Unique, challenging, and rewarding. Once in a lifetime experience.


Uppers

Sitting in Monday night meetings with the CEO and leadership of Victoria's Secret and the opportunity to travel overnight to our New York City office.


Downers

There is nothing I do not like. It can at times be very stressful and demanding, especially on Mondays, but retail is fast paced and that's what I loved about this industry and this job.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is the best company to work for. The internship is so challenging and rewarding, and makes you work extremely hard. The pay is great and the work atmosphere is outstanding.


Advice to Management

The only thing some students might need is more training time. For merchandising interns you are expected to drive right in and catch on quickly.

An unbelievable HR experience in a company that values its people, culture, and values


Uppers

I was able to do a LOT of onboarding with different areas of the company. I learned a lot about the company as a whole, and was developed in my career by my supervisor


Downers

Even though I was told I did a phenomenal job, I was not given further opportunity in the company


Advice to Potential Interns

Take the time to sit down and interview multiple areas of the company. Understanding what each department does is very helpful in career development. It also gives you a wide network of contacts for future endeavors.

Opportunities Vastly Exceeded Expectations: Intern Discovers Career Insights, Desires, and Opportunities


Uppers

I had a plethora of opportunities to develop and enhance relationships throughout my internship.


Downers

The process for determining my future prospects could be more clear.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a tremendous company that provides opportunities you could never imagine. Whether you have a clear career path in mind or are still deciding, Limited Brands will give you opportunities to grow.


Advice to Management

For Limited Brands to become a better place to work for interns would be difficult. However, I do think a more clear process to full-time opportunities within the enterprise or a specific internship program geared toward students with advanced degrees rather than a general internship program would help the experience feel more tailored and make advanced degree candidates feel like they are clearly recognized for their capabilities during their internship.
