In 2007, L'Oreal USA purchased several regional professional beauty distributors to begin building a single national distribution company - SalonCentric.  This company would not only be the official distributor for the L'Oreal Professional Products Division, it would also allow L'Oreal and a host of other top professional beauty brands to connect directly with the beauty professional in a way that is different from any other partnership in the industry.

Today, SalonCentric is comprised of:

  • Six distribution centers throughout the continental U.S.
  • One National Operating Center in St. Petersburg, FL that functions as our headquarters

  • More than 600 sales professionals who provide consulting services to large salons on products and innovations to grow their business
  • A 24/7 B2B eCommerce and information/edcuation website

In addition to selling L'Oreal branded products, we also sell a wide array of non-L'Oreal products that complement and diversity of portfolio to better meet our customers' needs.

    I have been working at SalonCentric full-time (More than 3 years)


    Great benefits, tons of internal growth, willing to adapt and change for needs of business, inclusive culture.


    Part time positions have high turnover/ minimal incentive leaving store channel consistently understaffed. Very stressful for store managers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay higher hour wages to your part timers. You'll recruit better talent.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SalonCentric (Miami, FL) in January 2016.


    Manger and district manager interviewed me.
    They have a paper full of basic questions.
    The manager asked me questions while the other stood there and listened.
    Questions have to do with your experience in the past and how you would deal with customers sales and shipments. They ask you about 10+ questions on the paper and explain what you'll need to do
