They’re usually done in group interviews although mine was done one on one so I did get a little more personal with my then assistant manager. Easy questions, they mainly wanna know if you can really up sell the brand name without knowing much about it to begin with. For most stores, you must be available on weekend and you HAVE to be available to close at least 2-3 times a week not including weekends. They love professional attitudes so come in like you really know what you’re getting into, do your company research as well.

Victoria’s Secret does not discriminate. Some of the best managers I had were male. My current district manager is a male and has been with the company 15 years. He is very respected and has worked for some of the top stores in our state.

Biweekly. Weekly pay would be nice but very few places do that anymore.

It depends on the location honestly. Getting hired at stores in cities where it's mostly college students is extremely competitive and many of the people who do get hired have previous experience with Victoria's Secret. At my store, I can't even think of an employee who had previously worked at a different VS before joining our team.

Victoria’s Secret attire is questionable at times but this is the basic rundown. If you’re applying for a VS only store the dress code is all black with fashion shoes ( flats, heels, sandals, SOME shoes *check in with your manager to know which shoes are okay to wear* and boots. ) NO TENNIS SHOES ALLOWED!!!! No jeans allowed, no polka dots, no stripes. All black or you may wear a white blouse with a black cover up such as a blazer or cardigan. NO jackets allowed on the sales floor. Wear what you would to a strict business interview. You may wear leggings as long as they’re not from work or are PINK.

If you’re in a stand by store meaning your VS store has a PINK section all the dress codes apply from the top message except if you become a PINK girl. PINK girls may wear PINK outfits ONLY on weekends and they may wear tennis shoes. Your hair can be any color as long as your style it appropriately every day you work.

Your Employees are everything, yes the customer should come first however, you can't have a functioning company if your employees aren't treated properly. If there is an issue where a customer complains about a situation please get both sides of the story, don't just go by that ONE customer who will say anything in the heat of the moment, get the employees feed back before you decide to take to a write up. Just as you would with a problem between two employees.

Also You don't want us to online order in store for employees, but also don't want us to use rewards online... if I want something in my size that's only available online but I want to use my reward on it... I'm SOL.

Thirdly I can't even begin to tell you how many customers complain we got rid of VS swim and we only have PINK swim, that most of them run 2 sizes too small. Also Pink also needs to start carrying XL. As well as the leggings need to stop being see-through.

And Lastly you want to be all for work-life balance, make it so we don't need to work two jobs just to scrape by... Livable wages are ideal, needing more full time positions at EVERY store, not only will you be more profitable because you have the coverage and a replenishment team as well as a team to keep the store clean but the sellers can focus on just that selling.. this can even keep Panty tables folded and organized not just bras.
