    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Avon Products in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process seems to be ongoing...

    Applied online (March 2014) and get called for phone interview ~3 weeks later (April 2014)

    Had an initial phone interview with HR followed by a phone interview with an Executive Director. I got invited to come in for an onsite interview 2 weeks later. I met with 2 Brand Managers, a Global Director, and the HR Manager.

    I did not receive any feedback so I reached out (end of April) and was told the position just went on hold but I am still under consideration and I should check back in a month. So I followed up (end of May 2014) and got a response within 5 minutes that the position is still on hold and movement is expected in July and that I should follow up again.

    So I followed up end of June and never got a response...no phone call/no email reply/no update to my status online...

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Avon Products.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was typical for a large company. Onsite interview was rolling along until Lunch. Maybe I expected too much, but we went to the cafeteria, where the hiring manager had me pay for my own lunch. Based on experience from other companies, this seemed a little odd. There was a bad vibe the rest of the day/
