    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Avon Products in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    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...

    Toxicologist II Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Avon Products.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was typical for a large company. Onsite interview was rolling along until Lunch. Maybe I expected too much, but we went to the cafeteria, where the hiring manager had me pay for my own lunch. Based on experience from other companies, this seemed a little odd. There was a bad vibe the rest of the day/

    Processing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morton Grove, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Avon Products in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hiring is a free for all. A lot of people get hired because they know someone who works there, so management kind of has an expectation of who they are going to hire. The place has a lot of rules that they advertise to the public when listing open positions, but breaks them whenever they deem it "for the good of the business." The applications are all online now, and you can have someone who works there refer you if you know someone there. They do follow to a tee, their background check, and urine test policy though. They even ask former employers your sexual preference.

    The interviewing is pretty straght forward. What do you have to offer us kind of business. They ask pretty standard questions regarding experience, references, etc. They also let you know right off the bat what they expect regarding physical condition, productivity, attendance, late shift, and other stuff, to make sure your up to snuff, and willing to bend for the needs of the company.
