A typical day at work would be pretty easy, just making sure everything was neatly in place. Working here helped me learn how to work well with other since it was my first job.
Pros
Got paid well

Too far

This place was very fun to work in. it taught me how to deal with costumers face to face and how to control a heated situation. Being organized is a must here.

You are expected as a sales associate to sell a certain amount per hour on average in order to keep your job, I left the company after it became commission-based and working every day became a competition and fellow employees became to difficult to work with.

Long hours, especially during closing time. Wouldn’t leave until 12-1am most nights. Management was overall pleasant and cared about their food employees for the most part.

Commissions effected the relationship with workers. It created a hostile work environment and cause a lot of stressed. It tool focus away from doing whats best for the customer to all about the money.

I wished I would have enjoyed working here, but my experience was quite dreadful. It felt too stressful as soon as you walked into the place, because everybody was expected to meet a really high sales quota.

Victoria's Secret is a great place to work. Management has a HUGE impact on the culture and environment of the store and how it operates. If the management doesn't work together or know how to do things, the whole team suffers

It's a great and diverse workplace to be in. I've been with the company for 2 years, and was able to learn a lot, such as cashier, selling, and customer service.

Worked as a team member in sales at the store. Helped customers find what they looking for. Helped open and close the store as well as helped with inventory. Made sales and made customers for life. Organized place settings and helped clean up. (Transferable Skills) Worked the front of the store greeting customers. (People Skills) Got the chance to explore the sales world and how to make money for the company; every day we had a goal of how much money we as a sales group want to reach. It helped me with my Transferable Skills, Personal Skills and my Sales Skills.
Pros
discounts
Cons
Requires a lot of attention and time

When I worked at Victoria secret even though I was a cashier I still had to help people find bras and under wear. I would have to deal with all different types of people, and sizes. Some girls would be shy and didnt know what exactly to get, so I would try to get them to feel comfortable with me. I always wanted to make sure the customer felt like a family member that way they would always come back.
Pros
working for the company, the pay, the costumer service I picked up there.
Cons
I liked everything about the company. It was a great experience!
