    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mary Kay (East Lansing, MI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The two girls I interviewed with were very nice and easy going. Their questions weren't difficult and told me they didn't want to "drill" me with questions which was nice to hear. They spent time discussing the benefits that came along with the position. Overall, I can't say anything bad about the experience.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    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.

    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 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mary Kay (Addison, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    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.
