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

    Pros

    Meeting great friends and selling beautiful products, the discount was awesome aswell.

    Work / life balance was difficult because most shifts could not allow you. I worked shipment shifts which meant I had a 6am start.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Victoria's Secret part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to work in a team. Mostly laid back during shipment hours if you have a good efficient team . Generalist lets you choose from cashier, shipment, fits, or sales.

    Cons

    If you are in sales, they really push you to reach their target goals even if you are not paid on commission
