    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hammersmith, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hammersmith, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview Details

    Applied on the company's website. Was then asked to complete a numerical test - not too difficult but it is crucial to remain focused while completing it.
    I was then invited to a phone interview (only given half a day to prepare). The HR interviewee was very friendly and made the experience comfortable. Be sure to prepare examples for all competencies to make it easier for you to answer!
    Was then invited to assessment day, which I am now preparing for!

    Un recruteur m'a appellée 3 semaines après - ce qui est plutôt long - mais ensuite tout est allé très vite. Un 1er entretien de 10 minutes pour vérifier mes motivations et mon niveau d'angais (parler de ses hobbies en anglais au téléphone). Ensuite entretien en face to face sur skype avec un autre recruteur (j'étais à l'étranger) d'une durée d'une heure, où j'ai du spécifier les 2 -3 missions parmi les 10 contenues sur l"offre, que je préférais et pourquoi celles-là. Enfin, j'ai eu un dernier entretien avec la manager au téléphone de nouveau sur mes missions.

    Negotiation Details
    Très simplement, dans la transparence, j'avais une autre offre en parallèle donc j'ai du accélérer le process ce que le recruteur a fait sans problème. Il ne m'a même pas donné de délai de réponse une fois la proposition faite, je pouvais prendre mon temps.

    The interview was pretty fast. First, I was interviewed by the HR associate, who asked things about the usual interview stuff - background, why choose L'Oreal, ability to work with others. The next person who interviewed me was the hiring manager, so more specific questions like experience related to the field of the project.
