I worked at Louis Vuitton North America part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The best thing about working at Louis Vuitton is that you get to learn about the brand, the name of the bags and the sales are amazing.
You get to meet nice customer and sometimes not so nice.

Cons

The staff was not so pleasant to work with. They were very arrogant. The management team is so picky about everything. It is like working at the army.

    I worked at Louis Vuitton North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Almost 70-90% off of discontinued LV items or LV items with minor scratches or flaws, including previous season shoes.
    -30% off regular items in store
    -Uniforms each season provides, including free dry cleaning

    Cons

    -Long work days and sometimes required to work through lunches.
    -NC state law does not require lunch breaks and managers don't care if you eat
    -Store managers have TOO much control and are afraid of losing their spot as store manager so if you have potential to take their position, they WILL get rid of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for surveys from employees, regarding store management

    Great place to learn about luxury, but not a place to build a career path.

    Pros

    Louis Vuitton is the gold standard for luxury accessory retail. To learn their values and the story behind their craftsmanship is truly inspiring, and it can be fun to educate customers about the heritage of the brand. LV is a sterling luxury brand which never goes on sale and only has become more popular in recent years. The products essentially "sell themselves" and there is a nice mix of truly VIP high roller type clients and regular types. It is great to have on your resume and a good experience to have under your belt - it opens doors.

    Cons

    The situation is what you make of it, but a lot on the retail side depends on who you work for or which store. Because LV is in 50 or so countries much of the running of the stores is done locally and there are little companies that you will be a part of. The executive sales team is very competitive internally. What is a pro of LV - they attract TOP educated talent (Harvard Business School, Wharton MBA's, etc.) - can also be a con. During my time at the company we had several top executives end up running regions of stores with no retail experience with mixed results. As a manager it was challenging to develop my team, there are few tools (because so much is locally run) and I sometimes encouraged associates to leave the brand in order to get more experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire McKinsey or Accenture to evaluate field organization.
