Move Up

I've been with VS for nearly 5 years, 4 of them as a co-manager. I am so ready to move to store manager, but nothing has opened up lately in my area.  I don't really want to relocate, and I don't want to leave VS, but I'm beginning to feel kind of restless in my career. I'd love to hear from you; what are your thoughts & experiences related to VS, or retail management in general?

I worked for VS for 7 years. Was a great company when I started. Then they merged Beauty and Lingerie as well as their selling strategy. My suggestion to you, is to take all the experience you have gained from VS such as LP, Brand, Talent and find opportunities for store manager elsewhere. VS has top notch training and they are extremely forward thinking... you will be disappointed in most companies regarding their training and communications, but you will stand out in the crowd.. Trust me you can always go back to VS when they have openings but don't lose out on other opportunities now. Even if you just go to interviews for the experience of interviewing... see what they will offer you.
