"Victoria's Secret used to be labeled as one of the most iconic brands in the world and received a ton of attention and success. With all the success and attention came more scrutiny from the media and public. Due to the lack of appropriate responses and forecasting of future trends in the social culture of the world the company has lost its' once luxurious reputation. It has been thought of as a place that is non-inclusive, exploitive, and simply unaware of its' identity. The company has fallen out of touch with the consumer that pushed the brand to the forefront of fashion some time ago."
"A huge company that focuses too much on numbers and sales and not on workload for their workers."
"A great work environment, above average pay compared to most retail in NH. Nikki is definitely the most friendly manager there and she really looks out for you (deserves a promotion for sure). During the holidays it becomes stressful but keeps you busy which passes the time. Definitely not a bad part time job, sad to have had to leave."
"I've worked for Victoria's Secret for the past two and a half years. I love the brand, making it easy to sell products I feel passionate about on a daily basis. I love the amount of communication given from top level management to lower level employees. You feel very included and appreciated by the corporate managers of the company!"
"Victoria's Secret is a great place to work, mainly becuase you get to work from home. I love their products and have been a loyal customer with them for over 10 years. I cannot rave enough of their bras especially."
"If you believe you could do so much more than what you are doing at Victoria’s Secret; leave. Your belief, and this review will guide you to the way you want to live. Yes you can get amazing deals on lingerie but, no amount of work you put into that company is worth you still feeling empty and unsatisfied. Take your experience and innovate into the creator you are. Victoria’s Secret does not care about the people who work there, they care about if you can meet satisfactory sales. They don’t care about your ideas or opinions just saying."
"The only down side is a work life balance."
"Limit brands is an exceptional place to grow and learn. It offers a great strategy to succeed."
"Victoria’s Secret was a great disappointment. After almost 4 years of service, I was terminated for contacting authorities about 3 young women who were shoplifting and threatening my staff. When the girls were apprehended they found merchandise and a weapon (nunchucks). There was no documentation, follow up, or suspension issued to me, and 3 weeks after the incident, I was terminated (effective immediately). Just 2 months before my maternity leave. I truly believe this was an act of retaliation because the HR manager and new DM (who are practically best friends) didn’t fancy my demands for a raise some months before, even though I was more than deserving of one. They are constantly sacrificing real talent and true leadership for people who know less and say yes. I learned that quality is of no value to this brand, but even their product has reflected that over the years. I would never recommend this company to anyone. The politics, the scandal, the prejudice, and all the cover-up will continue to bite them where it hurts."
"There is never a set schedule. I go from working 35+ hours, to only getting 5 hours the next week. The managers definitely pick favorites and push for sales. You get a lecture if you don't meet your goal every day even when it's almost impossible because of the store being so slow and no customers. It is a fun job, but you always feel as though your best isn't good enough. I love the other associates that I work with. It is definitely harder than most retail jobs. You will come home with sore feet every day that you work."
"They really work around your schedule and do not get upset if you have another job, They are very understanding that bills need to be paid and you need a second job. They do not get upset unlike some places I've worked for."
"This is a good company to work for but the lack of communication and the lies that are told are trying at times. Management beats around the bush and blames upper management for things they cannot offer you as an employee."
"I've worked for this company for 6 years. They don't pay or treat their employees very well for what they are expected to do."
"It is a great company to work for, but this location does not provide a lot of room for growth and has a lot to do as far as growing the sales of the company. Theft is prominent in this location and with no cameras or security and only two people working every two hours, it is impossible to stay on top of this problem."
"I worked for Victoria's Secret for a little over a year. It was just a part time job to keep some money in my pocket during college. The environment was decent. I really don't have any complaints on the company."
