    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Victoria's Secret part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good discount, good training, and not having to call a manager to void an accidentally scanned item/refund/return like you have to do at most stores was v. helpful, and generally the customer service stuff was really good, whatever the customer wanted you could give them basically.

    Cons

    They say you get commission but in the time I was there only one girl ever got any commission to my knowledge, as you had to sell £130 worth of products an hour, every hour of your shift, for every single shift for a whole month. Especially hard to do when you have a name that's not very common, so the customers always forget your name when asked at the till, which they need to do in order for you to get the credit for that sale!

    I worked at Victoria's Secret part-time

    Pros

    - Free products when you join and every month - Staff discount (50% if you work on PINK) - Great training - they get you really excited and passionate about their ethos which is all about making women feel comfortable in their own skin - If you are setting up a new store, you really feel part of the team!

    Cons

    - As commission is based on which staff member's name the customer remembers as giving great service, some employees will hang near the tills and tell them their own name minutes before checkout in order to get all the commission
