Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Manassas, VA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in May 2012.

Interview Details Went into the store to apply, I got a call for an interview date with in a week. The interview was a group interview. The same questions were asked among all of us. Once that was over, the manager asked how our availability was. Personally, I think that's what determined if you got a job or not. If you were more available than the next person, you pretty much got the job. Once the interview was over, 4-5 days later I got a call back and accepted their offer

Interview Question – None of the questions were hard. Very generic. Why Victoria's Secret? What can you bring to Victoria's Secret if hired? What knowledge do you have about bras, right now?   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Victoria's Secret Stores in July 2014.

Interview Details I applied online and was emailed back with a request to interview. The email included two time slots on the same day the following week to choose from. Once I got to the interview centre, we were all taken to an interview room upstairs and left there for 15 minutes. Eventually the interviewers showed up and asked us all to introduce ourselves one-by-one, giving an interesting fact about ourselves and why we wanted to work at VS. After this, we were given a hypothetical situation in smaller groups and asked to pick an item to sell to that customer out of a selection given. The interviewers listened in on our process and made notes. Then we were each given an item and asked to make a one minute sales pitch to the whole group. After this, we were split into smaller groups again and the interviewers asked each of us different questions based on hypothetical retail situations. The interview lasted two hours.

Interview Question – 'A customer comes in asking to repurchase a fragrance that we no longer stock. Which item from the pile in front of you would you offer as an alternative?' The items given were several bras and some loungewear.   Answer Question

There were helpful videos and even a little work booklet to help me learn the company and my position.

Interview Question – There was one manager in the location I was at that consistently drilled a whole bunch of question I did not know nor learned. she is strict and really expects you to know things even when you brand new.   Answer Question
