If you want to interview with this company its very simple! make sure you look the part and have a good personality. All black no exceptions. MAC is a fashion forward company so you must have some sense of fashion and what is hot right now.

DO NOT over do it and don't over do it. have just enough to impress you interviewer. BE OPEN TO FEEDBACK! if you are not open to feedback and take everything personal don't even apply for the job. hope this helps all aspiring makeup artists.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics in May 2013.

    Interview

    Three step interview. First, you will be asked to bring a model to do a full makeup application on, which you will have 60 minutes. Sometimes, management/interviewer will give you a specific scenario. You will be expected to complete the well-executed look in the allotted time and engage actively with the customer/model. The next step is a verbal interview with management. Typical interview questions. The last step is usually a phone interview with the SRM or MRO of your market. Also pretty standard questions, some the same. Seems like more of a formality. At my location, anyone who got the opportunity to interview with SRM or MRO got the job.

    Interview

    I had my first interview after submitting resume a week ago. I have a lot of experience but was not familiar with the brushes, the color wheel and false eye lashes. I am hoping that they saw what I could bring to the company. They will let me know in a week if I can move on to the next stage of the process which will be an application on a model.
