    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Estée Lauder Companies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The benefits are out of this world if you get the opportunity to work in a free standing estee owned store. Some customers are so great, free products, pay for your college, great insurance and PTO. Plus, they have great training for management that translates to all other places. I learned so much from this company and have carried the knowledge of how to bring the best out of myself and others to my new career.

    Cons

    There will always be people working above you who are shady and unfortunately the shady people don't get fired as they should. Some customers can be really really rude, and the work is so easy that it can make the brain mush. Also, holiday can be long hours and no time off. No room for growth unless you are shady.
