    I have been working at Estée Lauder Companies full-time (More than 3 years)


    If you are a temp looking for an easy job with good pay, short hours, and limited responsibilities, this is the place to be! The company really tries to save money by hiring many temps so they don't have to pay for the benefits.

    Temps enjoy light workload and a set 9-5, mon-fri daily schedule while enjoying the benefits of having a prestigious brand/company in their resumé. Since by law, the company cannot have temps do the same job as permanent employees, the permanent employees have to do the heavy lifting.

    For permanent members, having calls and meetings at 8pm or later is pretty common. I've heard some people had to work until 2am! Can you imagine being worked to the bone like that? (S*ckers)

    To be fair, permanent members do enjoy higher pay and benefits but if you calculate the pay on hourly basis, I believe the pay comparison ends up quite similar.

    And temps get to enjoy the same benefits of having the prestigious name of Estée Lauder Companies, the global leader of prestige beauty, in their resumé.


    The day gets boring sometimes but not really an issue considering the benefits that come with it. I have been temping for 2+ years now and I have many recruiters approaching because of the prestigious brand name and job title in my resumé.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Although, I'd like to thank you for such a great time with the company. Keep up the generosity and the good work!
