Great opportunities if you work hard.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at Christian Dior full-time

ProsEsteemed company to work for that offers great pay and incentives. If you work hard and do your job, the sky is the limit to grow with the company. Great opportunities at free standing boutiques.

ConsWork- life balance can be a challenge if you allow it. Wish there were more opportunities for associates to get a great deal on product.

Advice to Senior ManagementDefine the leased boutiques.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great company to work for.

Counter Manager (Current Employee)
Las Vegas, NV

I have been working at Christian Dior full-time for more than a year

ProsNo real complaints about this company.

ConsNot much room for growth within the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be a more competitively generous gratis allowance seeing as though the price point of the products are high and other lesser priced companies/producers receive a higher dollar amount for seasonal gratis.

Tough, but learned a lot

Assistant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Christian Dior full-time for more than a year

ProsYou get to work with some really talented people. These people know their stuff and are extremely talented. If you don't get frustrated with some of the pettiness and can stick it out, you can learn a lot.

ConsIt can be petty and somewhat unprofessional at times, but that can be true for any job. Didn't seem like their was a lot of opportunity for growth within the company. If you were good at your job, they didn't want you to move up.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open and honest with employees.

Sales Associate

Great company, fabulous products!

Feelance Make-up Artist (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Christian Dior

ProsI love the products by Christian Dior! They have the best skincare and the most beautiful colors of make up.

ConsI travel some as a make up artist and that can get tedious. Retail overall is a difficult job to do. SALES, SALES, SALES!

Advice to Senior ManagementI love the brand and I wouldn't change a thing! I have always loved it, I would say keep it glamourous!

I worked for Dior Joaillerie for a year. Great product for millionaires and nothing inbetween. Unrealistic targets.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Christian Dior full-time for more than a year

ProsThe training at Dior was quite interesting, the quality of the product they are selling is on the whole very high. A varied and international staff.

ConsThe management set unrealistic targets for the product the company has available to sell. All the best pieces are travelling the world and there is no new collections to excite the clients you have. insanely expensive.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate product ranges to excite existing clients and have stock availability for them to come see and try them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Inspiring company, not digital first

Digital Intern (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

I worked at Christian Dior as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat communication / marketing budgets, inspiring work and products, true brand legitimacy and history, competitive compensation and good benefits (LVMH)

ConsVery still in terms of career opportunities, digital does not come first in terms of planning, quite stressful (a lot of last-minute and urgent tasks)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
