    Senior Internal Audit Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Got contacted by the HR manager via LinkedIn who after obtaining the CV sent an email that I have been short listed and the audit manager will contact me. The audit manager then contacted and confirmed the interview date. The interview was conducted by 3 different people(separately), the audit manager, the audit assistant manager and senior analyst. The audit manager's interview was the most detailed who asked me about my previous work experience in detail and explained everything required of from the role. At the end of first interview they told that if I am short listed I'l have to come for a second interview with the Executive Director and VP. HR contacted me the same day of first interview that I have been shortlisted and need to come for a second interview which was only taken by the ED.
    The ED did not ask any technical questions and only explained mainly about the company's environment and what to expect if I were to join the team however she did asked a lot of questions to know about my experience and if I was a good fit for the job

    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.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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.

    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.
