Supply Planning Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 18, 2017
I had a lot of fun interning here. They really provide a lot of events and resources for their interns. I had meaningful projects and got to learn a lot about what having a full time job would be like. Would definitely recommend this internship experience
Assistant Vice President of Distribution (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 8, 2017
This is a very well ran company with great marketers. They have solid results year after year in terms of sales and earnings. My only issue is that all roads eventually will lead you to New Jersey and the cost of housing there is prohibitive and I did not want to drive and hour and a half to work.
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – Galloway, AR – August 15, 2017
Bad company to work for unless you're on full time and that's if you even get full time. They lie all the time about pay and work days. Do not care about personal matters that happen to you, steal money out of your paycheck for no reason. Do not keep their employees updated on any work schedule at all.
Raises, holiday cook outs, breaks
Healthcare, pay vs time, rules, schedules, management, job security
During a typical work week, one of my biggest tasks is checking in on my staff and assessing their progress on various projects. I like to meet first thing on Monday to discuss our priorities for the week, then meet again in the middle of the week to check progress, and meet once at the end of the week to discuss goal setting for the next week. I meet with smaller groups of my staff during the middle of the week to troubleshoot any issues.
We had a nice Cafeteria and a clean building.
Very high stress and un appreciated Management staff.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 4, 2017
I enjoyed learning about the products and meeting consumers and people in the beauty industry. Work here can be very stressful sometimes mainly because of the unrealistically high expectations from management.
There are good things and bad things it depends on your manager and how seasoned they are. Younger managers try to prove themselves and take team for granted. Older managers try to protect team and push you. Not a lot of money in bonus, count on about 20 plus on top of salary.
The Pros and Cons as a Contractual Worker at L'Oreal
Administrative Assistant III (Current Employee) – Piscataway, NJ – June 16, 2017
I really like and enjoy my contributing role as a contractor at L'Oreal. It is challenging and I am never limited in learning something new.
The con of working for L'Oreal as a temporary employee is that there is a constant reminder that you are not a part of the L'Oreal family. Below are a few examples of the difference between working for L'Oreal as a permanent employee vs. a temporary employee:
1) Temporary employees are not permitted to park in the employee parking lot. They have to park in a lot that is a 5-7 minute walk from the entrance of the building. 2) During the Thanksgiving holiday temporary employees were not allowed to partake in the free holiday meal and was not extended an offer to even purchase the meal. 3) Temporary employees are not allowed to partake in the Plant wide Volunteer Day activities.
While some of these management decisions may be understood for a short-term assignment... I strongly believe that this practice should be revisited simply because temporary employees contributes to the success of the organization too.
If you're looking for a job with a great pay, this is the job for you. They pay at least $11.50 per hour, and $15 for every hour over time. The downside is you will have to dedicate A LOT of your time to this job. MANDATORY OVER TIME. This includes weekends as well.
Has a great cafeteria, great food, and chefs. And a l'oreal store on facility which you get a discount.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – April 13, 2017
L'Oreal USA is a wonderful company, which provides amazing benefits, and offers a very competitive salary! There are also many great people within.
However, where this company takes a plunge is with their District Managers and Store Management. For the most part they tend to be very unprofessional, and take favoritism to a new level. This being said, your career advancement does lie in the hands of your DM, SM and ASM. If you are not ok with them, you are never going to be able to get promoted or advance with this company.
