    Corporate Office Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mary Kay.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an in person interview with multiple people. It lasted several hours and I interviewed with about 6 different individuals at different times, followed by a group interview with them.

    Following the interview, the recruiter called me and left a voicemail to contact them. After 24 hours they called again only to tell me they went with someone else after it came down to another candidate and myself. I was just shocked they would use this language and do this. Typically a company only calls when they are offering a job, not to open the sentence with "it came down between you and someone else. We are going with them." Absolutely disgusting and disrespectful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Addison, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview take place in phone call because I live in different state. HR recruiter contacted me through email asking me for available phone interview. We had first phone interview in 3 days later. The HR recruiter was very friendly and comfortable to talk to. This interview is more of personal, background experience, and relocation. The next few days after first interview, HR contacted me again that the supervisor of that position wanted to have a second interview with me in next week. The round 2 interview is questioning about my skills and work experience relate to position I applied for.

    Interview

    I received a phone call a month or two after applying online asking to schedule an interview at the corporate headquarters. I interviewed with three groups. First, the HR Manager, then two teams who told me about their work and asked me questions more specific to their needs. Everyone was very nice and polite and seemed to love working there.

    It was a phone interview. The lady was extremely nice and made me believe that she wanted me to succeed. I don't typically like phone interviews because you can't relate to the interviewer, but the lady that interviewed me was really personable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mary Kay.

    Interview

    I had a pre-screening phone interview. The recruiter was over the top excited about me, and it felt like she was ready to hand me the job. (I've interviewed enough to know when someone likes my skills vs. doesn't.) Checked in a few times and she remained positive. Then finally got a "we went forward with someone else," despite being told originally how she wanted to have me come in. I don't understand why these recruiters can't just be honest from the get-go. I wasted weeks hanging on to hope.
