    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Mary Kay.

    Interview Details

    At the beginning I did not answer the call from the hire manager.
    However, she called again and ask some questions about personal information. She ask about relocation, and which type of visa, full time or part time. How many hours I prefer...But after that, no more calls from that company.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Mary Kay.

    Interview Details

    There is no interview. If you think you're the one on the spot, laugh out loud, because more than likely the person trying to recruit you is trying to do just that - recruit, not hire. Think of it like if you had to have an interview before you could get a gym membership. Look pretty, do your makeup, and by the end of your "interview" you'll be signing a new consultant agreement.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Mary Kay in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Obtaining the interview was easier than normal since I was already working there as a contractor. But, since they hardly automatically convert contractors to full-time employees. I had to apply. They set up the bar so high and always find one bullet point in the job description to hold on to that. This Business Analyst position that I applied required some financial background, but they made it seem like you have to have a Financial degree with masters in technology.
    This was not the only position I applied for, but the process is the same. The interview process is more intended for you to get disappointed, making you feel you don't qualify (even though you have 90% of the requirements). And to tell you the truth there is people inside that you ask yourself how in the world they got hired. The Culture and benefits were great back in 2006, but they have been decaying over the years considerably. Hopefully it gets back like it was before.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Mary Kay in May 2007.

    Interview Details

    Basically, the interview was an opportunity for me to tell my recruiter what I wanted out of Mary Kay and then she offered me the opportunity to become a part of her team. She answered questions I had for the most part (it's usually the other way around, but she had already seen what she wanted to out of me I guess!) and then we talked about the first steps to get started!
