completing a floor-set following a brand guide for direction, or could be processing shipment, doing markdowns, setting up marketing or other merchandising tasks. Working here taught me a sense of urgency when I work, as well as time management and organizational skills.
Fun Workplace that continuously Teaches and Motivates Staff
Sales & Support Generalist (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 2 April 2017
Victoria's Secret is a fast paced environment with many aspects to the job. As a sales & support generalist you get to learn not only how to manage and work the floor but you are also taught sales, bank deposits, cash flow, inventory, shipment and customer service. Victoria's Secret has a wonderful staff and management team that makes working long hours much easier and is a fun atmosphere to be in. The company has wonderful values not only towards their customers but their employees as well, we are all treated with the upmost respect. Overall working here has taught me a lot about the retail industry, customer service and the importance of the consumer.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 March 2017
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.

holidays will keep you busy and pockets flowing
dead season means less hours if you are not full time
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 February 2017
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.
Generalist (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 1 February 2017
A typical day at Victoria's secret for a generalist is a fun and joyful day, which consists of either working at the cash wrap, cleaning the drawers, putting away go backs and placing stock from shipment on the floor. The hardest part of this job could be the hours, because you could start as early as 6am or even do an overnight shift.
Sales Specialist (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 January 2017
Really great company to work for. You receive regular free bras, panties, outfits, makeup, and perfume as titled as 'gratis'. The company also has numerous incentive programs that rewards workers who do their job well with monthly bonuses. Like any other retailer if the managers are bad then the store is bad. The store I worked at went through three different store managers in less than two years but now has a great one which makes the job much better. Getting good hours is next to impossible. You can never count on a consistent paycheque.
Stock/ Sales support generalist (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 25 January 2017
The management here was very unorganized and stressful to one as an employee. When hired, I was told that i would have proper training in all departments.That did not happen. I was told to fold panties and not taught anything about the job other than where to tag. When a customer asked me for help i would not know what to do due to the lack of training. I was felt like i could not ask due to the poor management. When
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 January 2017
Hired as a seasonal associate, received a good amount of shifts during the holiday season, It was very busy I was mostly on cash and had some early morning shipment shifts. Didn't really like the management team. My co workers were pretty friendly though.
pretty bad management was rushed and unsteady hours
Seasonal Part- time (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 January 2017
In the beginning I quite loved the working environment. However it had bad management( rude Customer Service Leads, unsteady hours per week and sometimes on call. You get forced to listen to people order you around when they are not even your supervisor.... I bared with it for 3 months but that was it .I wouldn't recommend even though it is $11.25/hour. If the management is stressful then you will be stressed out as well.
