LVMH – Why Work For Us?


PERPETUATING THE FUTURE OF TRADITION


"LVMH offers its employees a unique professional environment shaped by excellence: a universe enriched by the diversity of our Houses, their métiers and their geographic locations. A universe where every single person has the opportunity to build their own career path. A universe where men and women make the difference. Their talents are, more than elsewhere, an essential competitive asset that underpins the success of our Houses.

Creating the conditions for them to succeed within our ecosystem is a guarantee of long-term performance. This is why our ability to attract and develop the most talented people is the cornerstone of our human resources policy: we are a talent academy.

Joining LVMH means choosing a passionately stimulating environment that offers motivating career opportunities with a Group that is strongly committed to encouraging and supporting each person’s professional goals. It means becoming part of a Group that is the leader in its industry, with an unrivaled global presence, which reinvents itself every day to constantly rise to new challenges: growth, internationalization, development of physical and digital retailing, and more. It means working in richly diverse teams and interlinking our stories with those of the brands whose rich heritage we represent as we perpetuate the Future of Tradition."

Chantal Gaemperle,
Group Executive Vice President, Human Resources and Synergies

At LVMH, we are convinced that our employees make the difference, demonstrating on a daily basis behaviors that bring our fundamental values – at the very basis of our long-term performance – to life:

BE CREATIVE & INNOVATIVE
Creativity and innovation are part of our DNA. Over the years, they have ensured our Houses’ success and established their legitimacy. This combination of creativity and innovation is the foundation of our Houses and figures at the heart of the delicate balance required to continually renew our offer while resolutely looking to the future, always respecting our unique heritage.

DELIVER EXCELLENCE
At LVMH, we never compromise on quality. Because we embody the world of craftsmanship in its most noble and accomplished form, we pay meticulous attention to detail and to perfection. From products to service, we cultivate our difference through this constant quest for excellence.

CULTIVATE AN ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT
LVMH has an agile and decentralized organization that encourages efficiency and responsiveness. It stimulates individual initiative by entrusting each person with significant responsibilities. Our entrepreneurial spirit encourages both risk-taking and perseverance. It requires pragmatic thinking and an ability to motivate teams, leading them to achieve ambitious objectives.

LVMH and its Houses seek to attract, recruit and develop the most talented individuals, whatever their level of experience. The diversity of our ecosystem offers each person unparalleled career opportunities, and therefore holds a definite appeal for candidates.

The LVMH group regards diversity as a source of wealth. As such, it is committed to recruiting without discrimination on the grounds of age, gender, opinions or any other individual personal characteristic. Moreover, LVMH continually monitors whether commitments to job applicants are respected through recruitment discrimination tests. Our recruiters and managers are also trained to prevent discrimination.

The Group recruitsexceptional people capable of combining pragmatic and creative thinking with an entrepreneurial mindset and international vision. We seek people who feel a strong affinity with high-quality products. Unsurprisingly, some candidates have a background in luxury, but others have worked in innovative sectors characterized by the creativity and uniqueness of its products and services, excellence in delivery, and the quality of customer service.

Special attention is paid to induction for new employees within our Houses. Immersion in the culture, history and positioning of the House guarantees understanding of the brand’s strategy and the demands it faces, and therefore ensures performance.

As the Houses are closest to the markets and their customers’ requirements, they enjoy a very high degree of autonomy in the management of their human resources, from recruitment to career plans, including training. But as they belong to the same Group, they are also managed in a way that focuses on common values such as the paramount importance of individual talent and the firm belief that individuals can make a difference.

The priority for LVMH Human Resources is to build strong, creative and passionate teams and developing their skills through an ambitious program based on two strong levers: training and mobility.

1. Our richly varied ecosystem, with a wide range of Houses, métiers and geographic locations, offers each member of the Group unrivaled career opportunities. Annually, 2,400 managers benefit from mobility within the Group, and this figure has risen steadily in recent years. All managerial roles are concerned: for example, ¾ of general management positions are filled through internal promotions. LVMH deploys significant resources to promote and facilitate mobility: Human Resources and operational mobility committees, career interviews, the “job posting” platform on the Group Intranet, and more. This exchange of talents between companies continually brings the Group fresh energy and creativity, enriching our pool of competencies.

2. Training is an essential tool that every employee must make use of in order to develop. During the annual evaluation, managers and their teams discuss the development program to be undertaken. This must provide a solution to both each employee’s professional aspirations and the organization’s business challenges. A vast array of training programs has therefore been established by the Group, Houses and regions, in order to provide a perfect solution to the needs of each employee and each organization. A variety of themes are tackled – culture, business challenges, “métiers”, management, products – and adapted according to the level of responsibility. LVMH therefore created the LVMH House, a strategic learning platform to train its senior executive.

    Pros

    I worked for LVMH fragrances and I love my team we all collaborated to make our goals. We had a common goal and it was clear what was expected of us. I really appreciated our team leader and our territory manager who always had resources for us to complete the very demanding numbers.

    The people I worked with are great. The product is top notch which makes selling it a breeze. Pay was fair for all the work you put in.

    Cons

    Most of the time it is long hours and short breaks. You have to like sales if not you'll have a hard time loving it.

    Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LVMH (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Skype video interview was first with HR from NYC and then in person interview with local marketing team. Skype was great actually, even if it was nerve-wracking. The HR Director is sharp and easy to talk to. The in person part felt more accusatory, like you aren't qualified and I'm going to make sure you know that. It felt more combative. The VP was engaging and smart and I really wanted to work for him, but there's a woman on the team that's almost rude in interviews and seems like a miserable person to work with/for. Even if I got the offer, I'd have turned it down as she was very unpleasant.
