    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview about 20min.
    It's was a 2nd Interview with the HR Director of Singapore.
    Met the HR Director and waited for about 15min while she went to buy coffee.
    Felt that she did not assess much of my skills or experience but ask inappropriate and discriminatory questions.
    After what seemed like a very short while, it ended abruptly. She did not seem interested to know more of my skills and experience but more focus on my gender inclination which shocked me as I thought L'Oréal is very big on diversity and inclusion.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Berkeley Heights, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely tedious. There was a 2 step process. First, was an in person with HR which I got past. Then was a panel style interview that you had to create a 10 slide presentation to talk about yourself, work samples and career aspirations. The panel consisted of 10 people who were very cold and inpersonal. After my presentation I was only asked 2 questions. I had 1 /2 hours allocated but only 1/2 an hr was utilized. I was completely disappointed. HR never personally contacted me back and I got a rejection email a month later Worst experience I ever had!

    Accounting Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Berkeley Heights, NJ) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview - Why do want to work for L'oreal? - it is a private sector so hard to say if they expect you to get CPA. I didn't know how to answer questions regarding public or private sector; if you tell them you almost have CPA then they may not like it because you may apply to "big four" after completing summer internship. Hard to answer why not public accounting, and why in particular you want to go private accounting with L'oreal..! especially if you have good grades, mine is 3.94 - Rutgers.

    Interview Questions

    • many behavioral questions and private - public sector why... Loreal   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Applied through university and 2 weeks later set up a brief phone screen with HR. From there, I was invited to come to the Taste of L'oreal weekend. The weekend included a full day where you work with a team on a "problem" as observers take notes. There was also a 2-on-1 interview where they as questions similar to the HR phone screen as well as more in-depth questions. Difficult interview because of the nerve-wrecking process. Taste of L'oreal is weekend-long interview, the interviewers were really nice, but it got pretty stressful at times.
