    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Most of the HR questions were general, I would suggest always using a land line. I used a cell phone and my bad reception cost me the job. I was asked questions such as why did I choose my major/minor, how I could connect my past work experience (the jobs were relatively unrelated), etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at L'Oréal (Edison, NJ) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Phone interview was good. The interviewer was courteous and provided information about the company and the position. Interview was set up and first got called in by HR Director who did a general interview to see if I would fit in with the organization. Following that I met the hiring manager who then gave me the nitty gritty on the job I was interviewing for and what the expecations were. This was followed by some questions regarding my experience and my capabilities.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Had initially interviewed for this position when it was not a full time but a freelance position at the company. Was not ready to make that leap at the time. When it was reposted as a full time option I called my HR contact and said I was interested. Was called in to meet with direct supervisor and then her boss. Very positive and fun interview process. Really enjoyed everyone. People were VERY upfront about the culture and its challenges. But for the right person it is a stellar opportunity

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    Interview was over the phone and quite relaxed, she asked lots of questions about competencies, as well as one or two about motivation for joining L'Oreal, as well as some facts about it.

    Got an offer to an assessment centre, but ended up being analysed for a different department than what I applied for without knowing, so I didn't get the job as I wasn't knowledgeable enough...
