Uneven workload

Two things regarding this company; one, there is an uneven work load among the team I happened to be working on and two, my team mainly spoke French. During team work sessions they preferred to speak in their native tongue.




Unrealistic work load expectation

Great start to a career in marketing

L'Oreal can be a very fast-paced and challenging environment at first, but it can reward you by meeting great people and being an efficient and effective marketer

was not very bad, but could be better ..

i think the company is loosing ground, because of fierce competition , and the product is too expensive, competitors can offer better value price products ..

Préparateur de commande

Bonjour ou bonsoir à tous! J’ai travaillé pour cette entreprise pendant un mois edemi. Les gens sont en général très cool , tres sympathique rien n’a dire de négatif à ce sujet . Par contre , le hic .. il y’a un gros manque de communication grave entre la supervision et les employés ( Je vises plus la direction au niveau de la communication mal gérer bien sûr ) pas rapport au rendement et etc . Les valeurs qu’ils nous montre au début de la formation à l’embauche ,ne correspond aucunement rendu sur le plancher. Vous avez beau vous donnez en étant présent à tous les jours , être à l’heure, vous faites quasiment jamais d’erreur ,toujours être présent et jamais manquer une seul journée … je vous garantis que même si vous avez toutes c’est bonne qualité en tant que employé ds cette entreprise (que normalement une entreprise devrait prendre en considération et en priorité surtout quand on a juste 1 mois edemi D’EXPÉRIENCE ds cette compagnie ) si vous êtes pas assez rapide au niveau de la production malgré le peu de temps d’expérience que vous avez pour vous améliorer à ce niveau là … croyez moi ils vont aucunement se gêner de vous congédier sans aucun avertissement. J’ai vraiment été choqué et déçu …. Mais dieu merci j’ai trouvé bcq mieux que l’oreal par la suite …..de ce que j’ai pu comprendre.. la rapidité est extrêmement plus important que le reste pour maintenir ce boulot. Et il y’a plein d’autres points négatif aussi que j’ai constaté mais bon ..ce n’est plus mon combat .Bref , en gros je vous déconseille cette compagnie si vous cherchez une stabilité - 


Les gens sont sympathiques


Bcq trop

Worst place ever. Terrible.

There is some nice people working there. HR people don’t really care about you. The management is unprofessional, uneducated, greedy, doesn't keep to deadlines and arrangements they set themselves. They blame the employees for their bad planning. Employees are unappreciated. The work environment is below any standards and unprofessional. Lots and lots of expectation, no appreciation, no professional communication. I would not recommend anyone to this company.No chance of growth. Supervisors are very rude, authoritative, and uncooperative. Managers never help with any problems they always direct to some other managers and which never resolves any issues. The environment is really stressful. Il y a des gens sympas qui y travaillent. Les RH ne se soucient pas vraiment de vous. La direction est peu professionnelle, inculte, cupide, ne respecte pas les délais et les arrangements qu'elle s'est fixés. Ils blâment les employés pour leur mauvaise planification. Les employés ne sont pas appréciés. L'environnement de travail est en dessous de toutes les normes et non professionnel. Beaucoup d'attentes, aucune appréciation, aucune communication professionnelle. Je ne recommanderais personne à cette entreprise. Aucune chance de croissance. Les superviseurs sont très impolis, autoritaires et peu coopératifs. Les managers n'aident jamais avec les problèmes qu'ils dirigent toujours vers d'autres managers et qui ne résolvent jamais aucun problème. L'environnement est vraiment stressant.


The salary


Toxic environment

Frag Vender

It was difficult to compete with sales but amazing people to work with, definitely have the passion to promote their job very well. Though i’m not sure i if the company is the greatest at protecting their associates.

performative activism for covid and diversity, toxic work environment.

Upper management was performative regarding covid protocols and diversity, only caring if it looked good for customers (ie: made money). If staff spoke up, they would be reprimanded. Salary for retail staff was not a living wage. Sales floor was a toxic environment.

Rien d'autres que le salaire

Environnement ennuyantInconsidération de l'employé par la haute direction.Travail de soir et de nuit obligatoire pour les premières années de services.Certains employés sont encore temporaires après plus de dix années de service.Il n'y a que le salaire d'attrayant après 3 ans à temps complet... Le salaire d'entré est le même que partout ailleursJe ne recommande pas

Very poor pay, they like to do experiences rather than pay staff decently

Very opinionated culture, your career path is determined upon getting hired. If they have a specific plan, you will only get that path. Many, many people leave. They work you to death. Bonuses are paid in Feb & the day after that there is a mass exit of staff




Pay, long hours

Great place to work for highly adaptative people

Greta culture on safety and quality. A lot of investments because great sales.Excellent management style from factory manager to most of supervisors, very positive.But you need to be a high adapter to perform in a very volatile and constantly changing environment.

Great experience to learn and acquire new skills!

Fun environment! Great Productivity brings you up the scale very quickly, opening new doors for more warehouse tasks on and off the machine. Great place to learn overall.

Management is terrible, unmanageable workload- no work life balance.

It feels good to say you work for L’Oréal but once you’re in there the culture is very old school and political. There is no one looking out for the million asks that get thrown on your plate.


Good pay, nice people, work from home.


Work life balance, too many tasks and quick turn around time.

Fun but hard work

Great place to work. Salary wasn’t great but had a great time working there. Many fun events. If you have a good manager, they will help you move to your next step in your career.

Fast paced with a lot of opportunities to learn and grow

L'Oreal is great company overall to start your career. It's very fast paced so things can get stressful. Work-life balance is not great but the company is really trying to work on that and introduce new initiatives/policies. It's a great school, you will learn a lot and meet some very talented people. However, it's a french company so you will have to learn french at some point if you are considering a long term career there....


No.1 cosmetics company in the world, Lots of learning and exposure, People are nice and supportive, Health insurance and wellness benefits, Day care for kids (only at Montreal office unfortunately)


Work-life balance, Salaries can be more competitive, French language feels like a must have to grow within the company

Production Engineer

The production is very divided between management and operators, in an unefective and divisive way. Lots of people were cooperative between the two groups, but there was lots of tension and a few could openly sabotage the efforts of another (both management and operators had episodes of signicficant uncooperativeness at times). Must say that some divisions are better than others on that aspect.


Culture within mangement is great, fun group work and do things out of the office with. HR suprisingly good.


Cover your a** culture, lack of leadership and cooperation.
