Marketing Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

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.

Interview Questions

  • During 2-on-1, they asked questions about how you would go about marketing a certain product to a specific population.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Ask you why you want to work for L'Oreal and to explain how you would market two products. They are watching you the whole weekend even during meals and group work. Make sure to not stick with people just from your school and branch out and meet as many people as possible.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Initially applied through on-campus services and on the website. They really look for people who also participate in their Brandstorm Case Competition. So if this case is offered at your university, it drastically increases your chances of getting an interview if you participate in the case competition. The interview weekend was very competitive. It includes 3 days -- first night of presentations and networking, second day of a group case interview, and third day of a two-on-one interview. The weekend will be in New York City. They put so much into the weekend which is really assuring because it shows how much they value their interns.

    Interview Questions

    • The group case was unexpectedly difficult. They will be writing down everything you say in the group, so that was the hardest part of the weekend. Also in the two-on-one interview, come prepared with which brands you like and what types of marketing you most enjoy.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not too much negotiation, but they do give you flexibility with your start date

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application and was then given a surprise phone interview. I was then accepted to attend the Taste of L'Oreal weekend event. There were over 1,000 applicants and only 80 chosen to attend. After attending the weekend recruiting event I interviewed with 3 people from a specific division. After the interview one of the interviewers actually gave me a hug before I flew back home. They are really invested in their talent and are very enthusiastic about recruitment.

    Interview Questions

    • They placed two new products on the table and asked me to analyze them and describe why they fit with the specific brand they were identified with.   1 Answer
    • Why the Beauty Industry and why L'Oreal.   Answer Question
    • They may also ask you to give an on the spot sales pitch for the product depending on the division you interview with. There is Professional, Consumer and Luxury division.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Yes they were VERY kind and understanding. I let them know I had an exploding offer and they got back to me within two days. It is really all about fit. L'Oreal has a very collaborative culture and they want to know that you will be a good fit. Show personality and a keen sense for the beauty industry.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Initial communications were smooth. One phone conversation with HR asking about my year of studies, program, return to school following the internship, etc. Second call was a phone interview with HR which they conduct to basically get to know the candidate and decide whether they have a "mind for marketing".
