Pros: fun and friendly atmosphere
Cons: short breaks, limited benefits
My experience with Victoria's Secret PINK has been generally a positive one. A typical day starts off with a short meeting where we discuss daily goals, promotions, and duties. From then on, we work on our specific tasks while always attending to customers. That is our first priority. We take our 15 or 30 minute break, depending on the hours worked. An hour before our shift ends we report to the floor manager and discuss our accomplishments, comments, and concerns for the day. The remaining hour is dedicated to the task deemed most important for the manager. If closing, it consists of recovering and filling up the store making it look perfect for the next day.
The skills that I learned and improved on while working at PINK were numerous. Customer service was most important. Attention to detail came next along with multi-tasking and keeping up with merchandise knowledge. Management was very attentive, professional, and fair. My co-workers were the best part of my job. Everyone got along great and made work worth coming to. The hardest days were the days when the season slowed down and it felt very solitary at the store.
