    The first group assessment was about creativity, the second was a role play where candidates took part as various division of the company to decide upon an annual budget. The second assessment mostly focuses on team playing and time management.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at L'Oréal in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone call within a week to plan an interview at the HQ. There, I met with HR to talk about my history of education. The questions were pretty standard, about good/bad characteristics, where do you see yourself in 5 years, what do you expect of this internship, why should we hire you?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at L'Oréal in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The application process in quite long. I submitted my resume in early May and I got an interview for the end of June. Almost 2 months. After that expect at least 3 interviews. One screening interview with HR, one with the HR Manager, another one with a Marketing Manager and one last one with HR to negotiate the job offer.

    For Marketing they will ask you to improve or criticize a product, make a commercial on the spot and analyze a magazine ad. Be creative!

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at L'Oréal in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    First interview was with the HR personnel to get to know a bit about your background, experiences, and qualifications.

    Second Interview was with a Product Manager and also Director to determine your relative fit for the position. Director wants to know about your experiences and what you can bring to the company. Also, they are looking for highly creative individuals to join their team. Product Manager looks at your abilities to think on the spot. They give you graphs and tables to look at and evaluate your on the spot analytical abilities.

    The people are L'Oreal are pretty nice, but it seems that the team here in Hong Kong is relatively small and there are few opportunities for promotion to senior level management.

    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at L'Oréal in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Bien que j'ai été chassé pour un poste (rare pour une entreprise qui recrute normalement en interne.) J'ai dû passer cinq entretiens et des tests personnels.

    Le premier entretien était conventionnel, parlez-nous de vous, forces et faiblesses, pourquoi avez-vous changé de travail, etc...

    Le deuxième, le jeu s'est intensifié et ainsi de suite jusqu'au cinquième entretien.

    Avant d'en avoir terminé, j'avais justifié de connaissances approfondies d'analyses de comptes P&L, en défendant un plan marketing imaginaire avec des dépenses à +25% vs aujourd'hui, montré mes connaissances du marché dans des questions de type QCM. Un comité de discussion vraiment dur pour finir.

    Although I was headhuntet for a position (rare for a company that normaly hires from own ranks) I had to go through 5 interviews and to personally tests.

    First interview was a classic, tell us about you, strenghts and weaknesses, why did you change jobs...etc.
    Second one, the game was stepped up and so forth until fifth interview.
    By the time I was through, I had justified in depth knowledge of P&L accounts analysis, defending an imaginary marketing plan with a +25% spending vs today, shown my knowledge of the market in cross-check questions. Real tough panel discussion in the end.
