worst job I've ever had
manager (Former Employee), vaSeptember 1, 2013
Pros: penny purchases
Cons: i think i said enough
First off, the expectation level is higher than what any human being could possibly possess. As a manager, undoubtedly more is expected of you then your employees, but to give an example of how i was personally treated as well as other managers of the same district, i worked 3 months solid by MYSELF 63 hours a week, open to close monday-saturday in – more... a very high volume store with absolutely NO HELP. I could not hire my own employees, they had to be hired by my district manager. The stress alone during that time made me lose a lot of weight, i was constantly sick, and didnt get a smidgen of sympathy, in fact, they told me work the 63 hours or not have a job. I love L'Oreal themselves but salon centric was the worst company they could have ever bought into. – less

Great place to work, but dont expect to go anywhere
Manager (Current Employee), Berkeley Heights, NJJune 15, 2013
L'oreal is a great place to work with great benefits, flexible working arrangements, a great culture, and exciting positions.

However, dont expect to be promoted unless you are either French or willing to stab your coworkers in the back to take more credit than you deserve...

A really bad company to work for
Manager (Former Employee), Franklin, NJJune 14, 2013
Pros: company store, nice name on your resume
Cons: long hours, bad managers, limited career growth
I would not recommend to anyone to join this company if you value weekends, evenings and nights. The manufacturing environment is highly stressful with very long hours. Management was incompetent and rude in my case. Turnover is ridiculously high with many departments having all new people fresh out of college.

Some other locations have decent managers – more... and better work-life balance, but it really is hit or miss.

In terms of career growth there is not a good succession planning in place. Movements across division and functions are limited and as far as I have seen it is much more likely to be fired than to be promoted.

Stay away. – less
