    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Purity Cosmetics (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I walked into the store with a friend and briefly mentioned that once I got a job, I'd want to buy the foundation from there. The associate that was helping me overheard that and literally said "Wait, do you need a job?" to which I replied yes, and she just said "Dude, work here." and gave me an application on the spot. I met the assistant manager, and she told me to come back during a hiring event the mall had. I came back two days later, stood through a 10 minute (at most) interview and was hired basically on the spot.

    Pure Brand Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Purity Cosmetics (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I had two interviews with this company and both were pretty bad. The first interview was for a Pure Brand Ambassador. I was sent a email which happened to be group inviting us all for a interview. So, whoever was sent this email and replied was able to see the conversations. That should of been a red flag #1. When trying to get to the interview I could not find the location. It turns out whoever sent me the information gave us all the wrong address! How do you not know where you work?! The only reason I found the building is because it had a sign outside. I got to the door and it was locked. I was pretty confused. The front desk had no one and it looked like a empty building. About 10 mins later someone came and opened up the door. I was brought into a group interview with 4 other candidates. The girls who interviewed us dressed like twins and were pretty young. The interview was not professional. They set out a couple products and asked us to sell it to them. I was contacted for a 2nd interview but the pay was lower then what I was already making.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Purity Cosmetics.

    Interview

    I applied for this position and was contacted by the HR representative who requested my phone interview availability. After I responded with availability for the next two days, a response came on the afternoon of the second day that said the HR representative would call on the third day at 10:30. The HR representative never called and has not made any attempt of explain why she never called for the phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I found the choice to not call for the scheduled phone interview be very unexpected and very unprofessional. However, this behavior is in line with other reviews about the behavior of this company.   Answer Question
