    Pure Brand Ambassador Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Purity Cosmetics (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I had two interviews with this company and both were pretty bad. The first interview was for a Pure Brand Ambassador. I was sent a email which happened to be group inviting us all for a interview. So, whoever was sent this email and replied was able to see the conversations. That should of been a red flag #1. When trying to get to the interview I could not find the location. It turns out whoever sent me the information gave us all the wrong address! How do you not know where you work?! The only reason I found the building is because it had a sign outside. I got to the door and it was locked. I was pretty confused. The front desk had no one and it looked like a empty building. About 10 mins later someone came and opened up the door. I was brought into a group interview with 4 other candidates. The girls who interviewed us dressed like twins and were pretty young. The interview was not professional. They set out a couple products and asked us to sell it to them. I was contacted for a 2nd interview but the pay was lower then what I was already making.

    I applied online – interviewed at Purity Cosmetics.

    Interview

    I applied for this position and was contacted by the HR representative who requested my phone interview availability. After I responded with availability for the next two days, a response came on the afternoon of the second day that said the HR representative would call on the third day at 10:30. The HR representative never called and has not made any attempt of explain why she never called for the phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I found the choice to not call for the scheduled phone interview be very unexpected and very unprofessional. However, this behavior is in line with other reviews about the behavior of this company.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied online and was called in by the DM. I did a very short interview and was practically offered the job on the spot which was surprising considering it typically takes a long process. The entire process consisted of typical questions ... What was your previous experience? Can you sell me this product? And within a few questions she asks if I could start on a specific date.

    Interview

    I applied online and was brought in for an in-person interview, no phone screen. When I arrived, I was greeted by dogs and an employee who brought me to a room. The interviewers then came in and asked me several questions. They talked about whether it would be a good decision to hire me while I was still in the room - making comments and judgements.

    Personal Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Purity Cosmetics (San Jose, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I found the job posting on Craiglist. The posting sounded nice and all my correspondance via email were friendly. However, the in-person interview was the most unprofessional and disorganized interview I have ever experienced. When I walked into the office, dogs jumped up on me. You would think that they keep the dogs leashed or in a room when visitors come. The dogs were all over the place. There was one that angrily growled at me, and an employee had rushed out to apologize and say that the dog was a rescue and to not pet him. The interview was very casual. First, a young lady came out to interview me. My interview with her was nice. Then I had an interview with the managers. This was the unprofessional part. It was invasive and I felt like they thought I was unintelligent. It makes me wonder if they talked to all the personal assistant candidates like that.
