I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at L'Oréal.
Interview Details – L'Oreal hand picked those they wish to interview within the MBA program. They did not open for applications. First, the HR Director gave us a presentation about the company, showing numbers, and describing a lot about the culture. Second, there was a fit interview with her, the director. The interview was very straightforward, with questions about our background and expectations. A few curve balls were thrown, but nothing super difficult. That was pretty much the process, fit interviews all the way with different people within the company. What really threw me off was their lack of professionalism, many of the interviewers were very snob/arrogant (even more then McKinsey!), but in a "Devil wears Prada" kind of way. But the worse part was that If they decide you are rejected, they simply stops replying to your emails. A few candidates received a rejection email, and others nothing. They just never heard from them again. I expected more from a world class company.

- Describe yourself and your background.
- Describe your favourite project or experience during your previous internship.
- Why do you want to work in Marketing?
- Why do you want to work for L'Oreal? What is your interest in the cosmetics industry?

Be prepared for detailed questions about any of the brands. Answer Question
