    Finance Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process was great. HR was very down to earth as was the hiring manager. I found avon associates to be nice and professional. The work life balance is not just a sell during the interview because it does exist as soon as you start with the company and lasts throughout the time you spend there. The offer came quickly and was not dragged out indefinitely like other companies. Overall a positive experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Avon Products.

    Interview Details

    Was a mess. I flew in for the day to interview, HR left me waiting over 30 minutes before starting the interview. Sent me to my next interview who asked me why I was late! HR hadn't even bothered to tell them I was late on their accord. I was hired, came for my first day, and my hiring manager didn't even come to pick me up from the lobby. There was a global meeting and after orientation all the other hires got picked up at like noon. The reception kept calling my boss with no answer. My two up boss happened to walk by about an hour later and was like hey! What are you doing out here! Come with me!

    There was no negotiation. They gave offer, you accept or decline. Pay and benefits are good, but keep in mind you'll be working an AVERAGE of 60-70 hours per week plus home office time. When you calculate that down to hourly it doesn't sound so great.
