    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    free stuff, discount, great people, good pay

    Cons

    Management put far too much pressure on staff to sell and they don't even receive commission for it. Managers are very unprofessional and sometimes nasty, treat staff as if we are in school. Don't give staff any credit where it is due, and sales targets make it a bad work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    stop putting so much pressure on staff to reach sales targets without giving them commission and be more professional.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret part-time

    Pros

    Great experience, great benefits and great friends.

    Cons

    Hard to juggle work with college and social life as they expect a lot of hours. Very competitive in how they reach their targets which leads to tension and rivalries in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Sales and target procedures need to be assessed and changed as they don't understand the amount of pressure they put on their employees to reach targets. Our sales for the day were read out over the radios where people were named and shamed. Not professional.

    I worked at Victoria's Secret part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Discount. Only when a manager actually comes to the till to do it for you.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Have no consideration for all the hard work shop associates do. Every manager has a different opinion so your left picking up the slack of what the other one told you to do. Very stuck up environment.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job.
