Difficult Interview

Interview

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 Questions

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

    I applied an internship position in marketing department trough their website. In one week they called me and we made a short telephone interview about my academic background and expectations. Afterwards I got an invitation to group interview. I made the group interview with 13 people. Firstly we introduced ourselves then we are asked to express ourselves by doing a collage using past L'Oreal advertisements (naturally glue and paper). In the second part we carried out an easy business case. After a week I got the phone and I am selected to second interview. It was with the product manager and we talked about the products.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    Following the initial application, I received a telephone interview booked around three weeks in advance. It seemed that the person who interviewed me was fairly junior. Interview took place in French and English, and concerned competency questions and impressions of the company. I was also asked about what I could bring to the company before being given the chance to ask my own questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What branch of L'Oreal would you like to work for? When I named a few possible options, I was asked in French about the differences between their target markets.   Answer Question
