Industry Leader

working with the industry leader has its own fair chances of advantages and disadvantages, would suggest everyone sit back and enjoy the time. The company will give you immense comfort and exposure for you to shine

Hard work, low pay

Toxic work environment. Annual pay raises are a joke. Expensive benefits that aren't very good. Hard to get time off. It's a huge company so it's very business minded. They don't know your name or care much about you. They only care about the bottom line and money made.

Pros

Pension

Cons

Micromanagement, low pay, hard work

Insufficient training

Very disappointing. Requires part time candidates to endure extensive background check and drug screen. Very difficult to retain staffing they are able to pass pre employment screening .

It was a job

IT’s manufacturing and it pays the bills. Not the worst by far but the higher up executives have no idea what really goes on. It could be a lot worse.

Great place to work

Lots of OT, overall the place is a good place to work. The management is pretty reasonable. If you make a mistake, it does help the packaging experience to work here.

Pros

Overtime volunteer

Cons

Mandatory overtime

Work you like a dog with worst pay imaginable

its honestly exhausting to live while working for that company, if you get in find a way up or out immediately. The 40 hour work week tends to be 45-50 hours in-store, no over time pay but are expected to work and finish tasks on time, they do not give you all the information you need to succeed but create 'tools for success' that are basically extra work they are giving you to pretend they are doing their jobs right. you hear rumours of extortion and none discloser contracts because they don't pay you for your position unless you are fully trained.

Pros

networking (only if you're friends with the right people), customers are usually kind

Cons

basically no breaks, stressful experiences with management, will be fake to your face and you'll hear about it later, there is always an excuse for you not doing a good enough job, you work from home a lot, no sympathy for days off, they cut off all your corners and back you into a corner, you feel like you cant leave or succeed without them, etc.

OK Place to work

L'Oréal is an OK place to work at only if you're in the right department. I was unfortunate to work in the Analytical department and it was worst department. Management sucked, always overwhelmed with the workload. You always have to watch your back with your colleagues because they will report you to Management for anything or just because they either don't like you or want to go up the ladder. Worst experience ever.

Senior Management ruins everything

There is simply too much red tape at loreal. The culture can vary greatly from one area to another depending on your leadership, so it's a coin flip.

Pros

Benefits, ability to move around within

Cons

blame culture, executive decisions that dont make sense

It’s ok.

The work is pretty straightforward for a reach truck driver. You bring bottle to the lines and finished goods to the dock when finished. It’s not a bad job.

It’s not worth it

I worked at the Piscataway plant on the night shift and it’s not worth it. They’re long shifts and while the work isn’t hard, you can’t get work done. The supply rooms are never stocked with what we need: wrap, cleaners, etc. Night shift always has to clean up after morning shift, anything they didn’t feel like doing. We do not have any mechanics on our shift really, so if something goes wrong you as a packaging operator are expected to fix it or you sit there for hours. The mechanics that we do have are burnt out and leaving or have told me they are planning to. So honestly, even though we desperately need mechanics, don’t Apply. They’ll mandate you every single day and expect you to look after all 3 production floors and all their machines. L’Oréal’s biggest emphasis is production and they will badger you if you don’t make that production, even though we literally can’t make production if we don’t have mechanics or supplies. You know why leadership mandates so much? Because the more you produce, the more they make. So don’t overwork yourself to get these guys their bonus, they’re already making triple what you make. It gets to the point where leadership will make you take your break later so you can run someone else’s line through THEIR break just to get an extra 15 minutes of production, all the time. They watch the cameras all the time to make sure that you don’t eat, take too long of a break, or go on your phone. Understandable, but with supervisors doing their rounds every few minutes and a “team” that comes in the morning to shuffle through our trash to make sure we didn’t -

Company Store Perks

Amazing workplace culture, lots of opportunity for growth.If you are lucky to join a team that has the same way of working as you it will be an amazing experience.

One of the best places I've worked

As a whole the company was very easy to work for. And then the management and rest of the team, just made it better. The company itself puts so much into training it's employees and making sure they have the tools to feel confident and knowledgeable. The stores I've gotten to work for have been filled with fun, supportive team members that made going to work that much easier. I miss my team! Highly recommend!

Good work life balance but can be stressful

Good work life balance Can be stressful at times but that’s any job. Good company who does try and make employees lives better through pay and time off. French way of doing things can take getting used to.
