    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics in January 2012.

    Interview

    You wil go through about 5 interviews. The last being an application interview. The process takes a while. Do not get fustrated as they are busy and have issues finding time to make time for you. Ensure you are flexible and meet their needs to show that you are dedicated to wanting this job. They expect you to jump when they say jump because if you don't someone else will.
