Good seasonal job, or part time. Plus, you get free bras sometimes!

I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores

Pros

Like the products, clothes, lingerie. People at my store in Century City were nice, but that's not true of every store.

Cons

Horrible pay (but that's expected for this type of retail job)

No opinion of CEO

    So not worth it even if it is only part time.

    Pros

    - ok discounts
    -some free stuff
    -visually appealing work environment
    -lenient dress code (though you have to wear all black)

    Cons

    -management wasnt on the same page
    -did not care about your personal life
    -turn over is high
    -fake environment
    -they take themselves way too seriously
    -only got discounts on full priced merchandise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to be more supportive of staff, not to pick favorites and value all employees. Get on the same page so that you dont give conflicting orders. Be fair!

    That is all!

    I felt like a cog in a corporate machine; my personal life, thoughts and beliefs didn't matter.

    I worked at Victoria's Secret Stores

    Pros

    Merchandise discount, sometimes we got free bras or beauty products, had a ton of customer interaction, the sales goals were reasonable and attainable

    Cons

    I was expected to devote my entire life to this store even though I was working part time. I didn't feel respected; when I was extremely sick, something out of my control, my managers were almost disgusted with me for not being able to give 100%. I was called into work to cover for several girls even when I wasn't on call or said I wasn't available. I worked really hard and always met or exceeded my sales goals but I never received any positive feedback from managers, only when I had done something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your associates are people with lives and responsibilities. It is not realistic to expect them to give as much to the job as a store manager or full time manager would. Of course you want to run your store as efficiently and as effectively as possible, but it should never be at the expense of your employees. People want to feel respected, motivated and encouraged.
