MAC Makeup Artist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Perth, Western Australia (Australia)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Perth, Western Australia (Australia)) in February 2017.

Interview

I applied online with SEEK for an airport position and got a phone call perhaps just over a week later and the manager asked me some questions (like a mini-interview) and then perhaps a week after thatI got an email saying they wanted to do a skype interview with me, it was organised with a manager interstate, she was absolutely lovely and encouraging! A week after that I was invited to a face to face interview at the airport. The interview was part talk and questions and part makeup demo (which was super nerve racking!) I walked away thinking I screwed up and there was no way I got it, but a few more weeks later I heard back they were checking my references and just recently I got the job! The whole experience was long but worth it, a lot of waiting but everyone I met was so lovely and just made me feel very valued and excited!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Brisbane (Australia)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview, group Interview at Estée Lauder, questionnaire and skills test then one on one interview. Iwas the oldest one at the interview and they kept asking me about my age. And when we did our skills test we had 20 minutes to do it in. I was given a full face such as moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, powder, contour and highlighter. Which you had to share ask the products needed with the 10 others at the interview so of course it wasn't completed in the time. So I was unsuccessful.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (City of London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I did the online application, then 3-4 weeks later I've got a phone call saying I can go for an interview with the MAC store manager here in London. 12 years make-up experience, website, full portfolio including TV work, music video, celebrity clients etc and also 6 months retail experience. Got some trick questions like if I am happy to wear colourful make-up including yellow lips, extreme make-up and also Am I happy to do only foundation application in the first 3 months, because as a newly recruited make-up artist I am only can do give products to customers and test the foundation on them.
    Brave face, up for challenge I said yes.... NO CALL since and I see them wearing normal MAC kinda make-up

    Interview

    Bon déroulement mais l’argument du refus est pour moi hors contexte!car dire à une personne qui a 16 ans d’expérience dans la vente, qu’elle n’a pas d’expérience est celle Mme une insulte ...je l’ai très mal pris .
