    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at L'Oréal (London, England) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The process included application, followed by video questions and then maths test, attention to detail test, project presentation and then one on one interview. The communication from HR was slightly slow, and thus the whole thing took a few months. However, it was altogether a good experience. A lot of research of L'Oréal owned brands and the company and their culture as a whole is required for a successful interview.
