Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Avon Products in July 2013.

Interview Details – Communicated via email, met at a restaurant for the interview, nice/pleasant manager who maintained a friendly conversational atmosphere rather than too formal, asked a lot of "what would you do" questions, requires working knowledge of Microsoft Word products, said there was another applicant after me but would call me that night (and did).

Interview Question – What would you do if someone was trying to contact me but you knew they were just being "needy" and did not have to speak to me directly (and my schedule was already booked).   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. The hourly rate was predetermined and there was no way to ask for anything else.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Avon Products in October 2009.

Interview Details – I initially found out about the program from a contact within the company. After she passed my resume along I was asked to come in for an interview. After the interview the HR representative asked me to formally apply on the Avon Career website. About 3 months later I received a phone call/ interview from my potential internship boss. A week after that call i received the formal Internship offer.

Global Finance Manager Interview

Global Finance Manager
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Avon Products in October 2009.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter via Monster.com. I went through one screening call before being called in to interview with 4 Senior Manager's and the hiring manager. These were supposed to be one-on-ones but instead we all went to lunch together and had a conversation. I had only met the hiring manager one on one. About two weeks later I was given an offer that I negotiated slightly.

Interview Question – Not structured. I was in a group setting at lunch. I was asked about what I knew about Avon and spoke of my experience of what I could bring to the position.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not very flexible. Avon is in tough financial shape but they make a decent offer if you are a few years out of school.
