sales associate Job Reviews
Women who are sales associates have an overall job satisfaction level of 3, 66.7% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $0-$25k.
Management can be lacking, (depending on the store) and unfortunately it's every woman/man for them self. Women have different dress codes than the men and are expected to "dress nicer" than the male coworker. Most of the advertisements are of female models wearing revealing clothing.
I suppose it depends on your managers and store location, but the girls were treated poorly at the store and it was even female dominated in management. Girls were told they required to wear heels during peak hours (12pm-6pm) and some were sent home for not wearing enough makeup. Also, lots of management cattiness and unprofessionalism.
Great place to work if you need an easy second job
Expect for both coworkers and customers to treat you like you don't know anything even if you have worked there for a long time. You may be treated like you can only work in clothing (what I mostly do) and they won't trust you to do much else.
good employer. good benefits. work life balance at all levels so far
This company is incredibly women friendly. Most employees on the sales floor are women.
Customers will doubt your knowledge and older male associates will assume your incompetence. If you keep your nose to the grind you can make full time pretty easily but don't expect any kind of praise or recognition for doing so.
Old boys club in some locations but with so many reorgs they are able to shift them out. Big opportunity for women to grow in this company if they work hard and get to know the key players
When I worked at Victoria's Secret as a Sales Associate the entire team from the store manager to the assistant managers to the sales associates were all female. I don't recall ever meeting a male employee.
I worked here for 2 years as a sales associate. It was a wonderful experience in the friends that I made while being a part of a close knit group of women. My experiences with the corporate office were not great, it seemed very disconnected from the sales associates though I think that is fairly standard across the board with commerce companies.
