Sales Associate (Former Employee) – NOTL – 4 May 2016
Check sale receipts from day before and make sure all registers are balanced, greet and attend to guest and ring up purchases. At end of day check sales and balance registers then clean and dust shelves etc.
This job taught me how to work well as a team as well as being able to communicate with different cultures as the store was located in a tourist destination.
The hardest part of the job was during off season when things were slower and not being able to interact much with customers.
My favourite part of the job was working with skincare Products and fragrances and I enjoyed demonstrating and telling the stories behind the products to customers.
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 September 2016
Pros -discount on all products -free monthly gratis -great coworkers -lack of support from upper management Cons -extremely low wages -no room for growth -unreasonable sales targets -too many new products that customers don't care for Advice to Management Pay your employees more and appreciate them and maybe there will be less turnover.

Working at L'Occitane helps individuals gain sales skills, yet the hours are terrible. The team I worked with was fantastic, I am a fan of the company and their products, but the hours discussed prior to working there do not suit the hours provided; I am aware that it is not a retail job's fault, but the hours are very unbalanced and no where near what was expected (one week I am assigned 30 hours and another I am assigned 4 hours; making me feel insecure about how I am going to go about paying for school, my rent, etc..). Overall, awesome job, company, and team, but the scheduling needs to be worked on :)

The most enjoyable part of the day is talking with the customers. I talk with different persons, they explain their needs about skincare or a product in particular. I give them my advice and it is useful. They leave the store satisfied.

L'Occitane is a great company to work for. The products are fantastic and provide men and women with an affordable way to rejuvenate their skin. Management is outstanding and provide great incentives to continue to work hard.
