    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.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Essilor (Dallas, TX) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Recruiting contacted me for an interview. I completed their basic skills test but never heard back from the company's inside recruiter even with period followups via phone and email.
    ADVICE - Avoid Essilor's recruiting team and try to communicate only with the hiring manager.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Essilor.

    Interview

    This was a typical interview process with typical questions. The interviewer did however seem to be "shooting from the hip" with the interview questions. This gave the interview a natural flow, but may have led to a subjective choice in for the final candidate. One would expect a set list of questions to be asked, but that didn't seem to be the case

    Senior Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dudley, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Essilor (Dudley, MA).

    Interview

    It was over 25 years ago that I was interviewed, and things have changed alot. Everyone goes through the application, from hourly to upper management. In engineering these aps are reviewed by the managers in the department hiring, then interviews are done one on one with each manager. They meet separately to decide who to bring back for round 2.

    Interview Questions

    • So long ago I can't remember, but it was all technical related.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Each job has a job grade that has a min max, and they aim for mid. But if negotiation is higher, the following years will always be below everyone else to bring it back in line. Grad degrees add to this limit.
