Amazing job-with the right manager
Store Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 14, 2018
Overall this is a great place to work-if you do not intend to make a career out of L'Occitane.
Overall, the compensation is fair, the environment is laid back and fun, there are great opportunities for advancement, and the work you do is enjoyable.
However, upper management is an absolute mess with no direction and few hard policies in place to make your job easier or more defined. There is no work life balance here. Expect to get contacted incessantly on your off time-including texts, emails and phone calls. Expect to work well over your allotted hours with no thanks. Do not expect any raises or merit increases. The company offers a yearly infinitesimal merit increase but it's nothing to encourage you to get out of the bed in the morning.
As a manager you get no support in your job, you will carry the entire store on your back with no help. I would recommend L'Occitane only for part time work or for short term employment.
fair compensation, fun work environment, wonderful products
horrible upper management, poor work life balance, no support
