    Counter Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Clinique (Albany, NY (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I'd actually applied online through Macy's website for the Chanel Beauty Advisor position. Within an hour I'd gotten a response wanting to schedule an interview, which I was able to do through the automated system online. I scheduled it for the next day. I went in with a full face of makeup and my resume, and the Cosmetics Manager looked at my resume and noted that I had retail management experience. She asked if I was looking for management, and when I said yes, she pulled out a different file and asked some different interview questions. At the end she told me that there was a Clinique Counter Manager position available and she felt I'd be a good fit for it; she felt I was overqualified for the position of Beauty Advisor. She had me take a Talent Quiz at another computer and scheduled a follow-up interview for two days later with the Clinique Account Executive. When I arrived for that one, she asked a few questions about my management style, then told me what would be expected of me for the position. I was told they'd call me later that day because they needed to get the approval from Macy's for my hourly rate, which was customized according to my experience. I got the call about three hours later with the official offer.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clinique (Houston, TX (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy going. The interview process went better than expected, just be prepared. I was interviewed by both the account executive and counter manager, so it was a good thing that I came with an extra copy of my resume! The interview was more of a conversation, it wasn’t anything nerve racking like a structured question interview would be.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clinique in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the store (Stage) and a few days later got a call to set up an interview. The store interview went really well. It was laid back and conducted by the Estée Lauder counter manager. I interviewed on a Monday, that Friday I was called to say I was their pick for the position. I had to take a Talent Plus assessment online and called them back to let them know when I had completed it.
    They called me the following Monday and said according to the assessment that I was not a good recommendation for the job. I'm not sure what they were looking for as I had passed the store's assessment easily.
