Supply Chain and Process Improvement Intern Interview

Supply Chain and Process Improvement Intern
Oxford, NC

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Revlon in October 2013.

Interview Details – 2 phone interviews with the HR- behavioral questions and going through the resume!!
1 final on-site interview with a panel of 5 people (HR,2 plant managers,1 director, 1 Supply Chain manager)- asked quite a bit on resume in detail, asked questions on how to reduce waste in a particular filling machine (basically testing whether you are fit for that position)

Interview Question – What will be your approach to reduce a waste in the auto-filling machine?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, pay was $25/hr which is huge for a Supply chain intern position, plus they give transportation costs too!!

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Revlon in April 2012.

Interview Details – Within about 2.5 weeks I came into the office about 3 times, each time meeting with 2-3 people. The last visit was grueling, including a case study that I needed to analyze and present to a panel. They never actually told me I didn't get the job, they just never called back which was very frustrating.

Interview Question – Business case study and presentation to a panel of judges   View Answer

Marketing Interview

Marketing
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Revlon in January 2012.

Interview Details – Overall a lengthy process. Had my first interview with HR and was asked to come back the next week to interview with a member of the marketing staff. After two weeks of waiting, I was asked to come back to meet with another member of the marketing staff then prepare a marketing assessment to present back to four members of HR and Marketing. After all of the interviews and a strenuous presentation, I had to follow up with them to be told that I would not be offered the position. I (politely) asked for feedback since I had spent over 6 hours in the offices interviewing, so I could at least know what area I could improve on, but never received a response. Although everyone I met with was very nice, I'm afraid of what the work environment would be like with the lack of response and accountability during just the interview process. I am now happy that I accepted a position at another company who was much more quick and responsive.

Interview Question – Assessment, multiple one on one interviews   Answer Question

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Revlon in April 2011.

Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me for a phone interview, at the end she stated that she would schedule me for an in person interview for the following week. 2 weeks later she finally did just that. I came in an interviewed with 2 people. They were nice and polite, they definitely stressed teh fact that working overtime was the norm at the company. At the end recruiter spoke with me and told me that a decision would be made quickly as far as teh next round. 3 weeks later no response. I guess I didnt get it.

Associate Product Manager Interview

Associate Product Manager
New York, NY

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Revlon in July 2009.

Interview Details – Three step process that seems to focus heavily on cultural fit, as well as their preferred skill set (CPG brand management).
1. Initial 1:1 HR interview with situational questions (i.e. give an example of when...)
2. Multiple 1:1 management interviews with various level executives (I met with 3, but probably subject to availability). Company generated questions are followed by staff. A second HR 1:1 was also included.
3. A case study presentation to be presented in front of the prior interviews. Followed by a question and answer session.
Overall a lengthy process that requires preparation and patience. The staff was surprisingly candid about the difficult work environment and 'sink or swim' atmosphere. Also upfront about heavy turnover/burnout rates. Very smart and engaging people who seemed upbeat about positive changes internally.

Interview Question – Do you feel that beauty products are a commodity?   Answer Question
