    Senior CHEMIST Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Clark, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Clark, NJ).

    Interview

    There are a few levels in the R&I Team. Starting From an Intern to Associate Chemist, Chemist, SR. Chemist, and SR. Chemist II.

    First was an email from HR Director to set up a time to talk (AKA Phone Screen 30-40mins). Mostly about previous experience and whu I was looking for a new role. Next set up time to speak with department manager for a technical phone interview (30-45 mins). Questions were about my experience with working with category specific products (I.e. Skin Care, hair care, and actives). Got invited on-site to meet with department category VP (30 mins). Next with HR in person (20 mins). Next phone conference with a different category. Next day got invited to Skype with HRs boss and category Director. Offer was made following week. Drug test and background took a few days to clear. LOreal has been known to take 2-3 months for an interview/ onboarding but since my role was really needed due to high priority projects they can move super fast.

    Nine Things You Didn't Know About Working At L'Oréal

    L'Oréal may be a 108 year old corporation but that's far from saying we're all about cold, corporate la-di-da. We like to think that being present in 140 countries with over 83000 people from 158 nationalities working on 36 international brands injects a lot of personality and colour to who we are!
