I genuinely loved working for this company and I would definitely consider returning in the future.

One of the only few companies where I felt happy and was appreciated by other members of staff. The work culture is also great and the vast majority of people seem happy to be there and happy to help.


The workload was fairly high but that stopped the day getting boring.


Only issue is a lack of desire to maintain staff.
Pros
Great cafe
Cons
Pay could be better

I was employed through Buzz Recruitment for seasonal work.
I worked full time on a 6 - 2 shift, mainly.

I checked product orders were correct, processed and packaged them.

All incomplete or inaccurate orders were returned to the picking section.

Once packaged and gift wrapped in some cases, the package was conveyed to the Dispatch area.

At the start and finish of the shift you logged in on the main computer.

During peak production times logged both in and out within your selected packing zone, when you had a break in shift.
Pros
Good pay rate. Overtime opportunities. good shift pattern with NO Weekend work
Cons
Simply, that it was seasonal rather than ongoing

Good place to work, it’s the people that make the place, not the job. It’s fine to work there until they use your sick notes against you and lay you off.

Terrible company to work for as they do not respect employees and encourage bullying on the counters
When you speak to the area managers they do nothing as they are Iacking experience.

They have fabourites.

This was my favourite job I have ever had. The company are amazing with amazing benefits but progression is not really a focus. I was promoted in my last three months to temporary counter manager, however this was never a focus from the beginning.

I love working for the brand. They look after you, have good hourly rate, good allocation and friendly staff.

The management are very supportive and the ongoing training is excellent.


You really do feel valued and they reward you if you over perform.

Anyone wanting a long retail beauty career should work for Estee Lauder.

Overall I enjoyed working for the Estee Lauder Group.
I across many brands within the Group including Skincare, Cosmetics, and fragrance. They were all very different experiences but overall quite pleasant and enjoyable. I would work with Estee Lauder again and recommend friends too.
