Account Development Specialist (Former Employee) – FL – June 18, 2013
Acct Execs rely heavily on ADS for doing their job... My old AE never stepped foot into a store except when she had to meet the higher ups.... The rest of the time, her fleet of ADSs would scatter in a frenzy whereever the market was failing...Like Mighty Mouse...to save the day.... Expectation far exceeds the experience.... And is definitely not a GLAM job by any means. Clarins USA is failing miserably in its attempt to conduct business in the same light as Jacques Courtin Clarins' vision. Management and corporate create a very defeatist attitude on the front line. They create an impossible numbers game along with daily edits to scheduling. For goodness sake, don't give them any ideas or feedback!!!
My clientele was of the finest in Nashville. The constant pressure to stay on my toes drove me to be the # 1 Beauty Advisor in my district for 5 straight months! I learned so much in such a short period of time and I was extremely successful! I enjoyed the challenge!

Clarins is a wonderful brand to work for, unfortaubaty there has been so recent changes that made me not want to work for the company more, I'm into showing people how wonderful the brand has been, but I feel with their decline they might have been desperate and a bit pushy.

Clarins,Inc. was a perfect place to work, I cannot think of anything ill=natured about it.I traveled 5 states and loved every minute of it. A typical day included my attendance and performing facials on those that made appts. to see me.
always treated with respect
some accounts forgot to give a break to those working it.

Beauty Consultant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 22, 2016
A typical work day is running behind customers trying to get them to sit down try products and buy. They say teamwork but you are not allowed to speak to collegues or anyone else in the store. If you are caught talking, someone will text message the Account Executive and you get reprimanded by a phone or text
Great Pay and Free Product
Do as I say not as I do, Anti comraderie, Favortism
Account Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 4, 2016
A typical day at work is running behind customers asking them to try our skincare. The expectation is that you call your family and friends , customers basically go door to door or business to business and have an outsource event to sell Clarins skincare. Had to report hourly how many people you sat down, how many were new, what did they buy, average unit sale, items per transactions etc. Best part of the job making women happy and look beautiful. The hardest part of the job is chasing customers down to sit and watching those in charge run the business with do as I say not as I do attitude.
Allowance for Product/ Beautiful Skincare
Favortisim, several complaints on bosses favorite leading to high turnover
Model/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 28, 2015
Fast-paced workplace, good for individuals interested in sales. The hours are fine, work schedule is not so definite. My boss had given me random dates to work as well as switched up my dates sometimes. However, the communication was excellent and my boss always kept in touch.
