    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Essilor of America.

    Interview Details

    This was a typical interview process with typical questions. The interviewer did however seem to be "shooting from the hip" with the interview questions. This gave the interview a natural flow, but may have led to a subjective choice in for the final candidate. One would expect a set list of questions to be asked, but that didn't seem to be the case

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Essilor of America in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    HR interview was straight forward.
    Panel interview with 2 hiring managers, one is French. He wanted to speak French to me since my resume mentioned I'm a French linguist as well. It was a bit strange since the other interviewer did not speak French. I had gear back the discussion to why I was there and get back to business.

    I was asked to do an MS Excel test online.

    Inventory Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Carrollton, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Carrollton, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Essilor of America in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at the Essilor site and was contacted by a recruiter. She described the role and asked a few preliminary questions. She arranged for an in-person interview where I met with the hiring manager and his superior. It was obvious from the start that I was not qualified for the role. The hiring manager asked me a series of technical questions that likely confirmed to him that I wasn't the person he was looking for. His manager seemed nice at first, but made it clear that the last person hired 'couldn't hack it' in the department. She also made it clear that I'd be subjected to a barrage of accounting tests to 'prove I know what is on my resume'. Even if they had called me to move further in the process, I would have declined after that.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Essilor of America in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Recruiting contacted me for an interview. I completed their basic skills test but never heard back from the company's inside recruiter even with period followups via phone and email.
    ADVICE - Avoid Essilor's recruiting team and try to communicate only with the hiring manager.
