COMPENSATION THAT IS MARKET-COMPETITIVE

Compensation is regularly adjusted in line with the market, individual performance and efficiency in the post, qualifications and experience. Local salary structures are regularly assessed in terms of the outside market but also in terms of internal salary levels for equal responsibility, skills and experience.

Finally, L’Oréal is investing in the long-term security of its employees by committing to offer benefit programs (which may include retirement, health care, death and disability plans) and other fringe benefits in line with the regulations and practice in each country, which will complement the compulsory schemes.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact about assessment interview, was by email after completing the application form online. Only one assessment centre in London, seemed informal. Candidates were asked to have a presentation to hand. There wasn't a one on one interview for this initial stage as this was the first round, however candidates were expected to show knowledge of the company and the cosmetic industry.
