Marketing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moscow (Russia)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avon Products (Moscow (Russia)) in September 2015.

Interview

First i had to wait for quite a while without any knowledge of for how long i have to wait. The HR manager during the interview was more interested in why i have left previous workplace rather than what i have learnt. I also had to pass maths test without any knowledge how it is going to be accessed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Through a recruiter. Two in-person sessions, both with multiple people. Everyone was great, questions were fair, and the experience was positive. Once complete, had to do a background/reference check, and also take a urine drug test (standard 5 panel). My advice would be to prepare in terms of why you want to join and what you want to get out of your experience. Avon is a company currently undergoing a lot of change, so you have to understand and embrace that as well.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    None needed. Offer was very good, and they are a generous, respectful company in terms of negotiating the final details.

    Interview

    pretty straightforward interviewing process but did take a long time - possibly be/c many people were traveling? But also went through a recruiter who kept me apprised of what was going on.

    • Why are you interested in changing the category you work in to join us?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Fairly straightforward; again, I used a recruiter who helped the process along.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in January 2007.

    Interview

    Avon interviews usually happen with HR, followed by category managers and the category VP. It is very much a personality test as much as it is behavioral and a skills assessment. The Avon culture is very consensus driven, and the ability to forge relationships and get buy-in is critical. While eagerness is valued - personalities that are too strong may be a put off in this "nice" culture.
