Fun place to work while in high school and throughout college. A lot of folding and recovering the store, staying after closing time for over an hour each night
30-50% discount, free or heavily discounted items each month
Crazy hours, rude customers, on feet all day
I got my first job here and was super excited when I first started working here. However they taught us to racially profile and always assume someone of a different race was going to steal. I almost always got stuck ringing up people instead of helping people on the floor which is what I expressed interest in. My coworkers were great people and we stayed in touch after I left but I didn't enjoy the job and was happy to leave
I was there for almost 3 years and every year it just got crazier and crazier. When I first started, Seattle didn't have the same labor laws as they do now. I would work hours without any break and when I finally was able to take my 30 min. lunch I would have only 20 mins or so left of my shift. They would make me stay late just to take my lunch! Management would yell at the employees in front of everyone, doesn't matter if there are customers around or not. There was so much wrong with this company its unbelievable! It's a fine second job or if you want to work there seasonal but definitely not a smart career choice.
offer predictability pay discount a lot of free stuff
to many things to write
On a typical day Victoria secret pink is very fast paced. I was the bra fitting specialist there and absolutely enjoyed my role however i was unhappy because the job was not contributing to my career goals as a business owner. The management can be very poor from time to time but your coworkers make the job worth it. The Victoria secret/Pink culture holds you accountable to their Values! They do not treat you as just a regular employee! they have amazing benefits and really show you that they care from a company perspective. They have flexible schedules and can accommodate any schooling, they're big on that too! The hardest part of that job is juggling different customer personalities. since Pink is very fast paced you're dealing with a lot of people at once. The most enjoyable part is the fashion you're surrounded by. Pink is so innovative on their designs and what they choose to release. Overall Pink is a great store.
Benefits, Pay/ compensation, Discounts on all pink, Victoria secret, bath and body works merch.
Management needs work.
Depends on if you get along with the people working. I recommend trying to get to know your employees. when I was working there the management was bad they judged you and had favorites. They were quick to step with things and very competitive.
short breaks, rude teamates
On a typical day at work, I am running clothes back on the floor, recovering clothes on the floor and ringing in customers. I have learned that Retail is not as easy as I thought it was gonna be but it also is not that hard either. Management is on top of everything and is very helpful with me in learning a new trait of work. The hardest part of the job was getting down the register, but, I eventually figured it out. I really enjoy working in women's attire and I have definitely learned a lot about the stores products.
Great learning experience
I didn't really like the management here. Meetings could be shorter and straight to the point. The training session took 6 hours of watching video clips and some may think there are better things to do than listening to repetitive clips about being sexy, glamorous and superficial beauty.
free bra samples and lotion samples
bad hours and useless meetings
the overall business model at VS was smart and well organized. it was a proven way to make the stores successful as long as the management teams could do all the overtime expected. There was no life balance. It was hard to keep sales associates loyal to the brand when it was clear there were no incentives for them to stay with the company if there were no open management positions. The sales associates were scheduled as all part timers, which made it difficult to keep them for more than a few months when they needed to make a higher income.
lots of recognition for good work, good bonus structure
no work life balance, hard to keep good people
