    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guerlain.

    Interview

    Applied via their career website. Received a call from a junior HR 2 months later saying they are very enthusiast about my application. She scheduled a phone interview two weeks later. The day of the interview, I waited 50 minutes for her to call me (didn't have her phone number, but did sent her an email while waiting). She then calls me and says that she was in a meeting and is busy. She doesn't even sound sorry and just say that we'll postpone the interview to the week after. Then she emails me the day before saying that they recruited someone else. The whole process was just a big joke. I found the Guerlain Hr team very unprofessional and would not recommend anyone to work there (be it an internship or a permanent contract). I heard negative feedback from friends who worked for 6 months to 2 years in different offices in Europe and America. They have a tiny budget and no brand visibility outside of France, compared to bigger players. They try their hardest to appeal to a younger target, and lost their luxury aura. If you want to work in a toxic environment, this is definitely for you. Managers and HR do not represent the so called luxury Maison they want to be, they have no manners and ethic.

    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guerlain (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    This interview was fast and efficient. Most of the questions ask were behavioural. I only met with the marketing director and not the product manager. They want to know that you are bilingual, have some experience in marketing and are well organized. They also will test your knowledge about the brands and its product.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guerlain (Paris (France)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Un premier échange téléphonique afin de connaitre ma situation et ce que je souhaite faire. Puis on m'a demandé de me déplacer sur Paris. Venant de Marseille, cela a coûté un peu cher mais cela valait le coup car il s'agissait vraiment du poste que je souhaitais.
    Cette rencontre devait se faire avec la RH responsable de l'offre. Un entretien d'une heure a eu lieu avec des questions basiques sur moi, mon expérience et pourquoi guerlain puis on m'a mis dehors alors que j'avais fait le déplacement, 1h c'est 1h.
    Après plusieurs relances pendant plus d'un mois, je n'ai jamais eu de réponse, positives ou négatives.
