    - Demanding, hands-on environment with an emphasis on results. - An always busy environment with a lot going on at once


    - Office politics can get in the way of actual work - Large focus placed on rank within the organization. Management can often be cold to someone that just wants to talk.

    Advice to Management

    Being more open and upfront about expectations. Recognize people by work quality rather than rank.

    Average Interview


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


    I was interviewed on campus and then traveled to New York for an event they call "Taste of L'Oreal". Really cool recruiting event where they took less than half of the participants so it was super competitive. They took about two weeks to get back to me and they did not give me very much time to decide, which was annoying because I had to cancel 2 other interviews because they fell after my acceptance deadline.
