    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Urban Decay Cosmetics (Newport Beach, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    I was interviewed a total of 4 times. The initial position I had applied for was filled by founder's best friend. Eventually they 'created' a position for me. I was hired about 6 months after my last interview. As with most things with Urban Decay the hiring and interview process was completely disorganized and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked why I was friends with a particular person on Facebook. Apparently the person interviewing me didn't like said person (who I barely knew anyway).   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate for a cent more. I advise anyone looking to work here to steer clear. Working in such a hostile environment is not worth all the money in the world...and they under-pay everyone!!!
