For L’Oréal, beauty and diversity are intimately related. Its global presence, the variety of its brands and the wealth of its teams enable L’Oréal to integrate the concept of diversity at all levels to carry out its mission: beauty for all.


"A diversified workforce in every function and on all levels strengthens our creativity and our understanding of consumers and it enables us to develop and market products that are relevant."

Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO 


In L’Oréal's people-centered culture, the diversity of the teams is one of the success factors. Fostering the values of all forms of multiculturalism and respect for differences, the group is enriched by employees from various horizons that enable it to gain a better understanding of the diversity of its consumers and markets.

In this way, the group makes diversity an essential value that goes hand in hand with respect for the individual. Integrating the concept of diversity on every level and in every area is to recognize and accept differences but also to promote them to enhance performance. L’Oréal's ambition to win over one billion new consumers is therefore intrinsically linked to its desire to become the world leader in the management of diversities.

    Former Employee - Formulation Chemist in Clark, NJ
    Former Employee - Formulation Chemist in Clark, NJ

    I worked at L'Oréal USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best part is, you get to see the product you've worked on get launched into the market pretty much within 1~1.5 years from the point you start working on it. THAT is an amazing gratification you get when working here, something not many of my friends in other industries can say (i.e. - semiconductor takes many years, pharma takes MANY years).

    Another great part is, I have seem plenty of coworker friends who had a chance to work 1~3 years in other R&D locations around the world. For L'Oreal, I have seem personal friends whom have worked at Clichy (France), Shanghai (China), and Kawasaki (Japan), but I believe there may be other locations as well. How cool is that? ^^

    Cons

    Downside is, the work "can" get very routine. But I think that will depend on your ability and desire to learn "formulation" so you can get creative as you build up your skills in cosmetic chemistry and science.

    And as you go up in ranks, it seems (from my brief observation) that you have to do a lot of good negotiation and discussion with marketing, whom typically will decide what products will be made. This can be tough, because marketing folks are very tough. =)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is probably the same issue anywhere you go, but sometimes the ideas that come from internal members get "passed or ignored" where as ideas from outside seem to get more attention.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Brunswick Terrace, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South Brunswick Terrace, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at L'Oréal USA.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a 10-15 minute presentation on previous achievements, academic and/or work related. Afterward, there was a panel of about 4 members who asked behavioral questions. The questions were not too hard, mainly asking about my previous work experience. One of the panel members were very interested in one of my previous internships and asked very specific details based on the results of my project there. So be sure to know your resume and remember key facts from the past.
