    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coty (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very casual interview. It was more of a conversation asking about the experiences listed on your resume. The hardest question to answer for me was "why coty?"The interviewer was extremely friendly and easy to talk to. They offered me the job at the interview. Overall, I had a very good experience with the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Coty in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very Young HR person who asked boring questions. Very nice offices, but reeked of perfume. If you have a senstive sense of smell don't apply here. She was my answers in her computer the entire time. She was the gatekeeper and I would have had to get past her.

    Interview

    You will most likely be interviewed by at least 3 or 4 people. They will ask you either the same or different questions. Some questions are general and some will be directly related to the job you are interviewing for, which is of no value in my opinion because if you appeal to all regardless of skills you will be hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult is when you are given a test unexpectedly throughout the interview process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation in my case.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coty (New York, NY).

    Interview

    For the Coordinator position I met both the hiring manager and the HR recruiter. Both interviews took about 30 minutes. Both were very conversational that involved few behavioral questions, but they both were assessing my personality and how well I'd fit in with the organization.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. This is always a broad but difficult question. I can't say what other interviews are like but based on the culture people aren't as interested in your skillset as much as how well you'd fit in within the organization.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coty.

    Interview

    Applied through a family friend. Interview lasted about an hour and met with the assistant manager and manager of global marketing. They asked about my passions and what I expected to get out the position. They were both very friendly and said I would hear back within a week or so. Several days later the HR rep emailed me and said that I received the position. Interview was average difficulty and they really enjoyed my enthusiasm and go getter attitude.

    Keep in mind that although it might be a long internship there is no guarantee that you will receive a job offer after. It is based on availability and after the 6 months they will hire a new intern. You are only considered for open positions when you are in your last couple of weeks. Plan ahead.
