    Corporate Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Mary Kay in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was told about this job by a recruiter who contacted me through LinkedIn. There was a phone screen with HR, then a phone interview with the hiring attorney about two weeks later. I was then asked to come interview in person at corporate headquarters. I faced approximately 12 or 13 different attorneys over a full 8+ hour day, with an offsite lunch attended by 2 attorneys plus the hiring attorney. The questions I were asked were primarily to gauge fit with their corporate principles, although I did face a few knowledge-based questions that were just to see what my background was. Everyone was very pleasant, and I was told of the results of the interview within a week or so. I do get the impression they are not easily satisfied by candidates and may have set the bar too high, as the job remains open as of the date of this submission, over six months later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Dallas, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I met with the hiring manager and his team in a panel interview at the beautiful Mary Kay corporate building in Dallas, TX. My overall impression was that they would be a great group to work with but they were more interested in a person that was 100% scrum and my background was a composure of waterfall and scrum mixed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The interviewing process is very slow. I applied in August of 2014, didn't get called for an interview until the end of February 2015. From the first group interview to the second one-on-one interview I heard nothing for three weeks. I actually thought I didn't get the job.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Prague (Czech Republic)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Talking to the CEO of the location. Very casual. Gave me a better understanding of my job, due to the job description being very vague. We had to make a presentation on 3 products along with evaluating 3 products, how it's marketed and how they are doing. Pretty simple math. However we had a very limited time to finish these two tasks, and I believed it showed how we can work under pressure, which after a couple weeks of being there I realized that it is a critical skill in this company.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First phone interview. And then onsite interview. The onsite interview is 1 hour, the interview was really conversational. The two interviewer are really nice and introduced a lot about Mary Kay. They began with small talk and then asked me about my internship experience and so on. At last, they told me that they will give me the result in one week. However, I got the result after ten days. The HR left me a voice message and when I called back, she did not answer the phone. Anyway, very frustrated experience.

    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.
