Unlike many of the reviews that I have seen. I had a one on one interview. Shortly after putting my application online I got a call from the manager of the PINK store , once I had a brief phone interview she asked what i knew about the brand and what was an interesting fact about my self... I simply told her i wear pink on a daily , i am familiar to the styles of bras and my favorite panty etc . For the formal interview she scheduled me that weekend... I arrived 15 minutes late ! ( don't do that , by the way ) anyway... the interview was simply more questions about myself, availability, most stressful moment and how i over came it ... laid back for the most part , went over discounts and dress code . Got a call back the next day welcoming me to the team !

It was only 3 of us. It seemed pretty easy but it was kinda stressful cause we all was saying the same thing. But it was good.

Group interview. 12 of us. It was with the manager of the store, whom was lovely, she was really energetic and it was quite calming I wasn’t nervous at all. We went around introduced ourselves and said a fun fact. They were definitely looking for confidence within yourself and energy. You’re going to be speaking to lots of strangers everyday you need to just portray confidence. We split into two groups and were given 3 items for the store and told as a group to discuss the items and sell them to the manager. We got to pick which we wanted to talk about. It wasn’t too difficult. We then switched products with the other group and did the same but the manager mentioned she was looking at how we interact with each other. I’m not sure if the others in my group had caught that and with a male in our group who wasn’t going to personally connect with the items we had so I made sure to talk to him and just offer ideas and not be the exact centre of attention because that’s not what they were looking for. After all that they asked us randomly a lot of customer service questions; what do you think customer service is? When have you showed compassion? What do you think good customer service is?

TIPS: make sure you are in formal BLACK. Business-casual. They were not happy with a couple girls who turned up in normal clothes. They are very focused on customer service so have answers for all those type of questions. Be friendly, try and make your answers a little personal where you can to show you can connect with the business and customers.

We had a group interview for seasonal sales associate. Our group interview was on the sales floor. The sales manager split us up and interviewed half of us in the VS part of the store and the regional manager interviewed the other half In the Pink section of the store. They both asked “why VS”, asked about our availability, a favorite Product and why it’s your favorite(it didn’t have to be a VS/Pink product) you go over your background and sales experience and then you had to sell a Bra. The. We switched to the pink side and it was pretty much the same questions and then you had to sell a Pink “item” which basically was a bra,leggings, shirt,sweater/jacket and sides. Remember to sell and up sell. I upsold the bra with a 2/75 sale and sold 2/20 matching panties. I got a job offer with in two days.

The interview is a group interview. No everyone will have a chance to speak so make sure you speak first. You will then be asked to sell an item.

Intense. They ask pretty basic questions but they're looking for a lot of personality as well as responsibility. My location typically does panel interviews with the managers, but they were in a hurry to hire someone so I was only interviewed by one. I was offered the position on spot but most times they take a few days to call back after viewing the resume and talking together.

The interview was a group interview and was short. After it was over the co manager said she would talk to the Store Manager about our resumes, then told us to wait for an email or a call back in a few days. Was asked the basic interview questions about how i work, the type of person i am, and was given certain scenarios and asked how i would handle the situation.

It was very friendly, the manager made it seem like working there is great and that I would love it there just as much as she did. I was very comfortable talking with her and we had a very open communication.
