Great School - however one must eventually graduate
Group Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Montreal, QuebecAugust 13, 2013
L'Oreal provides employees with superb training and coaching. The challenge is that eventually the excessive demands on your personal life begin to outweigh the professional benefits. Reluctance to challenge status quo is another challenge they currently face and as a result many key players resign or go on burn out leave. As a manager who works hard to retain and motivate employees these are red flags that are a major concern. I appreciate my time at L'Oreal and credit them with helping me to excel and become the astute business woman I am today. Like all experiences in life, it was time to leave and try new opportunities.
Pros
training, coaching, national campaigns, benefits, free product, learning and development, commeraderie, passionate peers, international mandate
Cons
excessively long hours, lack of upper management accountability, passive agressive and non-transparent management styles, bullying from vps and directors, 75% of time ppt presentations instead of marketing work, environment based largely on fear.

Very fun and active work place
Order Picker (Current Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QCJuly 13, 2013
Great place to work, salary is great but as a temporary worker you have no benefits and hours are not flexible if you have children. But after 2 years...so far so good.

Come in the store
Puch before start working

When finish your shift count your cash

Company is not "worth it"
sales (Former Employee) –  CanadaJune 4, 2013
a typical day at work
--Is not 9-5, people work extremely long hours with no work life balance

what you learned
--They expect you to perform and encourage to show-up colleagues to "standout" from the rest

management
--Some great managers in the company, but unfortunately not in my department.

your co-workers
--Can be both amazing and at the same time back-stabbing.
--Co-workers will not hesitate to screw you over if it means they will be getting a promotion

the hardest part of the job
--Remaining in a professional mind-set when everything individuals do within the company is in their own interest as opposed to company longterm benefit

the most enjoyable part of the job
--Benefits, salary, discount on products
Pros
alot of politics, high turnover, people with little to no experience in positions
Cons
long hours, poor management, little appreciation for intelligence

lively atmoshphere to work
Fragrance Demonstrator since 1995 - casual (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, ABApril 18, 2013
sign in as a visitor to department store, hand out fragrance cards to customers promoting the product. I learn a lot about dealing with different types of people and thier personalities. Co-workers in the beauty department are a lively bunch to work with, keep things fun. There is no hard part in the job, it is quite the same every time. I enjoy selling and talking with people about the products I believe in and promote. Always trying to find different techniques to sell the product to keep things interesting.
Pros
great wages, free product at times
Cons
no cons that's why i have been doing this for 18 years:)

Stock and general maintenance (Former Employee) –  Montreal QCJanuary 11, 2013
Stocking shelves, taking inventory and occasionally providing help on the floor. I learned to listen to what customers want to give them the best experience possible as well as keep them wanting more.
Great management, dedicated employees who love what they do. The best part was the employees. Nothing seemed hard because everyone wanted to be their and made everything enjoyable.
Pros

Vous savez à quel point l’accueil et la qualité du service à la clientèle est important, surtout pour une organisation comme la vôtre, c’est en ce sens que je vous offre mes services.

Climat de travail agréable et mouvementé
Marchandiseuse et service à la clientèle (Former Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QCFebruary 9, 2016
Une journée typique de travaille à la vente de l'Oréal était de fournir les produits et les informations nécessaires aux clients, conseiller un type de produit et répondre aux besoins du clients. Trier la nouvelle marchandise reçue par numéro de code barre et remplir les étagères ou les bines. Une journée typique de l'inventaire de l'Oréal consiste a remplir les boites des produits de la vente, les scanner, les étiquetter (nom du produit, la quantité et le lot) et monter des palettes.
J'ai appris à travailler sous la pression due au nombre de clients.
Le management était organisé et agréable.
La majorité de mes collaborateurs étaient sympathique.
Je dirais que l'aspect le plus difficile était les clients non compréhensible et irrespectueux et le rush due au grand nombre de client à la fois.
L'aspect le plus agréable était la collaboration de tout les membres de l'équipe.
Pros
les collaborateurs
Cons
courtes pauses, aucune sécurité dans les vestiaires des employés

Commis plancher (Former Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QCDecember 2, 2015
Une journée de travail consiste à ce que tu rentre et on te dit dans quel département tu travaillera durant la journée. Ainsi tu aide les clients a trouver ce qu'il cherche et tu place la marchandise reçu.
