      Toxic Work Culture

      Pros

      We get 7 summer Fridays off. However, during this pandemic everyone was forced to use their Fridays plus 5 vacation days every Friday after to save the company money. If employees didn’t have any vacation days left over, they had to take a pay cut for that Friday. There are some great people in the labs who are very talented and are genuinely good people.

      Cons

      I think this company is a complete mess. In the past two years, we have gone through 3 CEO changes. The company lacks stability and direction. Compensation is ridiculously below industry standards and there is very little opportunity for growth. Additionally there is a lack of communication between teams and upper management which often result in a buildup of projects, redoing work and wasting a lot of time. In addition, upper management is out of touch with their teams- a lot of people in management positions lack people skills, leadership skills and lack transparency. Often times many teams are working overtime due to the bungled communications and lack of infrastructure between groups. Teams are understaffed and are suffocating with the amount of work coming through. Additionally, many positions are treated as a revolving door- new people coming in and leaving or fired which only contribute to the disarray among teams. Overall, Coty is a very toxic workplace.

      Don't work here

      Jan 24, 2021 - General Production Worker in Sanford, NC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There isn't really anything good about this job.

      Cons

      The turn over rate is the highest I have ever seen. Most of the people I started with had all quit by the time I left. They hire too many people to try and compensate, but in the end it contributes to the turn over. When I took the job it was a 40 hour a week + OT position. They regularly cut hours due to not enough work and too many employees. Many weeks most of us only worked 1-3 shifts. Some days many of us went to work just to be sent home when they didn't have a spot for us. They were not transparent with new hires about not being guaranteed 40 hours. The work culture and environment is incredibly toxic. The long term employees and management treat the new employees terribly. They behave in a hostile and disrespectful manner. Everyone working there seems miserable to be there. The training is the worst I have ever received and practically non existent. If you need to use the bathroom or drink some water during your shift don't expect to have an opportunity. You get stuck on the line and there usually isn't anyone to step in and cover your spot. Around the Holliday's they hire at a better pay rate but aren't completely truthfully about the pay. Basically they will alter everyone's pay rate at anytime. My advice is don't waste your time working here. There are better opportunities elsewhere.
