    Freelance Makeup Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Lancome (Atlanta, GA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I put in applications for a couple of locations, and it just showed me how unorganized management is. They kept reaching out to me for an interview, and I would respond only for them to take weeks to get back to me. I finally landed an interview and it was just bad. I showed up early, only for the account manager to arrive 15 minutes later than scheduled. She had so much to say to make herself seem as though she was this knowledgeable professional, but her demeanor stated otherwise. I was offered the position only for the lady to never get back to me on a start date. Lancôme if you ever take the time to read this, please inform your account managers that organization and timeliness is key. The most unprofessional interview I've ever experienced and a pure waste of time. I will never put in an application for this company.

    Counter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in DeKalb, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lancome (DeKalb, IL).

    Interview

    I interviewed with the store manager and H&R manager -- they asked about my leadership experience, my job experiences, my communication skills, how to solve conflicts in team settings, my experience with the product (I wore a Lancome shadow palette to the interview and knew the colors by name, bonus points!), what my best/worst qualities are, how to lead a team effectively, and a few situation-specific questions.

    I then interviewed over the phone with a woman from Lancome corporate, it was more of a personality test with no right or wrong answers. I think she told me the results at the end or perhaps called me back with the results, she told me what my strongest qualities were and wished me luck.
