Cosmetician/Beauty Expert Interview

Anonymous Employee in Aurora, ON (Canada)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Aurora, ON (Canada)) in July 2016.

Interview

I applied online in July 2016, and got an interview a week and a half later with the boutique manager. She brought me to the back of the boutique, and we chatted about my resume, and most of the interview questions were makeup based, so if you know your stuff, you can make a really good impression during the interview. After a 20 minute interview, she told me that I would have to come in for a second interview with the front store manager. He did the same thing, brought me into his office, we chatted about my resume, and why I wanted to work there.

Both my interviews were extremely easy, if you show that you are eager to be there and that you work well in a team, they'll hire you. As for the interview, they ended up doing most of the talking, so just listen attentively and pitch in whenever you can.

I didn't see anyone in the reviews in the same situation as I was, even when both managers were thoroughly impressed with me, they specifically required a list of references before they considered giving me an offer. (I gave them only 3 references, I suppose that would suffice)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shoppers Drug Mart (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in February 2009.

    Interview

    -Two interviews
    The manager that I interviewed with was amazing. She hired me, and was terrific.
    Typical questions, what do you see yourself doing in 5 years? have you had any experience? can you sell? Not a difficult interview.
    She also gave me a mini lesson on skin care and asked me to sell it back to her. It was actually really neat.

    Interview Questions

    • The only thing that was out of the ordinary was that I had to sell her skin care. However, the job is selling and it is commission based, therefore it wasn't as odd as it may have seemed.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    She called me and told me I was hired. She asked me to come in for a 4 hour shift (later that week)to train with the cash register.
