Frequently Asked Questions


The recruitement process:


It has two stages:

The HR interview: it takes the form of a telephone / Skype interview. Always exploratory, this is a very open discussion with a recruiter to get to know you better and identify the business, division, brand on which it is relevant to position yourself.

Interview with managers: You will then pass an interview directly with the manager in order to discuss the missions entrusted.



What is the level of responsibility for an apprentice at L’Oréal?


Being an apprentice at L’Oréal means being integrated into a team like a full member, with a real scope and responsibilities. Your manager is there to support and develop you throughout your work-study contract. But of course, the first player in your sandwich course is you! Be proactive, take initiatives, be innovative and have fun!



How is the integration of apprentices going?


Without revealing too much, there are several integration events with the aim of networking and strengthening the Group vision!

All of our work-study students also have access to a dedicated digital platform. Its role is to facilitate integration within the Group through training, a glossary of the L’Oréalien vocabulary, a trombinoscope of all of the Group's interns and work-study students present at the same time as you, and much more.



Can we be hired at the end of our apprenticeship?


Yes, in Operations our trainees and apprentices represent our main recruiting pool. On average each year, 70% of our junior jobs are filled by former interns or alternates. However, nothing has been taken for granted, the 12-month work-study period is for you and for the Group an opportunity to assess your future projection.



I don’t know anything about cosmetics; do I have my place?


Less than a third of apprentices at L’Oréal have already had experience in the world of beauty or fashion. Having a personal sensitivity to cosmetics is an asset, but we attach even more importance to other essential qualities which are the spirit of enterprise, the capacity to innovate, to question, to propose ideas in rupture or even the want to have a real impact on the market.
