    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Mary Kay in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went for two interviews. The first was a group interview and the second one was upper management. I did better on answering the questions I was prepared for- so I recommend practicing an answer for every question you can think of. I also recommend that you bring extra copies of your resume for people that were pulled into the interview last minute that did not have a chance to look at your resume. Plus- try to know something about the company before you go for the interview- it matters.

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Mary Kay in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I reported to HR. The lady at the desk made sure they had all my paperwork in order. After that, I waited about 10 minutes for them to let the interviewers know I was here and schedule a room. I was then escorted to a conference room on one of the upper floors.

    I meet with the position's supervisor, his boss, and one of the team members. The interview was straight forward and routine. Questions covered my previous work, technical skills, and workflow.

    One of the interviewers threw in some trendy questions, jokingly. "If you were a pie, what kind of pie would you be? How many squirrels are there in the lot next to the building?"

    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.
