A typical day of work is exhausting when working with high manufacturing demands there is never any downtime. I have effectively learned to multitask and prioritize every aspect of my job. Management is very supportive there is so much going on in a 24/7 facility that we are extremely independent. I thoroughly enjoy everyone that i work with at L'Oreal – more... i know that we will stay in touch for the rest of our lives. The hardest part of the job is time management squeezing 12 hours of work into and 8 hour day. The most enjoyable part of the job are the company events like volunteer day where we get to venture out and give back to the community. – less
Pros: early work hours 6:00 am - 2:30 pm love being home early
My daily responsibility’s consist of , running reports to prioritise incoming components, Inspect, and release upon approvals in a timely manor. Report any discrepancys to management, follow through with nonconsistancys, reject if needed.
We have continous training on safety, policies and how the company is progressing. I keep a focus on my work area – more... to be safe and clear of any hazards at all times. We have a great group of co-workers, (one reason it makes it difficult to leave) as we can all pair up and knock out any priority with great team work in action.
There is no default about my work, each day is a new challange waiting to be unraveled and concurred. We work very independently without having over the shoulder input unless needed. Unfortunately the company has decided to relocate and I am not able to relocate with them. – less

Engineers perform more task outside their role (data management, art work approvals) than actual engineering
Packaging Engineer (Current Employee), Clark, NJ – September 8, 2013
Pros: diverse group of employees, typically allows for employees to change roles in company
Cons: disconnect between french and us employees, work life balance, management
You are given a lot of responsibility and projects once you have started and a lot is expected in terms of engineers providing risk assessment for packages that are selected by marketing. You are always performing a myriad amount of tasks during the day that makes the day fly by. You are exposed to a lot of different technologies and molding methods – more... which is a positive. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the amount of projects and following the lengthy amount of procedures that are used as guideline to how a project should be worked on. – less
First off, the expectation level is higher than what any human being could possibly possess. As a manager, undoubtedly more is expected of you then your employees, but to give an example of how i was personally treated as well as other managers of the same district, i worked 3 months solid by MYSELF 63 hours a week, open to close monday-saturday in – more... a very high volume store with absolutely NO HELP. I could not hire my own employees, they had to be hired by my district manager. The stress alone during that time made me lose a lot of weight, i was constantly sick, and didnt get a smidgen of sympathy, in fact, they told me work the 63 hours or not have a job. I love L'Oreal themselves but salon centric was the worst company they could have ever bought into. – less
Good secure work setting, close friendly employees.
