    Makeup Artist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NYX Cosmetics (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Meet&Greet, not interview. There were about 25 candidates around a table and 3 managers. We went around and introduced ourselves. They asked typical retail questions but we had to keep our answers to a minimum because of the amount of people. We were told that the meet&greet was not high stakes and everyone could potentially be hired.

    Key Holder Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NYX Cosmetics (San Jose, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call the next day to come in for an in-person interview with the store manager. Asked me pretty basic question about my past managerial experience, experience with cosmetics and customer service. It was a big plus that I had previously interviewed with NYX for a sales associate position but declined their offer of lower than what I was asking for wages, they had remembered me from that previous interview and were excited to see me again. After my interview they told me they would get back to be within 48 hours as they had a few more candidate interviews that day, but wanted to fill the position as soon as possible. I got a call the very next morning that I got the job. Overall very quick and easy process. Hiring process took about two weeks and includes a lot of paper work, a drug test, and complete background check. Quite annoying that the process was way easier than the sales associate interview that required two interviews and model application for minimum wage, honestly there are better paying entry-level cosmetic jobs.

    Interview

    You get 2 interviews. Basic interview and a makeup interview where you bring in your model and apply product. They look for product knowledge and hygiene. You don’t have to be super knowledgeable but sound confident and pretend as if you were applying product on a actual customer.
