    Process Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The whole hiring process was great. 2 phone interviews and 1 in person interview. 1st phone interview was with a member of the HR recruiting team. The HR member remained in contact with me through the entire duration of the interview process. He kept me updated and helped me prepare for upcoming interviews. The 2nd phone interview was with the department head. She asked some tough and thought provoking questions. She was easy to talk to and I could really tell that she was passionate about the company. It is nice to hear a sincere passion for a job in the interviewer’s voice. My 3rd interview was an on-site interview which consisted of 4 parts. The first part I sat down with the department head, the supervisor for the position, and a local member of HR. Here I was asked more detailed questions that related to my current work and what I would bring to the position. There were also questions about problem solving and personality traits. Next was a plant tour, where I got to see where I would be working. The third part consisted of a 15 min presentation I prepared on a sample of my work. Another member of the department joined here and there were a few more interview questions. Finally, there was a team building exercise to see how I worked with others. After the interview was over, I walked out genuinely happy. Everyone I met was extremely friendly and seemed happy to be working there. The interviewers asked difficult questions and seemed like they genuinely cared about what I said. At the end of the interview, I was given critiques on some aspects of the interview. This made me feel like L’Oreal wanted to see me grow as a person. Overall the interview process was the most organized process that I have been part of.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at L'Oréal in October 2017.

    Interview

    HR was very disorganized. They never responded to my email back for my availability for a technical phone interview and scheduled me for an interview without any notice. I was surprised to receive the call and the interviewer seemed disorganized as well. Wanted me to fly to headquarters in two days for an on-site interview without any advance notice. Overall the company seemed a bit unprofessional in the entire interview process.

    Did a phone interview and then an in-person, which was basically just a presentation about my greatest accomplishment and questions about it. It was a panel of 4 interviewers. One was kind of rude, 2 looked disinterested. Barely asked any questions.

    Supply Chain Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Berkeley Heights, NJ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    From the initial email to the job offer was a little over 2 months.

    I was first contacted by a recruiter by email for a request for an initial phone screening. The questions were very basic and reflected the job description, e.g. why L'Oreal, how are your Excel skills, salary requirements.

    After the initial phone screen, I was contacted to set up a Skype/phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was a very basic first interview. Following this interview, I received follow-up that they would like to for me to do an in-person panel interview in NJ. I was required to prepare a 15 minute presentation that I was given info about prior to the interview. The whole interview lasted about 1.5 hours and included time for questions and a case study. Following the in-person interview, I was asked to complete two more phone interviews with directors from two of their facilities. Those each lasted about 30-40 minutes.

    Following the phone interviews, I received an offer about a week later and accepted.
