    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Avon Products in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    The Hiring Process was very straight forward.

    The recruiter called me and asked me if I was interested in moving to NY and gave me the Job Profile. Had a phone interview with a VP and the Hiring Manager and got invited for a 1:1 interview. The company paid for the airfare and had a car pick you up and drop you off from the airport. The 1:1 interview was very hectic with 6 people interviewing one after the another (including, SVP, VP, HR & Managers). Once that was done, I was asked to talk to another SVP and head of the group and was offered the position a few days later.

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Avon Products in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Through a recruiter. Two in-person sessions, both with multiple people. Everyone was great, questions were fair, and the experience was positive. Once complete, had to do a background/reference check, and also take a urine drug test (standard 5 panel). My advice would be to prepare in terms of why you want to join and what you want to get out of your experience. Avon is a company currently undergoing a lot of change, so you have to understand and embrace that as well.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Avon Products in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was over the phone with HR with general questions about my background and fit with the position. After a few weeks, I got a call to schedule an in-person interview. I had the interview with the hiring manager and 3 members of extended teams. I did not hear again for over a month. Then I was called for an in-person interview with a senior executive and another extended team member. Another month went by - I followed up and was informed that the feedback was positive. Two weeks or so later I received an offer and accepted.
    I had an extremely positive feeling when I spoke to every single person. The people were very nice and professional, and friendly at all times. I was a little irked at the long time it took -- it took over 3 months!! However, I was among the first candidates the company had interviewed, so to some extent the timing was understandable.
