    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at L'Oréal USA in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a phone call interview. After the phone interview, I received an email inviting me to the recruitment weekend in New York. They paid for flight, hotel, everything. Involved a recruiting weekend with both undergrads and grads, separated by CPD, PPD, and Luxe. There was a cocktail reception the first night, a day long case study the next, and the interview on the last day. The events were fun and social, but competitive.

    Internship Interview

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with two different women who both seemed very nice. I thought the interview went pretty well and waited about a week to send a follow up email. They never answered my email and never called to let me know that I didn't get the job. Very unprofessional. I would expect better from such a successful company.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at L'Oréal USA in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    My initial communications with L'Oreal was when they visited my school for the career fair. I was then invited to an interview the day after the fair, which was 30 minutes, was mostly behavioral questions, and had two interviewers. The interview was comfortable and the questions are not difficult. They ask questions to see how you will fit in with the company. Approximately 5 weeks later I was contacted by HR to set up a second round phone interview, which was basically an overview of the job and going over details on my resume. Shortly after the second interview I was offered a summer internship. Overall, my internship was great! They gave me a lot of responsibility and valued my opinion.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were very standard and behavioral. The question that stands out to me was when they asked me to list three things about myself.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate considering it was an internship and the opportunity was great enough.
