Supply Chain Planer/Buyer for External Operations (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – July 21, 2018
I used to work for another company before Coty acquired the brand I worked in. The year + I spent there had some challenges that were reasonable and probably common for a transition as big is this was. In general, Coty was a good company to work for. Their benefits are excellent and salary was above average. I learned a lot in the time I was there. A typical day during this time after we settled into the specific company planning role, was typical. They are very fast paced. What I enjoyed most of my time there, were all the people I met and getting to learn so many different things.
Arrived at 8 am or before. Had 7 reports due my 8:30 am, then pull data and have a report due at 9:30 am, another one due by 11. Then lunch for an hour. I would get back and have three more daily reports to do. As soon as, I was done with those I would have to help anyone that had questions or needed help finding things on SAP. Anyone, from the accounting department to marketing department, to A/R or A/P. My director helped a lot and was much like a mentor to me. My manager was out a lot due to health reasons, so I learned a lot myself. The best part with the company was how goal oriented the whole team was. Everybody helped each other. And the 45 minutes to drive to work daily. The most enjoyable part was learning the SAP systems bells and whistles.
Great company, the importance of my work, and how much I learned and grew within the company
Manager was out sick and had to jump right in and learned SAP on my own.
Executive Assistant, Vice President, R&D (Former Employee) – Little Falls, NJ – June 4, 2018
I loved my temporary Executive Assistant position at Coty, Inc. In supporting 1 Vice President and 1 Senior Director of Research & Development, a typical day was fast-paced, required expert multitasking ability, heavy, fluid calendar management, regular follow-up and follow-through with my VP's 5 global teams ensuring they submitted reports on time, working independently with no supervision, teaming up with colleagues to plan and prepare for corporate special events, frequently handle catering needs for small and large meetings. The company culture was extremely positive and team-oriented. The CEO was very transparent in Town Hall meetings about the direction and plans for the company. I was well respected, liked and trusted by everyone I worked with.
At Coty I learned how to be a team player and get better in my communication skills. Everyone helps you out if you have trouble or questions about the job. You learn something new everyday and that makes work better because you're always advancing and growing in your work career.
Business Development (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 9, 2018
Business units within an organization must work together to accomplish goals. The general manager is responsible for communicating the team mission and fostering an environment that builds consensus and gains cooperation from others in order to accomplish the mission. Effective managers know how to develop, encourage, maintain and reward cooperative work relationships. They understand how to facilitate teamwork and foster trust and commitment. Without a standard of behavior when interacting with others, effective teamwork will not happen.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 2, 2018
A typical day at work consists of representing a brand or product and promoting it in a way that is suitable for the company. I learned everything I could learn about the product and used what I learned to present it to clients and create and report sales. This allows great creativity and independence in a steadily changing industry where a brand ambassador must adapt in order to continue to create sales. The most enjoyable part of the job is traveling to different locations and interacting with and creating new clients.
Retail Store Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 30, 2018
Horrible locations, management talks a lot does not accomplish anything. Lack of communication. No training program set in place. Managers must act fast and they are practically alone to figure things out.
