Clinique Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Clinique.

Interview

Was seeking employment at my campus bookstore Clinique counter. Had to repeatedly follow up with the General Manager to get an interview and apply. The position is never posted online so you have to follow with him for any part of the hiring process. Finally scheduled a time and was hired on the spot after interview with Current Clinique supervisor and himself.

    Clinique Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Clinique (San Rafael, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was actually applying for an Impulse beauty position, but the counter manager for Clinique scouted me. She said as log as I applied for cosmetics, I could be at any counter that was hiring as well. The interview was like any other interview, and it went well. I was pretty much hired. But then, I did the phone interview (talent plus). Then, I went in to meet the Clinique coordinator for our store. I was hired. It was all positive.

    Clinique Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Clinique (Winston-Salem, NC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Basically I put in an app on belk. I say maybe 3 weeks later a counter manager calls me in for a interview. Then 3 days later I meet with the business manager and I waited about an hour to meet the cosmetics manager for belk and I get the job. I will say the process is shorter if you go on cliniques web page and complete the talent plus assessment before the interview with the counter manager which I did!

    Clinique Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redding, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clinique (Redding, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was over the phone through a company called, Talent Plus. You can only interview once and if you fail you can't ever apply for a Clinique position. The questions were very random and the person on the other line did not respond to my answers or questions. It is all about you and it could take 20-45 mins. I was able to find out if I got hired or not that same week.

    Clinique Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Leeds, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Clinique (Leeds, England (UK)).

    Interview

    A brief conversation with the account manager, then a second in depth conversation with the area manager over coffee. I then had to met up with the department manager for a store approval - pretty standard stuff for cosmetics. The area manager wanted to know my sales background, very sales focused, the account manager wanted to know how I interacted with customers and the store stressed the unsociable hours they were open at Christmas to make sure I would work them.

    Clinique Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clinique (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, answered quite in depth questions, probably took about 20-45 minutes to fill in the online application. Received a phone call a week or so later from a woman explaining that the position I had applied for had already been filled but that there was a few other vacancies local to me if I was interested so we arranged an interview for 2 days later. Interview went well, it was the same woman I had spoken with on the phone, she was really nice and asked fairly easy questions! I've worked in retail for years so I roughly knew what to expect! Interview lasted for about 20 minutes. Should hear back in the next week or so to whether I have been successful or not.
