Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in April 2014.

Interview

Interview process seems to be ongoing... Applied online (March 2014) and get called for phone interview ~3 weeks later (April 2014) Had an initial phone interview with HR followed by a phone interview with an Executive Director. I got invited to come in for an onsite interview 2 weeks later. I met with 2 Brand Managers, a Global Director, and the HR Manager. I did not receive any feedback so I reached out (end of April) and was told the position just went on hold but I am still under consideration and I should check back in a month. So I followed up (end of May 2014) and got a response within 5 minutes that the position is still on hold and movement is expected in July and that I should follow up again. So I followed up end of June and never got a response...no phone call/no email reply/no update to my status online...

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    They were hiring for multiple Associate Brand Manager positions so I met with representatives from three departments (color, skin care and fragrance) . The interviews were all fairly similar. Each started with a "give me a bit of your background" question. After explaining my education, professional experience and work style they asked further questions regarding my background. There was a heavy emphasis on corporate structure and each interviewer made it a point to explain where this position would fall and who is above, below and on the same level. Each asked why I was interested in beauty and why specifically Avon.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I had separate 1:1 interviews with 3 different Brand Managers, as well as a 1:1 interview with an HR rep. The brand management interviews were informal, friendly and conversational, with a few behavioral questions thrown in. The HR interview was the complete opposite. The HR rep was challenging and confrontational, and asked a few mini case questions, all over lunch in a crowded and loud setting. I would recommend being prepared for just about anything when you go in.
