Very bubbly environment
Lead Client Associate Responsibilities (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 31, 2014
Pros: very well known company, nice clients, great fragrances and gratis'
Cons: no healthcare options, low base pay
Very organized company, Very set rules and schematics. Must have a bubbly personality and be willing to talk to clients a lot. Fragrances are all very nice and lots of products are great to use and easy to introduce to clients. Very easy daily quotas to meet and very well known company so very little selling.

GREAT Company to work for.
Store Manager (Current Employee), N/AMay 9, 2014
Pros: opportunity for advancement, salary, and flexibility
Cons: upper management does get on you a lot if you are not making numbers
If you love skin care and body care and love the best things in life, then this is the company for you.
It is a sales company so you do have to work hard and follow the practices that are in place and sell, sell, sell.
There is always opportunity to move up, especially if you are willing to move. If you are then you will move up VERY quickly.
They also – more... pay above the mark for a small company. – less

Horrible Company but great products
Store Manager, Grand Central Station (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 26, 2013
Pros: good benefits, great products
Cons: poor management, horrible employees
This is the worst retail company I have ever worked for. I worked there as a Store Manager and the upper management were completely unprofessional and unorganized. I had years of retail management coming into this company and just seemed like the DMs and above just did not know what they were doing. Every plan for the stores was made at this last minute – more... and Store Managers were expected to comply with them.

The hardest part of the job was the hours. I worked very long, exhausted hours for little recognition. Positive feedback is not a regular occurrence in this company.

The best part of this job was the products. I do believe in the product and personally use it so it was exciting to sell to customers. Even though I still enjoy the products, unfortunately my experience with L'Occitane has tainted my view on them a bit. – less

Fun and informative place to work.
ASSISTANT MANAGER/LEAD ESTHETICIAN (Current Employee), Louisville, KYMay 7, 2013
Greeting customers and welcoming them into the store like they are a guest at my own home, I find what they came in for and show them an extra thing or two to increase the sale. Working with each customer directly and finding out their specific needs and wants while getting to know them and relate to them on a personal level helps me build a trusting – more... relationship with the customer. I learn new things every day as well as get the chance to educate every customer I meet. – less

Pros: free skin care products
Cons: casino hours
I have worked in skin care for many years and this was by far the most fun! I really learned how to take care of my skin in every regard.

There was alot of room for growth whitin this company and they pay well!

Amazing Products/Excellent Pay
Full Time Sales Associate/ Key Holder (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 10, 2013
Pros: amazing products
Cons: corporate neglect of the best interests of employees
L'Occitane is something of a tricky company to work for. Should you negotiate a good pay rate for yourself in the beginning (ask for more than you would think to, you might just get it!), you will find yourself well compensated for working a non-commissioned sales associate job. The standards of product knowledge are high, and the level of responsibility – more... that every associate has is higher than one might expect at a job with hourly pay. This is truly boutique retail at it's most personal level. There will be days when your location is understaffed and you will be the only associate working in the store for the entire day. There may be long stretches of time after a transfer, resignation, or firing that you location may be without a manager, and you and your co-workers will be left to run the show with a remote manager "overseeing" your location.

So, if you don't mind busting your butt and being inconvenienced at times in the face of really decent retail pay, then go for it! – less

Overall, a good place to work
Sales associate (Current Employee), BoutiqueFebruary 6, 2013
Pros: positive company culture, independence and autonomy, great products
Cons: the music.
At L'Occitane you will often be alone on the sales floor. That's great for me personally but some people don't like it. At my store at least, all sales associates are also key holders. This means you will own and close the boutique. The products are high quality and the customers are usually very pleasant to work with. The company is taking initiative – more... to improve its internal promotion program and overall culture. All of that being said, the music will drive you slowly insane. It is an odd combination of technoish muzak, Edith Piaff, and obscure French music from the 1930's. It is the same every day. It will be drilled into your head. You will hum it all the time. It will be in your dreams. So, just take that into consideration. – less
