    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    I was firstly contacted with the recruiter and scheduled a phone interview. No technical questions. Just talk about my experience briefly and she asked me how long can I work in US. Then I was scheduled an phone interview with a manager. The second phone interview took about 25 mins. No math or logical questions. Just asked very general resume questions and behavior questions.

    The interview overall was a pretty good process. The human resources department got back to you pretty quickly. Interview was by phone and the phone interview lasted about 20 minutes. Brief to the point. Come prepared and you'll do well.

    Graphic Web Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at L'Oréal (Commerce, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I actually interviewed at NYX Cosmetics (under the L'Oreal brand umbrella). I was called in for an hour interview through 24 Seven Talent. The position was a freelance to staff position with estimated transition of 1- 5 months depending on the fit. I met with the hiring manager within a week of applying and then was asked to meet with the AVP about 3/4 into the interview. The interview went really smooth -- I hit it off with both interviewers. I was offered the position a few hours after my interview and was asked to start a little over a week after, so they would have time to order my computer.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    Brief phone Interviews with recruiter and hiring manager. Third step was an on site interview with a presentation and technical questions. Still waiting to hear back from them. Seems like they are taking their own time interviewing several candidates.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview consists of multiple steps. First, you submit your application online. Second, you will be contacted for a phone interview (it only lasts about 15 minutes) if they are interested in you. The interview revolves around behavioral questions and every person receives different questions for the most part. About a week later, you will hear back regarding whether or not you advance to the final round, 'A Taste of L'Oreal' in which the company will fly you out to NYC.

    In NYC, everything is kicked up about 50 notches. The first night includes networking with people who work at the company (they even brought the CEO to talk to us, which was a pretty amazing experience). The second day (and most intense day), consists of an all day case study. If you apply for CPD, there is a winning team, however, there isn't a winning team for the other divisions.

    On the final day, you go in for an interview (2 on 1). One person is from HR and the other is from your department. Most questions are focused on the case study you did the day before, with a couple of behavioral questions. This interview will last about 30 minutes.
