    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Columbia, MO (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    My sister has a friend at the company and introduced us. I then contacted her and we had a nice email conversation and she passed on my information to someone who was better suited to talk to me about opportunities. Then a 30 minute phone interview was conducted and it was awesome, fun, and really exciting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    it was a very brief interview process. It seems as though they are not exactly sure what they are looking for, but need someone to revamp their social media. I suggested a couple of ideas, but it seems as though they are looking for one correct answer. The interview process was completely painless and I'm sure that they are a wonderful company to work for.

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    I was fortunate enough to receive a message via LinkedIn describing an opportunity that would be the best next step in my career path. Within a week of initiative communication, I had a 30-minute phone interview with the head of recruitment. He asked brilliant questions-- surprisingly focused on where I see myself in the future and how/if this position be a good fit. Of course, I was excited to learn more. The initiative interview took some time(about 2-3weeks) to set up but the ball started to roll from there. I met the team's director and AVP of HR. It went pleasantly well, in fact most the interviews went well over the allotted time. Note: if you are knowledgable and passionate about your area of expertise, the interviewing process is way less intimidating that you'd imagine.

    The next week, I was asked to come back and chat with AVP of marketing and director of talent acquisition. The questions were less granular and more about the overarching goals of the marketing team as a whole. This focused more on the DNA of the team and what skills (both personal and professional) would be a great fit for the team. There was also a focus on forecasting social trends to gauge how forward-thinking I was.

    Just when I thought the interviewing process was over, I was invited to meet with the Vice President. While this was a bit nerve racking, it was certainly promising. By the end of the next week, I received an offer via phone call by the same recruiter that reached out to me via LinkedIn. I will be starting soon and couldn't be happier with the interviewing process and the many people I met thus far.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal (New York, NY (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    My initial communications with L'Oreal was when they visited my school for the career fair. I was then invited to an interview the day after the fair, which was 30 minutes, was mostly behavioral questions, and had two interviewers. The interview was comfortable and the questions are not difficult. They ask questions to see how you will fit in with the company. Approximately 5 weeks later I was contacted by HR to set up a second round phone interview, which was basically an overview of the job and going over details on my resume. Shortly after the second interview I was offered a summer internship. Overall, my internship was great! They gave me a lot of responsibility and valued my opinion.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very standard and behavioral. The question that stands out to me was when they asked me to list three things about myself.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate considering it was an internship and the opportunity was great enough.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at L'Oréal (Saint Louis, MO (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruitment. There was no written process, it was entirely based on an initial interview at the Career Fair and then a callback interview. The initial interview was very brief with an HR person at the Career Fair, the callback interview was more personal in a quiet room with an HR person and an operations person.
