Team Member (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 20 December 2016
very tiring I learned how to coordinate with other members management is not that strict but it wasn't to the point that we can do what we want my co-workers always sets the mood up the hardest part is carrying heavy stuff the most enjoyable part of the job is working and meeting new people
Production Assistant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 December 2016
Definitely a Company I've been dreaming of since I got into the employment world. I love what this company stands for / believes in , which is the betterment of the earth all while making sure people feel , and look good doing it. It really is true about " happy people making happy Soap" . especially when Management is all about making sure their employees are taken care of .
Calgary - Senior key holder, manager in training (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 December 2016
I worked here in my last year of high school. The management believed in me and invested so much time and knowledge to help me grow as and employee. If i could work at a lush again, I definitely would. I left for University, and I miss lush everyday.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 November 2016
The co-workers are amazing people. The staff at lush are very friendly and accepting. A typical day at Lush would be chat-in with the floor manager then go out onto floor. By the end of the shift they would have a chat-out. During the chats they asked how your day was and what goals you have for your shift.
Great Place for Candidates who wish to grow with Company
Production Manager (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 28 November 2016
Been at LUSH for over 6.5 years and the company has given me so many opportunities to grow and flourish. They're willing to take a chance on young professionals and willing to develop them throughout the process. It's a fun environment with great people. Very hard to find those things in other work places. Would recommend anyone to work here.
Competitive Pay, Benefits, Bonus Pay, Fun Environment
Fast paced ethical company, fair trade, and sustainable
Sales Leader (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 22 November 2016
Lush is an amazing brand with an amazing core value system. I appreciate their ethics and that they are a campaigning company. Passion for the environment, human rights and animal welfare really helps you to appreciate the Lush vibe.
Labourer/Operator (Current Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 4 November 2016
I go to work by 7am get done by 2pm, I assist in the production of the soap and design them and all. It is very engaging as you need to spend time making the best out of the bath bombs. It is because it is hand freshly made you might need to be fast so as to finish it quickly and produce enough for the day
General Labourer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 November 2016
Worked in different departments and bubbles is the most fun and they promote team work. As for Ballistic department, the supervisor always finds something to complain about even when the productivity of the products is at 100%
Great place to work if the upper management like you
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 August 2016
Lush is a wonderful company and its values are incredible. If thr upper management stood by those same values if would be an amazing place to work. The structure is terrible and upper management are so tight that it borders on unprofessional. It was a really disappointing experience.
Great company with fantastic co workers and even better management
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 August 2016
i worked as a production assistant at lush for a month and the daily tasks were as follows. set up a table with one of the products that need to be un molded or packaged. we would work in groups of 3-5 people and spend the first hour or 2 working on that. then we would be assigned to help make a certain product in the afternoon which involves pouring the liquid state of soaps/oils into containers. the co workers i had were the best part of the job. very diverse but welcoming and friendly. I never felt out of place or had confusions about what i needed to do. management is unlike any other. you can talk to them on a person to person basis and were very flexible with hours, time off, etc.
diverse workplace, management, co workers, good hours
(Senior) Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 July 2016
Lush is a great place to be passionate. Passionate about the products, about causes, and passionate about drama.
The company itself is amazing. I still love and solely use their products for skincare. Canadian made and some of the most natural and eco-friendly products in my bathroom. The upper management is amazing, and down to earth. They frequently stop in and are on a first name basis with old-timers. The holiday bash is alway huge, and everyone from seasonals to executives eat, drink, and be merry! Its really wonderful!!!
Store management all tend to be pretty young, and somewhat unprofessional. My first manager was amazing, but she was rarely there when I was because of her other responsibilities as an eco-warrior/ trainer extraordinaire. This left the assistant manager and the floor leaders, and believe me, there were lots of games - the favourites got the best shifts, or the most shifts, and since there were way too many staff on the floor, there were never enough hours, even for full-timers. They would get into literal screaming matches in the backroom, loud enough for the customers to hear! They also bug you to constantly harass the customers until either they buy something or get out.
It was a great part-time job around the holidays, the discount was pretty sweet. And as long as you could stay outside the mgmt/floor lead drama and didn't require hours to make a living, the job was pretty amazing.
Passionate, well-trained, 50% discount, great staff parties!
Working for Lush was an experience. The training is extremely in depth and very comprehensive. My co-workers were the coolest people I've met and I'm still friends with some of them. It is a typical 'mall' job - high staff turnover, skipped breaks. But they do a really good job at making it seem worth it.
They do try to promote from within, but it often doesn't work out that way. That said, the sales training and soft skills learned are phenomenal and the discount on products is unreal, so all and all I recommend it.
