    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruitment. There was no written process, it was entirely based on an initial interview at the Career Fair and then a callback interview. The initial interview was very brief with an HR person at the Career Fair, the callback interview was more personal in a quiet room with an HR person and an operations person.

    Interview

    I was recruited for a position but after that was filled I was sent to a different talent manager who thought I would fit in perfect for a digital role. I was then sent to the talent manager for the other brand and had 3 back to back interviews with 2 HR and 1 hiring manager. Although I thought the interviews all went really well, it has been a month and I have written thank you and followup emails but have not heard anything back yet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Clark, NJ).

    Interview

    Had the typical HR phone interview, with the basic screening questions, then a few weeks later I had a phone interview with someone in R&I (basically the same questions as before). Each lasted roughly an hour. Then I was invited for an onsite interview in Clark, NJ. Lasted roughly 2.5 hours and spoke with HR and R&I people. Most were very nice and asked me questions about my experience and previous research. It was pretty disorganized though -I was scheduled to start at noon, and pretty much everyone I spoke with seemed more concerned about getting their lunch in than conducting a solid interview. I waited around for the last person I was scheduled with for a half an hour while I was told she was out running errands, and then she rushed the interview to make a meeting she was then late for (NOT good interview etiquette!). Since I was from out of town, they put me up in a nice nearby hotel the night before, so it wasn't all bad.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Clark, NJ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume, I was contacted by their HR department, who then set up a phone interview with me. I spoke with the manager of R&I (the department that the position was located in), generally discussing myself, why I wanted to work for L'Oreal, and the details of the position. I was then chosen for a face-to-face interview with the same employee I spoke with on the phone, along with the VP of R&I and their HR director. Although they were all very personable and easy to talk to, the interview itself was a bit harsh. They had a list of questions that they were required to ask me in order to evaluate how I would perform in this position, and it required a lot of thinking on my feet and careful wording. However, they were not impossible questions to answer. Most consisted of questioning how I would handle myself in certain situations, and how I would go about attacking certain problems. Overall, the process (from initial resume submission to final interview) took about 2 to 2.5 weeks
