Read the signs in the store!
“It always amazed me how many customers just didn’t read any of the signs,” VSSG vented. “Victoria’s Secret has some pretty good deals, and they basically never change unless otherwise posted. I think most people know that the Pink underwear are five for $27.50, but that actually goes for the cotton underwear as well, and you can mix and match them. The Lacies are four for $29.50, and you can combine those with any other type of underwear that say four for $29.50 on the sign.”
She went on to explain the fragrance deals. "The Victoria’s Secret Fantasies we know you’re obsessed with are always three for $25 or five for $35, and you can always mix and match scents and products. That means if you want to smell like Love Spell all day long, you can get the body spray, body lotion, dry oil, body butter, and scrub. These products vary season to season. VS frequently comes out with different versions of your favorite scents, like a lighter or fruitier version of Love Spell and Pure Seduction for Summer.”
Also, it makes the employees want to cry and scream when you mess up the underwear lined up neatly in rainbow order. It took them a long time to do it. “There are drawers underneath each style organized by size,” VSSG explained. “The tables are just to show you the different styles and colors they come in.”
Yes, there are crazy people who come in.
“People are always fascinated when I say I’ve worked at Victoria’s Secret and assume I have a lot of scandalous stories,” VSSG said. “I can honestly say that if you’ve ever worked in retail, you will have crazy stories, and this is not unique to VS.”
True, but we wanted to know more dirt.
“Once a woman literally lifted up her shirt in the middle of the store and screamed, 'I WANT THIS BRA,'" she said. “The only creepy man who ever came in the store asked my co-worker to grab something from a bottom drawer and then told her he liked watching her bend over. She told him he needed to leave immediately, and he did.”
There were also some fun beauty moments with customers! “Somebody actually asked me to spray all of the perfumes on myself so she could smell it on me,” VSSG revealed. “We have little slips on cardboard you can spray perfumes on.”
