We therefore encourage mobility which helps our executives, both junior and senior talents, to rapidly acquire experience by being faced with a range of different cultures, business approaches and market situations.


In L’Oréal's people-centered culture, the diversity of the teams is one of the success factors. Fostering the values of all forms of multiculturalism and respect for differences, the group is enriched by employees from various horizons that enable it to gain a better understanding of the diversity of its consumers and markets. 

In this way, the group makes diversity an essential value that goes hand in hand with respect for the individual. Integrating the concept of diversity on every level and in every area is to recognize and accept differences but also to promote them to enhance performance. L’Oréal's ambition to win over one billion new consumers is therefore intrinsically linked to its desire to become one of the world leaders in the management of diversity.

    Fast paced and intense environment where even junior employees can advance far and quickly (versus traditional corporate/large companies) with hard work and talent.
    Compensation is generous and quite competitive versus what is typically offered in similar companies/positions.


    If you are looking for a slow-paced, laid-back working environment, this may not be the right fit for you.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Montreal, QC) in January-2017.


    Recu un courriel pour céduler un entrevue téléphonique le lendemain. Entrevue téléphonique à l'heure. Tel qu'expliqué par la personne des RH, ce premier appel était de type informel, dans le but de me connaitre et d'en apprendre plus sur le poste. Ensuite on m'a demandé de présenter mon cursus. on a parlé du poste en question. Suite à la description plus en détail du poste, ce n'était pas pour moi. Donc, nous avons mis fin à la discussion. Processus efficace, pas de perte de temps pour personne.
