    I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good
    Training provided is useful

    Cons

    If you raise an issue against your team or management, you’re immediately forced to leave the company.
    As a brand who speaks of equality and fairness, they’re quick to brush issues under the carpet especially serious issues such as bullying.
    Staff shop is awful, the products are never available or majority of the stock isn’t even there. Shipping costs crazy amounts.
    No compassion in regards to employees personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has flaws, INCLUDING management. Instead of getting rid of those who speak up, listen to them and help improve the working environment. It’s not just “retail”, it’s where we spend a lot of our days and deserve to be understood and respected. Regardless of our job title.

    I worked at L'Oréal part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discount... that’s about it the rest is negative

    Cons

    Apart from the discount everything is a con. I worked for YSL beauty owned by the Loreal brand for 2 years..they expect you to work stupid hours be fully flexible to the point the staff rota constantly changed without them even telling you, you get treated and spoke to like a child from upper management when they come to visit, constant turnover in staff, wasn’t given yearly pay rise on top of my appalling salary (No excuse as to why). MY ADVISE DO NOT WORK HERE UNLESS YOU WANT NO LIFE AND TO BE MADE TO FEEL UNAPPRECIATED

    Advice to Management

    Start looking after staff!

    I worked at L'Oréal full-time

    Pros

    The people there are fantastic, everyone is very passionate about what they're doing and really focused and driven on getting things done

    Cons

    The politics. a lot of big egos (and a lot of denying there are big egos). A lot of talk about career progression when actually and staying in a role for 2 years when actually this is only a rule for some when they need it. It came across that meaningful progression really was only available to those who were part of the management scheme
