    Interview

    Interview is very straight forward. They ask for no technical questions, or difficult questions. They start by asking you to walk them through your resume. Then some questions on your previous work experience, what you did and what you have learned from them. It is a very conversational interview and they are very kind. Act confident and you will be fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Estée Lauder Companies in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was an internal referral. Spoke to someone in HR over the phone- took them two weeks to set up an interview. Interviewed with HR, senior manager and director. I felt all interviews went overall good, I sent my thank you notes. Followed up several times with HR- nobody ever got back to me. I find this to be incredibly unprofessional, especially considering I was an internal referral.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Estée Lauder Companies (Miami, FL (US)).

    Interview

    Consister of three rounds: HR, Manager and Director. All interviewers were friendly and it felt a lot like a conversation rather than an interview. The HR interviews were about my long/short term goals. The Manager's was more technical based on skills and my ability to do the job. The Director's was mostly behavioral and seeing if I would be the right fit for the team.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Estée Lauder Companies (Frisco, TX (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It took a few weeks before I was able to actually get an interview. There were a lot of steps that had to be done online, on my part, but the steps I had to take were not available for about a week. The actual interview took about ten minutes. They didn't want a resume, just asked a few questions like "what would you do in X situation".
