Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics in Nov 2020

Interview

Video Interview, every exchange was automated through email. Even the video interview, there wasn't a person, just prompt questions. Seemed like an inefficient way to know if someone is good with people, I'm better in person than on camera with my conversational skills considering you can respond based on someone's energy in the room.

Interview Questions
  • Normal interview questions, but they asked you to explain how to apply a smokey eye to a customer in tiny amount and I definitely got cut off. It was uncomfortable because it was just me with a full face already on trying to show that. Ridiculous set up, they have no idea how well I can do a smokey eye that way or my sales ability.

Average Interview
Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Orlando, FL) in Jun 2019

Interview

Easy going & laidback interview. Must have a love for makeup or artistry. Consistently optimistic and ready to make sales. There is also a systematic way to talk to clients that they enforce on you daily. The hiring manager is looking for someone who is positive, fast paced, personable and can collaborate creatively with teammates & clients. They will also ask you to do a makeup demo on someone you know or random then time you on how fast you can practice sanitation & a face (forgot how long)

Interview Questions
  • What would you do with a client that is unhappy with the outcome of her makeup look?
