I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.

Marketing Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at L'Oréal in January 2008.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Please make a thorough walk through on the board of how you would deal with a major drop in turnover - but you have to stay committed to delivering the same buttom line. Please be explicit in your decisions on cutting in the adv. budget. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – fair and hard. Be prepared - into even the smallest detail. Be sure to justify why you ask for something.
