I loved working here and stayed for 17 years, it offered me opportunities that have formed lasting and positive memories. I travelled. Learned new skills and made lifetime friends. The personal development learning programme is excellent and it’s a young, cool company .
Can be all consuming if you let it
The management and training were incredible, the employee discount and allocation schemes were also amazing. The base pay was low however targets were fairly reasonable and the commission scheme was rewarding if you hit the targets.
Employee discount, allocation, amazing sense of community, management
Absolutely disappointed with everything apart from the free products. Terrible management, no balance between work and personal life, long shifts, terrible pay. Find another job! The managers don’t care about you even if you do your best.
I worked for this company by proman agency for 1 week and It had been a bad experience. I didn't get properly training but just a colleague explained to me what to do but if I didn't understand something then get rude. Was also very annoying haering colleagues speaking in their language while working I felt it very rude.
Waste of time
IV worked with loreal altogether for over ten years. They are a dynamic company with many sectors and opportunities if you can travel. As a manager I do struggle with my minimum wage. I have a child and a mortgage and I do find I work hard and see little to play with on payday. This is a job for you if you love interacting with people, enjoy a sales environment and are driven.
Commission, great discounts, good support
Wages, a lot of initiative based work, I feel they ask a lot for what they pay.
Working for the brand was great lovey people and training was also professional and always up to date However what you get paid is not enough especially for a counter manager you get paid pennies. Considering the fact you have to give your whole life away to retails Christmas holidays bank holidays weekends etc it’s not worth the hassle !

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
I had an excellent working relationship with my Area /Regional managers, I found them very supportive. I always felt that if I required any further information/support they are always there for me , helping me in a positive way.
If your are hardworking, conscientious and have good work ethic its a great company to work for . I worked for Loreal 17 and a half years and made many friends and had a good social interaction.There are benefits with a pensions scheme and there was profit share when I worked for them i'm sure that may still be in place now, there is also plenty of incentive and opportunity for people wanting to get on with ambition.
many benefits and incentives
The bullying that took place at NYX Cosmetics was unbelievable. I have a lot of experience in Makeup retail, and found much of the area management level was secretly trying to cover up their mistakes by blaming it on staff members below them. They corner you by not providing you with ANY stock, any HYGEINE or any kind of equipment you need to do your job, then complain about sales and customer reports. The area manager the person to fix all of these issues for you. But because they are ignoring these issues and management above them figured it out, they then began a game of trying to cover their lazy management skills by deleting emails and HR meetings but were never truly held responsible for what they had done. They also did not correctly report sickness reports. I later found out my 'break down from stress' which was keenly communicated and backed up with psychological assessments from working was reported as the Flu. This was not just with me. This happened with multiple managers across the company. This place is a disgrace, and the entire company needs a shake up. avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
Given sales targets to achieve which were realistic and management take in consideration the decline in retail. My first area manager was awful, she'd never visit or reply to messages or calls, however the management I had after were all brilliant. L'Oréal take into consideration mental health and the well-being of their staff. Generous allocation twice a year and use of the L'Oreal staff shop.
