Business Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 28, 2017
Chanel is a great company to work for if you are a lover of history, and luxury. I personally love the story of Mademoiselle Coco, this strong woman inspires and gives you a sense of pride to work for a company built by such a fierce woman with amazing vision.
The product line is pure luxury and has customer loyalty, like no other. Every woman wants a piece of Chanel:). The unfortunate thing is that those that run the company don't look to develop and mentor loyal and productive team members. This breeds frustration and loss of key talents to other brands that appreciate a desire to growth.
history, quality of product
culture not supportive, lack of mentoring, no growth opportunity.
We work hard and are rewarded for all our efforts! loved loved
Fashion Advisor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – November 3, 2016
It was an amazing company to work for and I wish I could have continued my employment there; however, I am going through a divorce and had to relocate to orange county. I enjoyed working in high end luxury goods. My coworkers and mangers were especially influential to my success at the company.
Great benefits, good discounts, free make-up samples

Typical day at work: Fast paced. What I learned: Don't trust the French. Management: A great team: My co-workers: The best in the world. Hardest part of my job: Too many people with their hair on fire. Most enjoyable part of my job: Seeing a great plan succeed.
The Wertheimer family is focused on developing & growing Gabrielle's legacy.
TERRITORY MANAGER (Former Employee) – Tennessee – July 23, 2016
I was a territory manager for the Chanel Cosmetic brand within Tennessee for 9 years. The success, passion and loyalty of the Beauty Advisors that worked at the following retailers: Nordstrom, Dillards, Macys & Belk stood out from all other cosmetic brands. These sales associates had an extensive knowledge of Gabrielle Chanel's vision and commitment to excellence. Because of their elevated sales results they were highly sought after by the competition.
I have since left CHANEL, the main reason was due to the lack of support from the New York Office. Often there was no clear communication or direction from upper management. Our National meetings (held once every 6 months) was the only time we received important product information. Only if you asked questions did you show-up on upper managements radar. Unfortunately, this also meant you were questioning the status quo. This was not looked upon favorably.
Brand heritage and customer awareness.
Lack of communication & support at field sales level.
I had a great time working with my co-workers. We all helped each other with anything. We worked as a team to make a lot of sales. I had an ok experience with management. The management was not professional and disorganized.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR Freelance (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 2, 2016
Work mostly weekend and holidays. Fun atmosphere. Meet great people. This is a great job for part time work because hours are limited. Account Executive are wonderful and get a lot of training to help you in the field for the future.
A typical day at work is being a team player and servicing my customers while at the same time maintaining Chanel's Credibility and Brand. I learned to be a team player and recognize that my job is part of the bigger operation. All details matter.
Kind co-workers and lunch company.
a few toxic co-workers who put a damper on my day.
Fun place to work with a lot of different personalities to learn from
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 21, 2016
Working for Chanel was an awesome experience. I worked in the Bloomingdales location on lexington avenue. My co-workers made the hours fly by and there was always something new to learn. Had to keep all areas cleansed and sanitized as well as the MUA brushes. Stocking and being responsible of inventory helped me learn more about the products Chanel sold.
