    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Essilor of America in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Recruiting contacted me for an interview. I completed their basic skills test but never heard back from the company's inside recruiter even with period followups via phone and email.
    ADVICE - Avoid Essilor's recruiting team and try to communicate only with the hiring manager.

    Corporate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Essilor of America in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The one on one lasted for 2 hours. The junior recruiter, was not looking professional and was shabbily clothed and was just "doing her job". She was just interrogating me and was like a Q & A session and I felt I was not sitting there for a job interview but for a media interview. After that the very personable HR manager came in and was very cordial and welcoming and opened a very interesting interview session. She was very knowledgeable and fit the role of a HR manager.
    Upon entry, the receptionist did not say hello but simply asked me to pen down my registeration.
    I sent them a thank you letter, for which I did not get a response, but got a decline letter after a month. Very bad practice. Thanks
