    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via their website and got a phone call a week later.
    The phone call was a phone interview where I was asked my availability and about previous job experience and experience of working within a team. I was then asked "Why Victoria's secret?" And subsequently invited to a group interview for the next day.
    At the interview there were 4 of us, then we were lead into a training room and split into 2 groups of 2.
    We had to introduce ourselves and say an interesting fact. We then did a group exercise and were interviewed and asked questions in our pair.
    After this we were given a random item of stationery from a bag and had to sell it for a minute.
    Got a call the next day saying I had been offered the position.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores.

    Interview Details

    I applied at a local VS, make sure when you turn in your app you ask for a manager and speak with them and give the app to them.. it did take 8 days for me to get a call back so don't get discouraged! I was called on a Sunday for an interview the next day, and as expected it was a group interview with 2 other girls. I was the only girl to wear all black and the manager later thanked me for that.. The questions were simple we all had the chance to answer, I answered first the most, but you want to let the other girls talk too, at the end we made sure our availability was correct and that our references were good ones. This is super important because in order for them to hire you they need to speak with 2 references so make sure you have reliable ones! 4 days after my interview I was called for on boarding the next day which is basically all your training.. I was the only one from my interview for on boarding also. Very easy process!

    Interview Details

    Paper application. Called in for a group interview. Must be very brand loyal and excited to work with VS and Pink brands. It helps if you wear professional attire to the interview. Do not be afraid to speak up. The questions are asked generally and not just to one person. Don't be the one who is quiet the whole interview.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate pay, but should have. Whatever you put on your application is about what they offer you. I would at least put $9 an hour. When I left, I found out some of the girls were making that.

    Interview Details

    Went in the store early September and asked if they were hiring. I put in my application the following week. I was then told to come back in October. I went back September 30 to show my face and let manager know I was still interested. Went to the store two times in two weeks to check on application. Got called for an interview on the third week. Had a group interview the next day with 5 other girls. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Manager was bubbly and funny but very professional. Only a few questions were asked. After that they told us they'd give our references a call and call us back. Got the call two weeks after interview offering me the position!!
