    Makeup Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics (San Jose, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is average. You get a phone call and then you get an appointment to meet with the counter manger. After that you meet with the cosmetics manager, and sometimes (depending on district) you have to meet with the account coordinator. I only had to meet with the counter manager, and the cosmetics manager. They asked a lot of questions about my customer service experience. The last part of the interview was having to use bobbi browns cosmetics and give a friend a makeup look. That part was a little nerve racking because even though I had experience previously, being judged based on your performance can be unnerving.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked you basic questions like "tell us about a situation when you went above and beyond with customer service?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was a comfortable and relaxed interview that sought for experience and personality fit. They wanted to know if I was able to support brand objectives in sales and vision. They seem to be a company who cares about their people and had a desire to know me the individual.

    Interview Questions

    • Usually, I find recalling an experience where you went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service a difficult one to answer. Having that in your arsenal is important. I know I always provide excellent customer service, head to toe with all bases covered. I don't really retain these experiences in memory. Great customer service is providing your guest with an experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was a positive experience, and I walked away satisfied with the compensation offered.

    Studio Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online I had to pass through the initial recruitment phase, pass through recruitment management and then complete a face to face interview with the area manager and a makeup trade skills test in store. Everyone very friendly and made me feel at ease. Pushed with interview questions as its a management role. The skills test was a natural bobbi brown look, including full face, blush, bronzer, corrector and concealer, shadow, eyeliner brows and mascara. I thought I had half an hour, turned out to be an hour so completing in 40 minutes made me early. This was definitely beneficial.
