    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Brief phone Interviews with recruiter and hiring manager. Third step was an on site interview with a presentation and technical questions. Still waiting to hear back from them. Seems like they are taking their own time interviewing several candidates.

    Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview consists of multiple steps. First, you submit your application online. Second, you will be contacted for a phone interview (it only lasts about 15 minutes) if they are interested in you. The interview revolves around behavioral questions and every person receives different questions for the most part. About a week later, you will hear back regarding whether or not you advance to the final round, 'A Taste of L'Oreal' in which the company will fly you out to NYC. In NYC, everything is kicked up about 50 notches. The first night includes networking with people who work at the company (they even brought the CEO to talk to us, which was a pretty amazing experience). The second day (and most intense day), consists of an all day case study. If you apply for CPD, there is a winning team, however, there isn't a winning team for the other divisions. On the final day, you go in for an interview (2 on 1). One person is from HR and the other is from your department. Most questions are focused on the case study you did the day before, with a couple of behavioral questions. This interview will last about 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview question: What is a recent purchase you made that you regret and why?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    L'Oreal really treats its potential interns like royalty. The effort that is put into the Taste of L'Oreal weekend event truly proves how much L'Oreal values their interns and how passionate and welcoming the L'Oreal team is. The Taste of L'Oreal event is a great learning experience even if an internship is not offered.

    Interview Questions

    • The 7 Hour Case study was intimidating. However, I did have a significant amount of fun during the process and really bonded with the other candidates.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    Applied online. Next step is prescreen phone interview with a recruiter. These are mostly behavioral. The next step is a Taste of L'Oreal which is a 2 day case competition. This is supposedly very intense and involved. I am not sure about this step because I didn't make it that far.
