Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Visalia, CA; Hayward, CA19 February 2013
Victoria's Secret was an enjoyable place to work. Most co-workers are friendly and management is encouraging. I learned to work in the fitting rooms, perform bra fittings, and how to recover clothing. The hardest part was recovering the underwear on a busy day. You could fold them all day and leave with them still looking like a storm hit them. The most enjoyable part of my job there was working with the customers and working in the fitting room. The one on one time with customers help you get to know them a little better and learn what there needs are. You are able to suggest things they may not have looked twice at and they end up loving it. Very few hours for most associates and if they are not busy enough they start sending people home. This wasn't so bad in Visalia, but the Hayward store did it almost every time I worked, therefore working me only 2 hours a week if that. Most employees are very nice, but there are "groups" or "cliques" which make it hard for some people to make actual friends. When I transferred to Hayward, a more expensive place to live than Visalia, they did not raise my pay which was definitely a bummer. In Hayward, there was a lot of theft. I witnessed a large one myself within the first week or so of working there(the second or third day).
Pros
complimentary items and discounts, the occasional $10-$20 bras, and the customers
Cons
few hours, little pay, theft

You will work here because the hours are flexible...
As long as you get any hours of work. Sometimes you won't get any hours for days.
This is a place for students that don't have any financial responsibility. Don't count on this place.

I liked the store but some of the people I worked with weren't the greatest. Sometimes became greatly biased and didn't give the best training. Expected you to know everything off the bat
