    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products in March 2010.

    Interview

    You meet a diverse set of business partners at the country, regional and global level. They are assessing for culture fit . It is a very relationship driven organization. Some of the interviewers are very confrontational but that is really about seeing how u maintain grace under fire. Be succinct factual . Pay attention to the bios of the people who u will talk with .The recruiter who has placed people there is a valuable resource. Use networking websites to see who u may know at the company.
    Remember if they are talking to you then they don't think who they have inside is the right fir so it is critical that u get a sense of what they need in a candidate that they don't think they have now internally. Again the recruiter should be helpful here. Finally it can only help if u know someone at the organization. CPG is a small world so chances are u do.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    very long, through many channels and layers... You talk to a lot of people, they screen every single aspect of your life.
    First you get a phone interview, next a second phone interview with different person. If you pass, you have an interview with this person, but this time at they offices, next stage you speak with the team of creative and than with the head of creative. If they select you, there's a big screening of your background, drug testing, checking with each employer and every single detail of your resume is checked. so don't lye in your interview at all.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (Portland, OR) in January 2014.

    Interview

    There were about 5 interviews. one was an all day group interview. There were several different peer interviews on different days, a one on one with the divisional manager, and a group interview. At the end of the group interview, we were all asked if we had to hire one of the candidates, which other candidate would you hire and why. Very good strategy. There were several openings and this gave us a chance to eliminate the brown noser who was a very mean person when the interviewers were not with us (at lunch)
