    Customer Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    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 Details

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coty.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    I was not able to negotiate.

    Phone interview with hiring manager, followed by second interviews with others three months later. Interviews were not formal.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coty in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position on their website and received an email about a week later to set up an in-person email. I met with two people on the team who gave me a brief history of the company, the department, and the role. They asked me about my resume and what skills I had to offer that can be beneficial to their company. They also explained various tasks a typical intern would be asked to do and if I felt comfortable with it. They also asked why I was interested in beauty and if I followed any beauty bloggers. Mainly they are looking for someone who is comfortable with the role and passionate about beauty.

    Global Marketing Intern (6 Months) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
