VS Pink is doing a collaboration with many college campuses across America and is releasing a college themed line! today when I was processing I purchased the new things for my school. This will be released in stores July 8th. Will not be available for every school, and will only be available at select VS near the campus. :)

I am so excited to share these with you guys to give a sneak peek! I will post other items as I get them. ;)

Go Terps!

follow the pink dog :)Collapse )

California Class Action lawsuit against VS!! [17 May 2008|12:17pm]

I found this in my newspaper yesterday:

Notice to Class of Proposed Settlement[...]
The Class is defined as:

Persons who applied for an hourly sales position (sales associates, sales support associates and cashiers) at a Victoria's Secret Stores, LLC lingerie store ("Victoria's Secret") between March 29, 2002 and August 7, 2007 in California and had an unpaid job preview.

An "unpaid job preview" for the position of sales associate and cashier is that part of the interview process in which an applicant goes onto the sales floor of the store and interacts with customers. A job preview for the position of sales support associate is that part of the application process in which an applicant performs tasks in the back room. If you did either then you did a job preview for the purpose of being in the Class.[...]

If you qualify as a member of the Settlement Class and submit a timely and valid Claim Form, you may get a Victoria's Secret gift card in the amount of $67.50 from the class action settlement. The Court must approve the terms of the Settlement as fair, adequate, and reasonable to the Class. The Settlement will affect all members of the Class.

If you are a current Victoria's Secret employee, your decision as to whether or not to submit a Claim Form will in no way affect your employment with Victoria's Secret.

$67.50?? I'll take it. For more info, go to www.vsclassaction.com

I used to work at VS as a csl and I used to be really active in this community when I was working there. I am in grad school right now and we have to do a multi-genre project. I am writing mine on gossiping at victoria's secret. I was hoping you could share some gossip stories with me and maybe... if we have a poet among us if you could write a poem about gossiping at vs. The project is due wednesday and I am having sucha hard time coming up with ideas. hopefully you can help.

Are associates allowed to return Semi-Annual Sale items? I just bought a bra on SAS that I was sure would fit, so I bought it without trying it on. As my luck would have it, it's a little big. I'm not scheduled to work again until after the SAS ends and I really don't feel like running in there before then, lol.

I know this community is mostly ex-employees now, but can someone tell me what happened to my Angel Demi with Lace?! Did they discontinue it for one of those hideous ipex contraptions? I looked all over the website and couldn't find anything. I'll be so sad if it's gone.

Welcome to Victoria's Secret; do you have an Angel's Card? [25 Jun 2007|10:22pm]

Name: Rebekah
Age: 21
Store Location & Number: #852, Marlton, NJ
Status: sales associate
Time with Company: two months
Favorite Collection & Bra: Angel's collection, Angel's Secret Embrace (so comfortable for everyday, and pretty, too!)
Favorite thing about working at VS: my fellow newly-hired co-workers
Least Favorite thing about working at VS: the segment updates over the headsets; too much pressure to hard-sell merchandise and credit. I'm only a seasonal employee who is not necessarily planning on returning next summer, and recently had to sit through a meeting with the new store manager that was all about how our store can become a platinum team. We were told that we're either on board for becoming platinum, or we're not. I'm sorry, but I'm only here until August. While I want the store to be successful, I don't live and breathe the potential platinum status of #852 like you apparently do. It's a little too much pressure for a summer job, but they're the first place that hired me, so I'm going to stick it out.

soo... [25 Feb 2007|09:04pm]

[ mood | irritated ]

Anyone else being scheduled only 4 hours a week? I don't understand why i was hired in the first place if they can only give me 4 hours. It's not like this is a high school job for me or anything. I live on my own and pay tons of bills. It's my only obligation too. When they hired me they were like "oh you can work any shift?! that's awesome!" my first week i had nearly 30 hours, it seems like they've just been decreasing more and more since then. Please tell me my store isn't the only one that does this to it's employees.

Welcome to Victoria's Secret, do you have an Angels Card? [29 Jan 2007|02:54am]

[ mood | bitchy ]

Name: Julia
Age: 20
Store Location & Number: Cape Cod, Mass... i believe our number is 244
Status: Sales Associate
Time with Company: i've been there for about 3 weeks.
Favorite Collection & Bra: I've had my eye on pretty much any of the infinity edge bras for a while now. and i like a lot of the things in pink... although there are also a bunch of things i wouldn't wear in this collection because i hate tacky slogans.
Favorite thing about working at VS: it's so much more laid back then my last job.
Least Favorite thing about working at VS: dealing with customers who no matter what you say it isn't good enough for them, or people desmolishing panty tables after i just straightened them all out... just watching them destroy something i've worked on kills me a little inside each time, ooor getting paid $2 less then my last job and not getting nearly as many hours with plenty of bills to pay.

Potential applicant...Reference Q [28 Jan 2007|11:19pm]

Hey everyone!
I plan on applying tomorrow or the following day...
The thing is, I've only worked with my parents at my father's doctor's office and as far as references, could I put personal references? Just people that I've had long relationships with that know me really well?
