    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at L'Oréal (Hammersmith, England (UK)).

    Interview

    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!

    J'ai postulé sur le site à une offre quir egroupait plusieurs stages en Ressources Humaines.
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Que répondez-vous aux personnes qui affirment que les ressources humaines ne servent à rien?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at L'Oréal in November 2014.

    Interview

    They reached me through my university CV book, as they are highly interested in undergraduate students. As the office was not in my hometown, they asked whether skyping would work for me. I had one single interview with the manager of the HR department and the manager of Marketing department.

    Interview Questions

    • Abstract questions, they are interested in people with high interpersonal and soft skills, rather than analytical or mathematical reasoning skills. "What does beauty mean?" is a common question.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't want to focus on a single department. Few flexibility.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at L'Oréal (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Initial contact about assessment interview, was by email after completing the application form online. Only one assessment centre in London, seemed informal. Candidates were asked to have a presentation to hand. There wasn't a one on one interview for this initial stage as this was the first round, however candidates were expected to show knowledge of the company and the cosmetic industry.
