    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at MAKE UP FOR EVER (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I got my first phone interview with the HR three months after applying for the job, and then had an in-person interview with the Creative Director a few days after the call. It was a pleasant interview which made me feel less stressed. After the interview I got a small design request to test out my digital design skill, which only takes less than 60 mins to complete and the difficulty was reasonable.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MAKE UP FOR EVER (New York, NY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process went really well. I have 2 rounds of interviews with members from the executive team, both of which went well. The only negative aspect was that I was told that EA's receive competitive bonuses on to then find out that EA's across the organization are not bonus eligible.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MAKE UP FOR EVER (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I went from temp to hire - I was temporary through an agency for one month prior to getting an offer at MAKE UP FOR EVER. The original position was actually elevated from administrative assistant to coordinator. This was not originally stated to me when I went in for the temporary position; I was lead to believe I would only be needed for about one month.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MAKE UP FOR EVER (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Digital Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MAKE UP FOR EVER (New York, NY).

    Interview

    After applying online for a digital marketing role, I was contacted the following week for a phone screen. I then met the hiring manager the next week, and that person's supervisor the week after that.

    The process was neither invigorating nor entirely off-putting, aside from the fact that the HR coordinator was extremely uncommunicative and rarely responded to emails. When I sent thank you or follow-up notes, I received no responses, despite being promised a response either way from the department head with whom I interviewed.
