Marketing Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at L'Oréal.

Interview Details

The interview consists of multiple steps. First, you submit your application online. Second, you will be contacted for a phone interview (it only lasts about 15 minutes) if they are interested in you. The interview revolves around behavioral questions and every person receives different questions for the most part. About a week later, you will hear back regarding whether or not you advance to the final round, 'A Taste of L'Oreal' in which the company will fly you out to NYC.

In NYC, everything is kicked up about 50 notches. The first night includes networking with people who work at the company (they even brought the CEO to talk to us, which was a pretty amazing experience). The second day (and most intense day), consists of an all day case study. If you apply for CPD, there is a winning team, however, there isn't a winning team for the other divisions.

On the final day, you go in for an interview (2 on 1). One person is from HR and the other is from your department. Most questions are focused on the case study you did the day before, with a couple of behavioral questions. This interview will last about 30 minutes.

    Interview Details

    L'Oreal really treats its potential interns like royalty. The effort that is put into the Taste of L'Oreal weekend event truly proves how much L'Oreal values their interns and how passionate and welcoming the L'Oreal team is. The Taste of L'Oreal event is a great learning experience even if an internship is not offered.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not appreciate the disrespectful behavior of the recruiter. She seemed disinterested throughout the interview. She was 20 min late did not apologize for it. Was overall very unfriendly wanted to only focus on your weaknesses. Very unprofessional she changed my perspective on L'oreal in a negative way.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at L'Oréal in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview. Each round included two group each of which consisted of five people. Each candidate was first asked to take two minutes to introduce themselves. Then we had a situational task in which we were asked to choose a brand that best presents Asia and design a marketing activity for this brand. The HR manager walked out of the room when we discussed, which in my view should have been a good time to watch how participants think and act in this situation. Each group had one representative presenting their ideas.
