    I worked at Helen of Troy full-time for more than a year


    Benefits are a plus. That's about it.


    Depends what department you work for, there is no OT at any time, PTO is difficult to obtain and you feel like you are back in High School. HR needs to be more professional, they will never protect the employee even if it's said it's an open door policy. If an employee raises an opinion or their voice, rest assure that employee will be fired or pressured so much they quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to stop favoring managers, VP's or anyone with a higher power. Stop hiring your friends HR!

    Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Helen of Troy.

    Interview Details

    Interview was really easy since is very difficult to find skilled personnel in El Paso area, and even more difficult for managerial positions since for someone coming from big cities is quite a change.
    Interviewed by future manager and HR person the first time, and then by CFO and other managers, but again, it was only polite chat since they can be too exigent and they "massage" you for the coming low ball offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The 'Not Negotiable" low ball offer when it comes to salary, unfortunately, i needed to work to pay the bills and i accepted. And that is the only reason they still have employees.   View Answer
