Politics is rampant at Lush Fresh Handmade cosmetics
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 March 2019
A typical day working for Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics is having a stretching exercise before starting a task which I love because it prevents a work related injury, What I have learned is the raw materials involved in the production are indeed organic and there was no synthetic chemicals. When I was a seasonal employee, I have observed that , whenever there is a job posting, the management would pretend that the job posting is open for everyone (internal applicants) when in fact the individual that they would hire are their close friends/buddy, so politics is involved in this case.Please observed these scheme if you happen to be working for Lush, I guarantee it is still rampant at Lush until now. I love the workplace culture because of the diversity of the total workforce. The hardest part of the job is, if the demand of the products are sluggish, everyone are affected because, the management would limit your work hours, The most enjoyable part are the camaraderie, picnics, and the Christmas parties. Overall, I will vote for one star for Lush Cosmetics because the way you treat internal applicants is unfair, even if the applicant is qualified and deserving, the management would still prefer their buddy system, to the CEO, please do look into this scheme. IMO, it could be because of race and color of the skin.
It's a great brand that does a lot of amazing things for the world so it can be very inspiring but the pay is low.

The culture has changed a lot in the past fews years and it is much more corporate and less employee and people focused. The brand itself is great and they offer a subsidy on transit and a good discount (the products are amazing) but it is very hard to move up unless you are in certain circles and the pay is very low and not a liveable wage.

The Pa's are amazing people and a very enjoyable atmosphere in that aspect but management will push serious matters under the rug to avoid their image being tarnished and management frequently talks about PA's behind their backs to other PA's and shares confidential information. Its quite unprofessional.
