Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bare Escentuals.

Interview

Just casual questions getting to know me, asking about my experience in retail along with my experience involving not only make up but specifically their products. Then they informed me about the training process that would be involved. After an in-person interview, I was called in for an "audition" where I was to show my skills with applying make-up to another person using the products and brushes provided.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bare Escentuals (Allentown, PA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    My initial interview was a basic one on one interview with the store manager. She asked basic get to know you interview questions. After the interview with the first manager, she asked me to speak with the second one to review and go over the questions again. They loved my bubbly energetic attitude and told me they would be in contact for the second interview, aka the "audition".

    The audition is a 30-45 min make under/role play. You have 30-45 minutes to complete a face of makeup with whatever scenario your model gives you. Afterwards, the manager critiques your performance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bare Escentuals.

    Interview

    Applied online a few days after the job was listed. Got a call back less then a week later asking to come in for an interview the following day at 1. Was slightly nervous because I didn't have previous retail experience, but I am pretty skilled with makeup and put that on my application. Got to the interview 15 minutes early, had to wait because the girl interviewing me was with a client. Wore all black, dressed professional. We talked outside the boutique on some couches in the mall. She was somewhat informal, asked me some basic questions, stopped to point out a dog on a leash walking through the mall. She was clearly reading them off a list of questions her keyholder probably told her to use to interview people. She mostly went over the companies policies and such. Lasted about 30 minutes. She scheduled another interview on the spot, which was the make under. I brought my sister. I wasn't too nervous, and the manager helped me along the way. We were chatting like friends the whole time. The next day I got a call saying that her boss wanted me to fill out some questions about salary and that they would "love to have me". I got the email with the offer right after the email with the questions. Whole process took about a week, and we had to reschedule my second interview due to snow.

    Interview

    So I don't really know if I got the job it's nerve racking! I applied for the position around Christmas.,got a phone call interview and then a meet up interview a couple days later. Had my make up under interview last week, so that was three interviews in total..I was nervous for the make up under because they were there just watching me apply everything! Assist manager and Key holder said I did great but let me tell you! Don't put your hopes up :( it's not up to them! I don't know if it's like this at every store but apparently you get an email from DM if you get the offer or not.,waited one week and nothing.! But good luck to everyone!

    Interview

    Very friendly. Asked a bunch of typical interview questions. You have to come in twice. Once for the initial interview, then again to do the managers makeup look. You have to have quite a bit of experience, and having product knowledge is a must. Know their stuff! It also helps if you have a lot of experience with makeup, even if it's not professional.
