Consultant Hair Care/Assisant Manager Hair Care (Former Employee), Piscataway, NJ – August 20, 2014
Pros: commitment to on-site and off-site training; flexible work schedule
Cons: i really have nothing negative to say about colgate.
Colgate really does care about its people. I was given many opportunities to advance as well as the support I needed so that I would succeed. Since leaving I've discovered that not every company gets this right or even cares to make an investment in its employees.
Relaxed atmosphere and very family oriented company.

Enjoyed the professional and friendly environment. Enjoyed working with all levels of management and learned how to prioritize workload and deal with deadlines. Worked closely with various departments and had heavy interaction with co-workers in other areas of Human Resources. Most difficult part of my job in Human Resources was dealing with terminations – more... and conducting exit interviews. I enjoyed mostly the diversity of the people and the many cultures that made up the talented workforce at Colgate-Palmolive. – less
Enjoyed and learned new facets of business in this arena. Work handled was too scientific in nature. Lot of exposure in to product sciences and market dynamics along with brand equity.

Pros: uniform washed and ready for you. free steel caps provided.
Cons: shift work with a baby (who is now 19)
Colgate had a two month interviewing selection period and I was offered a position. Straight away you felt like family. Was hard work but if you found a problem someone would help, as I would help others too. Uniforms were provided and laundered and the money was good, for the 1990's. You had to be organised with a good nights sleep behind you because – more... you would be running all day. A lot of paperwork, loading and unloading trucks on my forklift. A lot of moving pallets, equipment around inside on my reach-truck. The hardest part was cleaning out the waste plant out the back on night shift twice a week. I got someone to help me the first few times. The people were great, we all worked as a team. The managament mostly stayed in their offices but came out to congratulate you for loading those three trucks straight away through your lunch break. I learnt organisation is a must in every detail of your work. To liaise with a variety of truck drivers, be thorough but efficient. Keep yourself and your uniform respectable and polite and always to ask if you need a hand. – less
