    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Louis Vuitton North America (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Went in the store and turned in a resume. I got a call about a week later to come in for an in-person interview. The interview was extremely relaxed (one-on-one) and it lasted for maybe a little over half an hour. We went over my work history, the store environment, and just some back and forth questions for each other. I got a call back within three days to come in again for an interview with the Store Director. However, I actually didn't get to meet the Store Director because she ended up being on a call/meeting so I had another interview with someone else from Management. This interview was a little less relaxed but not to a point where it made me nervous or uncomfortable. This person brought an "interview/hiring process" type handbook and flipped through it as she read off the questions.

    I was called back a little over a week later by the Store Director and we had a very brief phone call (5 minutes) about the store and what are my expections are...etc.

    Three days later they called back and made me an offer.

    Interview

    pretty conversational they just wanted practical answers. basically asking for behavioral questions and see if you can work under pressure and work well with the manager. They look for previous sales experience and wanted to know how do you handle difficult customers or those demanding for returns. Make sure to be flexible with work hours. A plus if you speak several languages

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Louis Vuitton North America in August 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to the Store Director in August 2014 and about a week later I received and email from Human Resources stating that they wanted to meet me.
    The first interview with the Store Director was about an hour long. We talked about the opportunities of the business as well as demographics and the mall it was located in. It was very relaxed yet direct in terms of the questions asked. A week after I interviewed with Human Resources which was just revisiting how my interview went and she informed me that they would like for me to meet with the Area Director, this took about 2 weeks before we finally spoke. This interview was very in depth, he wanted to know about my previous positions, my management style, some of my successes and how I plan on making business happen if I am selected. It went very well and I was sure at this point I would be job offered and than I received a call from HR and an email from the Store Director stating that they had an internal transfer last minute, however they wanted to keep me in mind for future positions. A month went by and I receive a call from HR again saying they wanted me to meet another store director for a new opportunity that opened up so I did. That went well, and I was told that I would know by the end of the week. Two weeks went by and I later found out that they retracted their notice. I had 4 more interviews after that before I was job offered. watheyupdate.founthatthattheytgretrac

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Louis Vuitton North America in March 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted via email about a week later to set up a phone interview. I have to say that I have never encountered such a rude, unprofessional interviewer. He talked over me repeatedly, dismissed nearly everything I said and seemingly purposefully misinterpreted my statements. I realize this could come across as sour grapes but, honestly, it was all I could do to keep my composure. I can't imagine why he wasted his time calling when a) the position I applied for was no longer available and b) he seemed loathe to even consider me for it in the first place. I was professional throughout the call and thanked him for his time but, seriously, what a horrible first point of contact for such a reputable company! If and when the store manager contacts me to follow up I will be very hesistant to move forward. If you are applying to LVNA in the South Eastern district, be on guard in case you have your initial interview with this piece of work.

    After I submitted my resume directly at the store I received a call from the manager asking me if I was interested to come in for an interview. The interview setting was very relaxed, we sat in one of the sitting areas in front of the store at the mall. The manager began asking me basic questions about my resume, interests, background and why I wanted to work with the company. He was very respectful and clear with how the store works and what they were looking for. Towards the end of the interview he told me that if they decided to move forward with me they would call me.

    Interview

    I Interviewed for a public relations internship position that a connection told me about. They asked me to come in the next day I emailed, so that felt a little bit rushed and I wish I had more time to prepare. I met with the PR manager for women's wear and menswear respectively. They were both nice and polite, but they made it clear that they are just looking for someone to get coffee, make photocopies, and pack garment bags in the closet.
