How are career development opportunities at Helen of Troy?

Pros

Good culture, ok benefits, nice people, flexible, very good PTO, relaxed environment. Lots of training ( if you ask for it)

Cons

You can stay at the same pay grade for a very long time, not much opportunities for growth or promotions, the company has very little rotation so leadership positions do not open up often. If you don't pressure for a raise or promotion your position in the company will not change.

Advice to Management

Not sure if this is a company thing or a department issue but my advise is to treat your top performers better, some times they don't see a benefit from going above or beyond their duties.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Helen of Troy?

Pros

Open and Honest management with a relatively flat structure meaning that communication and information flows freely and quickly. Exceptional communication (via phone and web) during the CV-19 pandemic, always being available for help and support when needed. The interview process was handled relatively quickly, meeting with key stakeholders who were very honest about the role and challenges that would be faced. Plenty of opportunity to take on new projects and be involved in different aspects of the company. Everyone who I work with collaboratively has been very welcoming and engaging though video calls, really taking the time to introduce me to the company, brands and ways of working.

Cons

There is no physical office in the UK, and so if you are looking to join the team it is worth noting that you need be a self motivated and comfortable working alone in a home office. It really isn't too bad with the world of video calls but it is just worth mentioning as remote working isn't for everyone.

Advice to Management

Keep up the strong team feel.

How are promotions handled at Helen of Troy?

Pros

When I joined Helen of Troy, I was the first person to specialize in OXO brand quality management in China. The company hoped that I could start to build a professional quality management team. In the following work, I started to recruit quality inspectors and train them one by one. After nearly two years of efforts, we had built and improved a professional and efficient QC team. Later, I began to hire and train quality engineers, and formed a team of professional quality engineers. Time has changed, and although my immediate leadership has changed several times, I am here with our key team members! We still love our company and the OXO team. We are trying our best to protect her and protect the OXO brand like our own eyes. Over the years, I have witnessed the growth of the company, the perfection and fullness of the OXO brand, as well as a number of dedicated colleagues. I have developed good working relationships with my colleagues in Shenzhen, New York and Japan. We work together, maintain smooth communication, actively participate in quality activities together, and solve many quality problems together, so as to gradually improve the product quality of OXO brand and improve the quality system of all OXO suppliers. People ask me, "Why have you stayed with a company for so long?" . I told him, this is 15 years of feelings! I love this company, the OXO team and the OXO brand. I will always try my best to make her better... All the best!

Cons

There are few promotion opportunities for junior staffs

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Helen of Troy?

Pros

Tremendous support of employees; everything from internal growth to leadership and all kinds of training, to benefits and concerns for wellbeing / balance in the work life world.

Cons

When part of a large company, change can take longer than one would want - implementation of systems across brands etc. Also, there is more "paperwork" and protocol w/ in a large company but it all circles back for the benefit of the employee.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on communication and accountability across the board. Very important.

Kudos to our Mississippi team for its volunteer work with Heartland Hands Food Pantry this summer. Since June, Helen of Troy associates from Olive Branch, Southaven, and Horn Lake locations have spent every Tuesday and Thursday pitching in at Heartland Hands. The team packs and loads boxes of food for those in need throughout DeSoto County, MS. In July, the team accumulated over 200 volunteer hours. 💪 It looks like they've enjoyed every minute of their time at Heartland Hands.😀 Great job team!
