    HQ Florida Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SalonCentric.

    Interview

    HR rep was very nice and thorough. However the hiring manager was very unprofessional and unethical. He wasn't prepared, probably didn't even think he had to do an interview, talked bad about the company at times, and from the first 10 seconds you could tell that he didn't want to be interviewing. I am glad to that I didn't get an an offer (assuming I didn't because they didn't follow up or respond to my email) because it left me a bad taste or what it could have been working for that department.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SalonCentric (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with my store manager with pretty simple questions asking about my experience and availability and was then invited in for a one on one interview with her. The questions were printed on a piece of paper and she was really relaxed and easy to talk to. She wrote down my answers. We got along really well and they were pretty standard interview questions. The interview was probably about 15 minutes and she told me after she was going to recommend me and pass my interview on to the district manager. I got a call for a phone interview from the district manager in the next couple days where she basically asked the same things and also asked for lots of examples. She then told me I would get a call back in a few days they would let me know if I got the position. 3 hours later I got it. I had applied on loreals website about 2 weeks before being interviewed and the interview process took less than a week.

(i filled an app out online and heard back about 2 weeks later) Then she asked me various interview questions of course and took some notes.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SalonCentric in February 2016.

    Interview

    Quick phone interview w store manager that lasted about 15 minutes, then had an in person interview with store manager and district manager. Very long interview. The district manager basically had a run down of what was required. She said if we were going to beauty school or school in general that would be a "conflict of interest." (Wut. This is a part-time job in retail.) Then she goes on and on about how we need to have an open schedule and be open to traveling to the other stores in San Diego. She also went on about how other stores will need other employees to cover for them etc. she basically was saying, "you can't have a life outside being an on-call sales associate for us." And at the VERY end she says that this job will give me 10-15 hours?!! Bish what?? So you want me to not go to school, not have goals, to work for your warehouse store for 10 hours a damn week? You funny.
