I have been working at Loro Piana
-The depth of content & self-serving resources to us about the product & provenance are unmatched. (The people who do not appreciate the effort & pride put into every piece don't belong.) -The level of retail customer is superior to any sportswear company. -Being constantly challenged & asked to integrate your business is a gift. (This is not the place where you can chit-chat & wait for your turn, you will be left behind. So many other brands encourage the associates brains to turn to mush.) -Large hourly & commission (you will be expected to earn your keep.) -Those who prove they embrace company initiatives are well-supported.
1. Too many different focuses at once. 2. Slower-paced in general
Advice to Management
Be forthcoming in the interview that there will be constant tests, role-playing, & not what one imagines or experienced as a luxury seller. The applicant needs to know there are both intellectual & integrated work demands/expectation.

- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Loro Piana.
Total of 3 interviews over a 6 week timeframe. Interview process was long and position was not clearly communicated in terms of scope and responsibilities; lots of generalizations on day to day tasks, were not specific to what they were really looking for. Lots of back and forth as far as next steps in interview process and when and who the interview was taking place with.

Reasons for Declining
They weren't able to clearly communicate the position they were looking to fill so I wasn't sure that it would be a right fit.
