    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was invited to meet with HR and the hiring manager right away without the initial, phone-screening interview. The team left a sour impression, asking questions like where are you from and how old are you that are typically not meant to be asked. Overall, the interview structure was typical and took 1 hour. I was highly disappointed with the HR's professionalism (or lack of such) as upon sending a follow-up note, I haven't heard back from them at all. It's one thing to simply politely reject a candidate but another to just ignore altogether after meeting one-on-one. Highly unprofessional. Glad I wouldn't have to work for a company with such practices.

    Interview

    I interviewed after pulling potential customers over to the counter for their skin care routine. I pulled six customers over and the counter staff sat everyone down and did their skin care regimen. After pulling customers for them, the regional account manager and I sat down in the middle of a mall and had a brief conversation.

    Counter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clarins (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I had 3 in person interviews and two phone interviews spanning about two weeks, They let me know many times that this was a high profile position I was applying for and wouldn't even consider talking too me until they got in contact with at least one reference. The macy's portion was extremely easy, it was the Clarin's side that took the longest. I had one on one with the Regional, and two phone interviews with the account executive and then one with the VP who was on vacation. They all asked me the exact same questions about what my managing style was and previous success's. It all seemed great, but a very lengthy stressful process.

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Clarins.

    Interview

    The first phase was a telephone interview (approx. 30min) followed by an in person interview with the HR manager and 2 department employees. The interview lasted about an hour; standard questions on experience and why I was interested in working for the company. Less than a week later I was called in to do a test and to have a second interview. After the test, I was told that the manager I was to meet was suddenly called into a meeting and unavailable; I would need to return a third time and that I would be hearing from them shortly. HR did not follow up what so ever, I never heard back from them. Very unprofessional in my opinion!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    After I accepted email offer from HR who asked when could I start - a new area manager called to change my start date by 3 months (aug) refused holidays and asked about my childcare as she was concerned I couldn't work until 8pm went on to roughly outline rota and shifts which no one had explained over the 4 interviews. At 2nd interview I had explained 6pm close at childcare providers and husbands shifts. I asked area manager for exact hours in writing. Ive heard nothing since. Spent around £40 in travel expenses to interviews for a temp p/t job which I was offered then it fizzled out. Confused? Not what I expected from Clarins.
