    District Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    It was a pretty typical interview, nothing very stressful. I met with another District Manager who liked my personality and had told me there was a temporary position available. She gave me a brief "interview" and called her manager to set us up to meet and continue with a formal application and interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Avon Products.

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter on campus, was then given a phone interview a few weeks later. The recruiter did not ask me anything except one question and then proceeded to compliment me and my skill set. I felt very happy after the interview but never heard back from the company.

    I then followed up and was told that all candidates moving on would be reached out to. It has been a couple of months and I haven't heard back. Overall, the recruiter was kind and flexible, but I really wish that I was not given a false hope of moving onto the next stage.

    District Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avon Products (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    It was a very intense interview process. The one thing I would do differently is ask the candidate where they want to work, not vague questions on the type of people they like to deal with

    Senior Events Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an initial phone interview with HR rep on February 7. I was called by HR and told that they wanted to schedule a phone interview with the hiring manager. I waited several days and never heard back. I emailed them and was told the manager was traveling. I waited a week, no reply. I emailed them again, no response. I waited and ended up emailing HR several, none of which were replied to. Finally, a recruiter called me stating the hiring manager was too busy and they would be bringing on a new person and I should wait a bit and the interview would be scheduled. I waited 10 days and never heard back. I emailed HR again, they never replied. I then received a boilerplate email a few days later saying "thanks, but we are not moving forward with your application."

    Unenthical. Unprofessional.

    Interview

    I met with the DM at McDonalds to chat. See interview questions for more information. It was a quick visit, she may have given me some materials - it was so long ago that I barely remember. She wasn't pushy or anything - as in- you must sign up and do this - kind of thing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    First a phone screen to talk about salary and employment basics, such as whether or not I needed sponsorship. (On the salary question, they quoted a fairly low salary). Then, another person organized an onsite interview with a few people.

    The person who set up the interview did not mention that the office attire is dress pants and button-up shirts, so I was underdressed.
