Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Clinique (Melbourne, FL (US)) in October 2018.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clinique (Lexington, KY (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    First, I interveiwed with a Macy's manager who was very nice! Then after that she called the Clinique manager up to the office. She interveiwed me and then took me to the counter for a free consultation. After, she said she would email the clinique office to see if I was recommended for Clinique on Talent plus. By the time I got home I got a call that the Clinique main office wanted a facetime interview. Had the interveiw the next morning at 9 AM then got a call at 1:30 PM from Macy's offering me the Position. Best Interveiw I've ever participated in! Only advice I can give is be yourself, thats what Clinique really looks for regardless of background or gender.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Clinique in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was very long and I was unaware of the process. I filled out the application and was emailed with a scheduled interview time. After that interview, I was scheduled to come back the next day with the second interview. I was expecting to find out by the second interview if I had the job or not, but no, another week has gone by and I did have my talent plus interview and now I'm waiting to hear back. I guess they are just extremely particular.

    Beauty Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clinique (Leawood, KS (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very intensive. I met and interviewed with the store manager, the counter manager, the account executive and also did the talent + phone interview. Everyone was super nice and easy to talk to until the talent + portion. The interviewer for the talent + portion is instructed to give no type of feedback or further explanation of the questions once they are asked. They will repeat the question for you but they leave the interpretation of the question up to you. It is a very one sided question/answer conversation. We spoke for about 25-30 minutes and she informed me that the retailer would get back to me with a decision. The talent + portion was the most nerve racking component of the process. All in all, I didn't get the position with Clinique but I was offered a flex position with Macy's, where I can pick up shifts as they become available at any of the make up counters they offer.

Overal the whole process was amazing and very welcoming! It's an amazing line to start of with! It's like a big o family. Having a makeup background or beautician background helps a lot as well.
