    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.
