Indeed featured review

Not the greatest pay/commission in the beauty industry. However they do have huge budgets for trainings. Great perks like free products, etc. Management can be toxic

Lovely company with few bad apples

Overall the company is great. Most of the management are reasonable and kind. Typically lack of hours but pay was also not bad. Nice canteen for food and cute celebrations for any holidays. However, in the company there are certain people who are rude and plain disrespectful (with no reason) which definitely ruins the family feel of it.


Very clean, nice breaks and shift options


rude people

Retail wages are low for such a big company

Management is a bit blazé, high targets so they don’t have to give you a bonus. The wages are very low, even when bonus is paid. Really good employee discounts.


Employee discount


Low wages only suitable for teenagers who live at home

Fantastic company but reshuffle needed

An amazing company however management needs a reshuffle within shop floors. Benefits within the company are great and I would recommend the company to anyone within the industry but be cautious as the turn over is high.

Amazing family feel and support

Management is great. The brand really makes you feel like you are a part of the family and have a great community and culture. There is also good support and training. You learn a lot about makeup and the products they sell. I worked on a rota basis but i was able to have a lot of input and took childcare into consideration. The best makeup brand to work for. You also get lot's of freebies and discounts! The company really looked after staff during covid. A typical day is trying to bring customers in and tracking sales through the day, keeping the store cleaning and tallying up sales at the end. The sales targets can be daunting at first. It is more about sales than beauty. You do not need to be a beauty expert but just need to learn how to use the products. Helps to have a full face of the brands products on too.

It was a fun place to work for, but management was shocking

Everyone is in each other’s pockets, if you’re not friends with the high up managers you have no chance on progressing. One of the worst jobs I have ever had, horrible people.


Free lunch when in head office

Shifts and retail

Good discount and benefits, lots of free products. However the training isn’t great, and management aren’t very supportive. The hours can be long as it is a retail environment.




High targets

Overall the working personnel at L’Oréal.

Overall the working personnel at L’Oréal were great except for one or two workers that were let’s say, not team players. The management, I have never met such a facist group of a management team and they’re getting away with it. Coming from a manager role myself of over 100 personnel, I feel for the workers but, I’m glad it was only a temporary role for myself.


Early starts (06:00hrs), average wage


Facist regime, unpredictable hours, suck-ups were favouritised over hard workers on overtime.

Boring , repetitive and terrible management

My summary says it all, terrible management, repetitive, long tiring days. No such this as a work life balance and the job was not outlined properly in its description. Overall stressful and for less than £10 not worth it

Loved my time with Loreal

I really loved my time with Loreal and only left due to losing hours as a result of a restructure making my salary too low.Management were the best, I’ve never loved a job more than what I did working for Loreal.I’m hoping one day I can come back in a suitable role

Fun job, low paid

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

Not the best

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.


Free products


Everything else

Vindictive Management who were inexperienced

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.

Awful, arrogant management

Management talk down to you like you're stupid. Polish cliques and constant foreign speak to make English feel unwelcome. No permanent contracts (some working up to 10 years on temp contracts then let go suddenly).

A challenging environment but the company look after you

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.
