    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Occitane.

    Interview

    Got a reply from one of the managers for setting up a phone interview, after two weeks of my application. On the day of the interview, no call. I then sent two follow-up emails, asking for rescheduling. She read the emails but completely ghosted. Totally unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at L'Occitane.

    Interview

    HR contacted me for a phone screening, then they invited me for an in person interview at their office. The interview was smooth, timely, and not intimidating at all. I interviewed with two people and was contacted within a week. I wish other employers would follow this type of timeline and punctuality.

    Sales Associate/Keyholder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    When I arrived the current associate working didn't even acknowledge me, she was helping a customer and would not look at me to tell me that she would let the manager know I was there. I waited in the store until the manager came out on her own. She greeted me and said to follow her and that we would be outside. She seemed friendly at first, but my availability is what really made the interview take a different turn. This was a part time position and it seemed like they only want you to have that job for their random scheduled hours. (I already have a first job) The whole experience seemed a little strange. At the end, she gave me some samples to take home and try.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at L'Occitane.

    Interview

    They have to hire more effectively and not waste time with nonsense. I had to talk with the store manager twice in person, the district manager around five times over phone and in person (not including emails), the regional manager once over phone (the first time she didn't even call) and human resources once. There was a background check that took weeks if not a full month. It was around three months total

    Interview Questions

    • How did you contribute to the overall sales in your last position?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They are stingy with negotiations, but if you push enough they have some give with pay seeing that they invested all this time with interviews and background check
