Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
London, England

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

Interview Details Received a Call, had a telephone interview which proceeded to a group interview. Called up a week later to ask if there was any updates with regards to my application and got told that I got the job! Very confused why I was not called initially to let me know but was assured that this was due to the busy nature (I applied as one of the first batches - therefore I opened the store).

Interview Question – Make sure to be presented well, well spoken and be able to apply the experience you have (be it retail or not) to the questions you asked for there was a girl in my interview that only had beauty therapist experience but applied her knowledge of customer experience to the job role in question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – N/A

Inventory Deployment Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in April 2014.

Interview Details The entire process was smooth. I received a call from the recruiter on a Thursday to schedule an interview with 5 Managers and a Director for the following Tuesday. The interview was very straightforward as most of the questions were about analytical skills and collaboration. I got an email from the recruiter two days later and was asked to come in to meet with one more Manager. I met with that Manager the following day and was asked more questions about collaboration and influencing others. I was offered the job the following Tuesday. The offer was in line with what I expected so there was not need to negotiate. Advice to anyone interviewing for similar roles with VSS is to come prepared with SPECIFIC examples of situations in which you displayed analytical and collaboration skills. Good Luck!

Sales Associate Interview

Frisco, TX (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in July 2010.

Interview Details Submitted my application in person and scheduled an interview on the spot. The interview was in a few days and at the conclusion on the interview I received an offer. The questions were general "why do you want this job" and questions about other time commitments. No brainer!

Brands Manager and Operations Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

Interview Details I applied online forBath and Body Works brand. I was contacted by a recruiter to interview for The Victoria's Secret brand. It was a phone interview, which as a hiring manger at my currnt company, I am not a fan of. I guess I am old school and prefer to meet applicants in person. I was not offered a position. I guess my 15+ years in retail management was not acceptable. The recruiter was very polite with the turn down though.

Interview Question – I believe all questions asked were expected for the position applied for.   Answer Question
