KPI driven company that doesn’t treat all staff equally
I worked for Loreal for many years as a permanent employee. I had a work related injury and my position was terminated after they withdrew my duties, but I didn’t get termination letter until over 8 months later. They don’t look after staff to prevent injuries. Many people get injured but don’t speak up because they don’t want to lose their job.
Heaps of shoulder injuries, carpal tunnel etc. Loreal were not rotating their staff to minimise risk of injury, as this wasted valuable working time and affected KPIs. They go on about ethics but have double standards. Manager said monkeys can do our job. Low morale amongst workers but some nice people I worked with who I miss. I was called Loreal Liability and inconvenience by the union deligate. Anyone there who was on workcover gets talked about and everyone finds out everything. Backstabbing environment. Nothing gets kept confidential. It’s all about KPIs and money now. Some staff stood around doing hardly anything whilst others got taken into the office and picked on about their pick rates.
They talked about cross training staff but refused to put me in other areas that didn’t aggravate my injury. They looked after their favourite staff though.
Money hungry company doesn’t deserve good, honest, hard working people...because I’m worth it.
I still hear their products are tested on animals too.
Cheap products, good pay for easy work
Dangerous work practices, management not nice
