Its great to work for a brand that is so versatile in the market, I get the privilege to work with many different people from all walks of life putting together events, and spas that are fun and revenue building for the brand.
Great environment, IF you're a permanent employee.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – March 23, 2016
This company thrives off hiring temps. They hire countless temps that outnumber the permanent employees. It creates a bad environment when the perms are getting paid a LOT more to do the same work as the temps. There needs to be a structure with an end date where the temp is temp to perm after a certain time period.
This company, as I'm sure a lot of other companies do, hires people based on if they have a relative that works at the company. They do not care if they are completely under qualified, as long as they have a relative that's an employee they're golden.
Overall, a majority of the people hired are hard, intelligent workers who do their jobs correctly. There is a lot of intellectual thinking that goes on within the labs.

Manufacturing Support and Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – January 15, 2016
A typical day of work was to read the PO's and start the day with a great attitude. I learned a lot about Manufacturing and Warehouse, also to Operate some machines. Management were excellent. My co-workers were very friendly and also they always were ready to help me in anything I need at work. The hardest part of the job, I believe was sometimes we have to lift heavy machinery and chemicals. The most enjoyable part of the job was that every single employee cooperate in the job.
Bonus, Gift certificates, Family Pic nic, Chritsmas Party, Sick day bonus. Very good Health Insurance

-Estee Lauder is a great company to work for and holds a beautiful story behind it. This woman had a dream and a passion for cosmetics, and she went for it! This company is constantly growing, and has many other brands on board. -Job is very hands on, introducing skincare and make up tutorials is crucial in building business. -Having great customer skills, and building lasting connections. The customer overall experience is important, it is what sets you apart from the competition. -Coworkers are generally ok, in the cosmetics department it is hard to have positive relationships. Others like to gossip, or walk away with your business, which means your counter loses $$. It is better to keep to yourself. -Management is completely unorganized at Macy's not Estee Lauder. That is what has made it most difficult to work for this cosmetics brand. I was not in love with my work environment. There was a lack of care for employees. -The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and building business, just watching all the hard work turn into positive growth made me feel proud.
