        + Job moves happen frequently due to people leaving so there's always something new to get stuck into + Agile working means that you can work out of the office once in a while + Lots of NPD and new initiatives to keep you busy + Ambitious individuals


        - Long working hours. Most of sales do a 10 hour day as a minimum and this is only getting longer (I usually start at 8/8:30am and finish at 7pm), meaning I'm too tired most nights to socialise and switch off. Sales contracts are 35 hours per week... - Management are very slow to make decisions and often seem to be looking out for themselves by wanting a large amount of information. This can mean that we annoy the retailers and miss opportunities - More concerned with market share than profit - Low pay for the market (between £5k and £10k less compared to our competitors), no overtime or days in lieu for all the extra hours - Little collaborative approach to issues or problems. Those in sales are expected to come up with the answers individually and then present to management, but then of course they're slow to act - L'Oreal is a very 'lean' company = not enough people to make all the work = sales teams work long hours


        We appreciate the feedback you've left and take your comments very seriously. Thanks first for calling out the work flexibility and career opportunities as major pluses to the organization -- our HR teams try their best to give people different types of jobs within L'Oréal to expand each employee's horizons. We're a team of hard-workers, ambitious and creative - always finding solutions to sometimes next-to-impossible odds and it seems that you have lived this experience fully. It's true that we run lean -- to do so allows everyone to leave their mark and be the owner of their own business so to speak - but we know that this can make employees feel like they are being stretched too thin and work long hours. We're here to help and we recommend highly that you arrange a meeting with your HR team to discuss how we can help improve your work ambiance. In the mean time, we also need to take another look at our sales structures and determine how we can continue to help.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Sales Support Specialist

      I had a felony 20yrs ago and recently released. It would have nothing to do with these jobs. My history was stellar as industrial sales with engineering background, Now I want sales support positions which I have experience. I interview really well. I wait until an in person interview to bring this up so they have a better feel for me as a person. I am still navigating how and when to discuss this topic. I feel it needs to be brief and then pivot to how my skills can help the company.



      Do you have general tips on how to respond if in an interview I’m told that I’m overqualified for the job (skill wise and salary wise) ?


      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.
