Fun but stressful

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have worked with victorias secret fthat 5 years and for the first few years never had a problem until new management took over. I got demoted, pay was taken away, and i was given a new position. Pay is good everyone starts at $10 an hour. Sometime we work over night 9pm to 6am which is horrible. Sonetimes were given free stuff put lately the company is being cheap. We also get team bonus, if we meet last years goal and exceed we get an extra 1-3 dollars for every hour depending on sales. Discount for employees is 30% on all product except sale


Free stuff, discount, good pay


Bad management, no benefits, no vacation time, overnight shifts

Overworked and under appreciated

Worked there far too long, pay was great until it wasn't and work environment typically enjoyable but the company as a whole terrible. Cut pay after lockdown by half and expected us to continue working 10-12 hour shifts. Would not recommend.

Productive but Stressful

It was just like any other retail job. Management was stressful at times. Pay was alright definitely not for the long term. Co-workers we’re the best part of the job.

There were days when I was expected to act as security when people would steal. The pay was not that great and the supervisors were rude. We did get free items every once in a while.

Good for building people/sales skills

Very stressful, and low pay but great place to build real life skills. I worked here while in college and while the hours were long and demands are high, you will learn a lot working here.

Cool place to work

Pay should be more for all the things that you do. Good discounts and they’re flexible. The calls can take a toll and be too much. There aren’t many breaks in between calls

Easy job

Enjoyed my time here. The job was fairly easy and my managers were amazing. Closing and correcting the panty bar was the hardest part. Hours are best during holiday season.

Cool and loved it there

Working there is very unique. You definitely have a really good discount and depending on the location really good staff. The only downside is management and hours are terrible.

Great Benefits

Great benefits for reasonable cost. I have had many supervisors. Overall they help you succeed and help you work towards other opportunities. Best advice is attendance is very important.

Fun place to work

Loved working here and the people on our team. Offered flexible shifts and the management was amazing. Always gave us free items when new merchandise was launched.

Good Company

This is a good company to work for if you want to make a career with them. The work/life balance is good and the benefits package is very good. There are issues that need dealt with but no more than any other employer. Has good growth potential if that’s what you are working towards.

Easy work, terrible management

Management lacks proper communication, work is easy, few hours unless it is holiday season. Ask for raises! They try to low-ball and pay new employees more than ones that have been there for years

Good job while in school

It was a fun place to work and get a good discount ( they used to give free stuff idk if they still do) of course worse around the holidays but it’s typical retail

Fun and friendly place to work

Morning/day shifts are slow during the week, managment is friendly but not always communicative about responsibilities, employees get a great discount regardless if part or full time, hours are very unpredictable unless your in management.


Forty percent discount


Unpredictable hours

Long hours, bad pay and toxic environment

Avoid avoid avoid The hours are brutal and you are paid so terribly. The staff are so so strict. Booking off holiday is a gauntlet of stress. They got so aggy when I asked for 2 days off for my GRADUATION.

Low expectations

Good first job for high school or college student for extra money. Learn customer service and cashier skills. Learn to work as a team. Authoritarian management.


Earn paid time off based on hours worked.


No medical benefits.

High pressure with little support

High pressure to meet goals with little to no support, including payroll. Was expected to run a store with 2 associates most of the time. Pay was good once you were in management, otherwise minimum wage. No work/life balance.

Ambiente lavorativo competitivo

Ambiente lavorativo stressante e volutamente competitivo. Poca meritocrazia, poca trasparenza. In compenso stipendio puntuale e adeguato. Buona scontistica dipendenti.

They don’t care about you, experience or pay

You could be working there for a year, know all the ropes, know how to open and close, how to handle aggressive customers and they will hire new people who can’t do the job and pay them more but won’t raise the pay for other employees who have worked there for years. All locations suck and they just want credit cards and money.If you need a summer job this is fine but don’t get stuck here like some of the sad pathetic managers who have stayed there for 10 yrs+


Lots of encouragement to get credit cards in bribery like ice cream and free stuff


Short breaks, managers all suck
