    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products.

    Interview

    The process was very straight forward (took +- 4 weeks): 1 phone screening + 2-3 phone interviews + 5 in-person interview. Everyone was super friendly.
    At the end, it was a bit frustrating because they closed the process hiring no one.

    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.

    Application

    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

    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.
