Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (San Jose, CA).

Interview

I went through many verbal interviews at varies locations and 2 makeup interviews .My interview process as a whole took roughly one year. It takes way longer to apply for a permanent position then it does if you just apply as a freelancer and then work your way up. Also working as a freelancer you have more of a chance to get hired first if anything does open up (because mac likes to hire within first)

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Seattle, WA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Meet with Store Managers, then district training manager, then mock/timed makeup application. The First interview was easy going asked all the expected questions in customer service. The second interview was at another location with the district manger whom was extremely rude and late to meeting. The makeup application was was going and allowed you to show talent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The 1st interview was a meet and greet witch lasted 5-10 minutes, and from there you will get a second interview witch is the makeup application. Where you bring a model, they switch your model, and you only get 30 minutes. And the last interview is about if u can work holidays and what not.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Brentwood, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    they ask you to bring a model to do a make over on and then they ask everyone to switch models so you do not get to work on the model you brought.some applicants brought men and un cooperative and decidedly unattractive older models for this process which left others at a disadvantage.

    Interview

    Completely online. Was shown the question for 30 seconds, then given around 2 minutes to answer through video recording. It's a little bit awkward,I would've preferred to speak to a real person but it's nice to have 30 seconds to prepare and then watch your own response afterwards
