About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I enjoyed my spring insight at L'Oreal a lot. The week was very well planned out and I learned a great deal about the company and the processes involved within it.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I felt very valued during my time at L'Oreal, I was able to ask many questions and was given tasks to complete independently.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

I received a lot of guidance and support during the insight. I had the opportunity to shadow interns and see their daily responsibilities and activities.


4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

During the insight we received powerpoint, prezi and excel training, which I believe will be extremely helpful for my degree. I also had the chance to see what some of the marketing interns do although I was actually in a different function and I believe this will be helpful for my marketing courses.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

The insight was very well structured. There were daily trainings, which brought together all the spring interns and each day was different, yet followed a similar routine.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

The general atmosphere was amazing! I highly enjoyed L'Oreal's corporate culture. Everyone was extremely friendly and outgoing.


7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

The company highly invested into our personal training and development. We had trainings every day and I learned a great deal.


8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

I received the opportunity to speak to many interns that were doing a placement year at L'Oreal and even shadowed a few of them. This really helped me understand what a full time role at L'Oreal may look like.


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

The insight was extremely helpful in understanding L'Oreal's company culture. It is a very buzzing, friendly and outgoing culture, which is very fast-paced and full of responsibility!


10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

The experience definitely confirmed to me that I want to be in the FMCG and beauty industry, hopefully at L'Oreal one day!


Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

Underground travel costs and lunch was reimbursed.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

There are many opportunities for networking and meeting other employees. Just be very open and ask if you could speak to someone from a different function and your manager will set you up to have a coffee with them!


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

We had a great social event the first evening which included an escape room and drinks at a pub afterwards!


14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

I learned that L'Oreal has a few great sports teams that go on a yearly trip together and there is also an intern committee that organises social events.


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

I would definitely recommend this insight to a friend that is interested in the beauty industry and likes to work at a fast-pace!
