    Independent Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Harrisonburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Harrisonburg, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    You don't apply for it. Someone running a Mary Kay party will ask if you're interested. They invite you to coffee and hard sell the compnay. They lure you in with a large bag of product for $99. Once you sign, they talk you into opening a credit card, and then maxing it out on inventory. It's almost impossible to sell most of what you get.

    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.

    Corporate Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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.

    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.
