    I worked at MAC Cosmetics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can learn at MAC, there are so many customers you can practice on. I really liked the fun working environment, and the young spirit and energy.

    Cons

    Working in a busy store was physically hard, and very stressful. I think it is a perfect place to work part time, or just for a 1-2 years, because you definitely learn a lot.

    Advice to Management

    You should hire professionals to store manager and office roles more from outside the MAC. It is really nice you give opportunity to go higher in the hierarchy in the company, but sometimes I felt we miss to be more professional.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (London, England) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was two weeks long I applied online for the temp cashier position at Mac I had a video interview then a group assesment and a one to on one interview on same day, but after the interview they offered me the make up artist position. Interviewers were so so friendly and made us feel comfortable. I have my make up demo next week. I'm hoping it will be as smooth and fun as the other stages.
