At every stage of your career with L’Oréal we offer personalized training and support that will help you progress and develop your career. You hold the keys: it’s up to you to show who you are and what you can become.
We therefore encourage mobility which helps our executives, both junior and senior talents, to rapidly acquire experience by being faced with a range of different cultures, business approaches and market situations.
In L’Oréal's people-centered culture, the diversity of the teams is one of the success factors. Fostering the values of all forms of multiculturalism and respect for differences, the group is enriched by employees from various horizons that enable it to gain a better understanding of the diversity of its consumers and markets.
In this way, the group makes diversity an essential value that goes hand in hand with respect for the individual. Integrating the concept of diversity on every level and in every area is to recognize and accept differences but also to promote them to enhance performance. L’Oréal's ambition to win over one billion new consumers is therefore intrinsically linked to its desire to become one of the world leaders in the management of diversity.

I have been working at L'Oréal full-time (Less than a year)
Great company, development focused and great benefits
nothing relevant to bring up, but it might be a hard business if you are not interested in beauty
I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal.
Applied online through their website. A week later, I received a telephone interview. They explained to me what the interview was going to be like and confirmed my details. Then I was asked questions about the company and competency questions relating to my previous experience. They finished by asking if I had any questions for them.
