    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (New York, NY (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Did not pay attention to me. Really rude. Didnt want to know my name. Spent 5 minutes on me. Made me fill out an entire application only to tell me that i cant work there because i have to be free on weekends. I said yes i can be free in the mornings or afternoons and she said no you need to be all day available and i said more than 8 hours ? And then she told me goodbye. Kinda hurt. And i was really nice and professional. She just didnt even treat me as a normal human with respect.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores (Joliet, IL (US)).

    Interview

    It was a group interview with 4-5 other candidates. A manager asked everyone the same basic interview questions. I believe almost everyone received an offer and started working within the next month. I received a call later the same day of my interview with an offer. I accepted and started training the following week.

    Interview

    The interview was easy and informative. It consisted of a lot of group questioning and even a short video about the company. Managers are hands on in the interview. Company policies overrule the usual softball questions and you could tell it was a very procedural process.

    Interview

    It was an in-person, one on one interview. Very easy and casual. The interview consisted of scripted questions followed by casual conversation about each one. The turn around between the application being submitted and getting a call back was very short. Only downside is that the application must be submitted in person.
