    Interview Questions

    • Usually, I find recalling an experience where you went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service a difficult one to answer. Having that in your arsenal is important. I know I always provide excellent customer service, head to toe with all bases covered. I don't really retain these experiences in memory. Great customer service is providing your guest with an experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was a positive experience, and I walked away satisfied with the compensation offered.

    Makeup Artist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics (London, England (UK)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for a role online. Within 3 days I got a call and had a 20 minute phone interview. I was then invited for a face-to-face interview. The store manager I met was very nice and easy to speak to. I was asked to do a test make-up session in a different store with another staff member at a different date. They changed the dates 3 times. On the test make-up I was expected to do a 30 minute day make-up as per the service they provide. I was given their make-up sheet and it was as if I was supposed to know what it all was. Not only that but I was expected to find products within the make-up station which obviously I was not familiar with. Some of the products were empty and even though I was told not to bring my own tools, brushes given to me were dirty! I had to be cleaning them as I went along and the manager interviewing me was pushing me for time even though the area and products were not suitable for a test make-up especially if I was suppose to do it in the same amount of time a current staff member does it. To add insult to injury, the person overlooking this test had extremely untidy make-up on to the point where one could see foundation finger marks alongside their jawline and neck. It then took about a month to hear back from them. I knew that the answer was negative as everything with the test make-up was off. The phone interview and face-to-face went great but I feel that the test make-up failed due to unreasonable expectations and extremely unprofessional approach.

    Interview Questions

    • During the phone interview, I was asked about the company's history.   Answer Question
