    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Mary Kay in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was offered a free lipstick to hear the details of the Mary Kay Opportunity. The first time I heard it I didn't think it was for me! I had another chance to listen, and this time I wanted to hear more. The Sales Director shared more details, especially about the product buyback option if I gave it a try and decided it wasn't for me. I realized I had everything to gain and nothing to lose, so I signed my agreement!

    There are no interviews, you just show up at a meeting, ask them questions about what the position is like, and pay the fee for the "Starter" kit. From there the discussion goes to how much product you are planning on ordering and stocking, and they set up training appointments with you.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Mary Kay in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had a one on one interview with a sales director/recruiter. First she gave me a facial and then offered me the opportunity to become an independent beauty consultant. She was bubbly and very nice.

    I say that they should go for the opportunity to be an independent beauty consultant because you're your own boss and it helps to have that income during these poor economic times.
