    I have been working at Victoria's Secret part-time

    Pros

    decent pay, discounted underwear, friendly supportive co-workers

    Cons

    As a sale assosiate you have a 4 hour contract but expect to work a lot of shifts! one week I worked 6 9-hour shifts!

    Commission is a bit misleading

    You can not balance this job with full time education

    Advice to Management

    be upfront about how the commission works and also how many days/hours a week you are expecting.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Victoria's Secret (Manchester, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a week or two they emailed me saying they wanted to do a quick phone interview. On the phone, they asked me about my availability, why i wanted to work at VS, what is customer service and what is good customer service skills, on the phone she told me I had been invited to a group interview the following day. At the group interview, there was 8 girls (including me) and only 1 interviewer, and we went round the room introducing ourselves saying why we wanted to work for VS and a fun fact about ourselves, then we did a group exercise for 5 minutes, after that we each answered a couple of basic customer service & retail questions which was then followed by selling a VS product to the interviewer and a couple of hours later I got a phone call saying I got the job.
