I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Avon Products in May 2009.
Interview Details – The first interview was with HR on the phone. It took 2-3 weeks to get a call back for an in-person interview. The in-person was with HR and the hiring manager and consisted of typical questions such as "tell me about your background", "why are you looking to leave", "why Avon". It took another month or so to call me back for a second interview. The second interview was with the group VP and consisted of similar questions "tell me about your background", "why Avon". I also met with two cross-functional team members and the interviews were conversational. After another 2-3 weeks, I received an offer. Overall I think they look for skills set, background, and the right cultural fit.
Negotiation Details – I negotiated vacation time. The salary was non-negotiable, and during the HR in-person interview the HR made it seem as though my salary expectations were high.
