Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lancome (Pearl Harbor, HI) in January 2011.

Interview

It was one interview, very casual. They wanted to see your personality more than anything. If you're nice bubbly and friendly with open hours and a will to sell hard, you're in the door! They called me the next day to offer me the job.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lancome (Concord, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It was really fun and no tension at all. The Lady was a nice, jovial, friendly interviewer and she asked me questions to give her idea about my interests and personality. My suggestion for those who have upcoming interviews for this position, dress nicely and neat, and show your skill in makeup. If you're bubbly and friendly, you would have no problem. They want to see if you have no problem at connecting with people.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lancome (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for an interview at Macy's (Kenwood Towne Centre in Cincinnati, OH). Angela (woman who gave my interview) went out of the way to tell me how they don't hire people who have never worked Lancôme at Macy's before to work this counter and told me she had six applicants after me and that I wouldn't know for a week. I got an email two hours later saying I wouldn't be considered (after going to visit the counter and discovering that both the women currently working it had never worked in cosmetics before and were hired by her less than two weeks ago). I also included how I love Lancôme and use so much of their makeup regularly and also use almost exclusively Lancôme brushes. I told her how excited and thrilled I would be to represent the Lancôme brand and what it would mean to me.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lancome (Hickory, NC) in August 2017.

    I had a phone interview on Friday with the account executive. I was then called into Dillards for an interview on Monday with the cosmetics manager and the store manager. I filled out paperwork and a background check. After my background check was cleared I was hired on and started training with Dillards the next day. I am waiting to hear where they will send me for the Lancome training.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lancome (Newark, DE) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It took about three weeks since I had to meet every manager for the store, department, and the actual company itself. Very calming though during the interviews. I would recommend bringing in a portfolio of some works that you have done to boost their choices towards you.

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Covina, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lancome (Covina, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This is the 2nd time this has happened to me now. I got an email to schedule an interview, and when I get there, they already filled the spot. 1st time was Montebello mall, and the 2nd time was West Covina mall. It's very infuriating when you prepare for a job and you get there and already fill the position you were applying for. At the montebello mall, the lady didn't even bother interviewing me. She just said "sorry, maybe next time." The West Covina lady was extremely nice, interviewed me, apologized, and informed me on how I could get a position there. But I just don't understand the reasoning behind scheduling someone for an interview, but filling the position anyway. It's a waste of time. They seriously need to finish the interview process before just filling spots right away and wasting time.
