    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at L'Occitane in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I brought a resume and a cover letter to the store and filled out the paper and was scheduled an interview few days later. I had an interview with store manager about 50min. The question was not so complicated. Some of them was like this below.
    What is your passion about working as a sales associate at L'Occitane?
    What will you do if the customer doesn't buy product after touch-up service?
    What is your sales approach for new customer?
    After the interview, I was told to have an phone interview with district manager. On the same day, I had a call from the district manager. She was asking me what I learned from the interview with the store manager or what did I talk with her.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional. Called to set up an interview in the middle of the day on a saturday. Unfortunately, was not able to return call right away. When I did return call, I was told due to amount of people responding only phone interviews would be conducted. I was told manager would call back a couple hours later to conduct this phone interview on the same day. So cleared my schedule and waited for our set time at 2:30pm. She never called.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at L'Occitane.

    Interview Details

    I came in for an application and was interviewed on the spot. I felt like some of my answers were ignored and the manager was more interested in hiring me than what I had to say. After there was a Skype interview with the DM. At this point I forums the DM to be very condescending and considered not accepting the position after my encounter with her. The interview was very unprofessional and disrespectful on the DMs part.

    Interview Questions
