I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at L'Oréal USA.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview with Operations recruiter on a wednesday. Conversation was very pleasant and I had done all my research and was very well-prepared. Recruiter informed I'd be contacted by the end of the week or early next regarding a position she thought i'd be a great fit - but was never called back, despite three follow up emails throughout the month that followed. Very unprofessional.

Interview Question – Regarding my immigration status and commitment to reside in the United States for an extensive period of time.   Answer Question
