    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Essilor.

    Interview

    Lengthy. Too many interviews. They take very long to make a decision and if it is not you, there is no follow up. Essilor has no basis on what they need. The job description does not reflect the position you will be doing.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in East Syracuse, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Essilor (East Syracuse, NY).

    Interview

    Long but worth it. Thorough interview process. If you are serious about joining the Essilor group they do their proper vetting and it does take awhile to go through their candidates but absolutely worth it in the end.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Farmers Branch, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Essilor (Farmers Branch, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Entire interview process was not well managed. This may be partially caused by HR and partially within Finance. Interviewers were late and not prepared. Questions were mostly basic, except for excel usage and capabilities.

    Brand Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Henderson, NV
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Essilor (Henderson, NV) in May 2017.

    Interview

    This process was entirely too long and honestly somewhat absurd. It started with a phone screen with an outside recruiter, moved to a video interview through a platform called HireVue, then to a phone interview with the hiring manager, then a phone interview with her boss, then a Gallup assessment for personality/ sales process acumen, and THEN would have moved to an in person interview (and honestly, who knows how many) had I not been offered and accepted another job. Overall poor communication and far too labor intensive of a process for the OTE and limited upside potential of this company.

    Interview Questions

    • All very rote- basic sales interview questions.

    Brand Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Essilor in March 2017.

    Interview

    It took 14+ days after I applied for anyone to contact me. And the only reason I was contacted was because I sent an email directly to a C level person. The recruiter I spoke with was not prepared. She did not even read my resume and asked the same question repeatedly. This person said they would send me their contact information and it took 48+ hours to do that. She also could not answer any of the questions I asked. Seemed annoyed to be interviewing me
