Very Difficult Interview

Accounting Intern Interview

Accounting Intern
Berkeley Heights, NJ

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at L'Oréal in February 2014.

Interview Details – Phone interview - Why do want to work for L'oreal? - it is a private sector so hard to say if they expect you to get CPA. I didn't know how to answer questions regarding public or private sector; if you tell them you almost have CPA then they may not like it because you may apply to "big four" after completing summer internship. Hard to answer why not public accounting, and why in particular you want to go private accounting with L'oreal..! especially if you have good grades, mine is 3.94 - Rutgers.

Interview Question – many behavioral questions and private - public sector why... Loreal   View Answer

Very Difficult Interview

Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern

Interviewed at L'Oréal

Interview Details – Applied through university and 2 weeks later set up a brief phone screen with HR. From there, I was invited to come to the Taste of L'oreal weekend. The weekend included a full day where you work with a team on a "problem" as observers take notes. There was also a 2-on-1 interview where they as questions similar to the HR phone screen as well as more in-depth questions. Difficult interview because of the nerve-wrecking process. Taste of L'oreal is weekend-long interview, the interviewers were really nice, but it got pretty stressful at times.

Interview Question – During 2-on-1, they asked questions about how you would go about marketing a certain product to a specific population.   Answer Question

Creative Services Coordinator Interview

Creative Services Coordinator
New York, NY

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at L'Oréal.

Interview Details – Interviewed on a Friday evening, hired by Monday morning. Spoke directly to the Vice President of Creative Services, DMI aka the creative director, and she wanted to know my employment history. I was working directly under her and thought she was cool and very talented, so I was excited. But when the job begun I realized why the previous girl had quit. Nok was extremely disorganized and provided little training. It was difficult.

Negotiation Details – My agency handled the specifics. 24/7 Talent.
