Reasons for Declining

I did not appreciate the disrespectful behavior of the recruiter. She seemed disinterested throughout the interview. She was 20 min late did not apologize for it. Was overall very unfriendly wanted to only focus on your weaknesses. Very unprofessional she changed my perspective on L'oreal in a negative way.

    I applied online and got a phone call within a week to plan an interview at the HQ. There, I met with HR to talk about my history of education. The questions were pretty standard, about good/bad characteristics, where do you see yourself in 5 years, what do you expect of this internship, why should we hire you?

    Marketing Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at L'Oréal in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Bien que j'ai été chassé pour un poste (rare pour une entreprise qui recrute normalement en interne.) J'ai dû passer cinq entretiens et des tests personnels.

    Le premier entretien était conventionnel, parlez-nous de vous, forces et faiblesses, pourquoi avez-vous changé de travail, etc...

    Le deuxième, le jeu s'est intensifié et ainsi de suite jusqu'au cinquième entretien.

    Avant d'en avoir terminé, j'avais justifié de connaissances approfondies d'analyses de comptes P&L, en défendant un plan marketing imaginaire avec des dépenses à +25% vs aujourd'hui, montré mes connaissances du marché dans des questions de type QCM. Un comité de discussion vraiment dur pour finir.

    Although I was headhuntet for a position (rare for a company that normaly hires from own ranks) I had to go through 5 interviews and to personally tests.

    First interview was a classic, tell us about you, strenghts and weaknesses, why did you change jobs...etc.
    Second one, the game was stepped up and so forth until fifth interview.
    By the time I was through, I had justified in depth knowledge of P&L accounts analysis, defending an imaginary marketing plan with a +25% spending vs today, shown my knowledge of the market in cross-check questions. Real tough panel discussion in the end.
