    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at L'Oréal in October 2016.

    Interview

    I have to say that L'Oreal's HR goes as one of the most unprofessional I have ever dealt with. One of their staff reaches out to me for a phone screen and asks that I let her know my available times. I reply almost immediately and I get no response. I follow-up twice and call and still hear nothing from them. Apparently I was not the only one this happened to on my campus: two other people never heard back from the recruiter after confirming phone screen availability and one other never heard back after passing the phone screen to schedule an interview date and time. I think their HR could do better in showing that they value their candidate's time.
