    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (more than 5 years)


    The culture is great once you find the right fit of people to work with. The CEO has infused some great advantages into the company since his arrival. I wish they would overhaul the HR department.


    HR can be a challenge to work with, unfortunately the culture is geared toward helping only upper level management. They can be sneaky and manipulate situations to suit the advantage of the executive or the company. HR doesn't care about the little guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the little guy supports you in everything you do. Stop treating the subordinates like they are dispensable, you are dispensable also.

    Procurement Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Estée Lauder Companies.

    Interview Details

    I was very excited to take a phone interview, when I quickly learned that I would never want to work there. The woman interviewing me was extremely rude and condescending. Later, my recruiter informed me that she has that reputation in the industry. I would not want to work for a company that chooses to have a rude employee conduct first interviews, would you? I am very glad they did not offer me the position.
