    I applied online. I interviewed at L'Oréal.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website. A week later, I received a telephone interview. They explained to me what the interview was going to be like and confirmed my details. Then I was asked questions about the company and competency questions relating to my previous experience. They finished by asking if I had any questions for them.
