    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was an internal employee applying to a new position. Getting the interview was difficult bc getting in touch with HR can be a struggle at times.
    However, once the ball got rolling - the process was very quick and HR offered A LOT of support.
    I had to hand in my resume and HR set up the interview time.

    Interview Questions

    • This is a more entry level position so I was asked where I would see myself going in X amount of years and what attracted me to this position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate bc the offer was competitive and this is an entry level position. I suggest having a good network of people on your side so they can speak to your skill set.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took over a month. There was a series of three phone interviews with two different people. They asked basic questions like why do I want to work here and asked about my background. The phone interviews were very comfortable and were more of a conversation than an interview. overall, I had a very positive experience interviewing with L'Oreal.

    Social Media Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    I was fortunate enough to receive a message via LinkedIn describing an opportunity that would be the best next step in my career path. Within a week of initiative communication, I had a 30-minute phone interview with the head of recruitment. He asked brilliant questions-- surprisingly focused on where I see myself in the future and how/if this position be a good fit. Of course, I was excited to learn more. The initiative interview took some time(about 2-3weeks) to set up but the ball started to roll from there. I met the team's director and AVP of HR. It went pleasantly well, in fact most the interviews went well over the allotted time. Note: if you are knowledgable and passionate about your area of expertise, the interviewing process is way less intimidating that you'd imagine.

    The next week, I was asked to come back and chat with AVP of marketing and director of talent acquisition. The questions were less granular and more about the overarching goals of the marketing team as a whole. This focused more on the DNA of the team and what skills (both personal and professional) would be a great fit for the team. There was also a focus on forecasting social trends to gauge how forward-thinking I was.

    Just when I thought the interviewing process was over, I was invited to meet with the Vice President. While this was a bit nerve racking, it was certainly promising. By the end of the next week, I received an offer via phone call by the same recruiter that reached out to me via LinkedIn. I will be starting soon and couldn't be happier with the interviewing process and the many people I met thus far.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    After working with an external recruiter, L'Oreal's internal recruiting department interviewed me twice (informational) before I interviewed with an HR manager (informal, "review your resume")--this first stage of the process took a total of two weeks. After my interview with HR, the balance of the process unfolded over two weeks. I interviewed once on the phone with my future manager (situational and behavioral interview), and met with her again, more informally, in person over coffee. Final round interview was a day of conversations in the New York City office, where I met with division vice presidents. Nothing about the interview process was off-putting. There are no trick questions--the company just wants to make sure you're talented, experienced, and ready for progression. They hire with your next two-to-three roles in mind. The process was thorough and fantastic.

    Interview Questions

    • Situational: Describe how you would approach managing down a large amount of inventory.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Internal pay structure is relatively straightforward at the manager level--not much room for negotiation.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Miami, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Taste of L'Oreal---personality portion, analysis of case, lunch with executives. They watch you the majority of the time, even while you prep for the presentation (I believe to gauge your leadership capabilities). Funnily enough I performed a rap on my personality portion because the activity was titled creativity assessment. Worked for me because I got the interview.
    Interview--- 2/3 on 1
