I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics

Interview

Long and very delayed. I was not contacted in between and felt like I had to chase an answer. Only to receive nothing. Interviewers were kind, however efficient communications lacked.

The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MAC Cosmetics (Toronto, ON) in Oct 2021

1 phone interview & 1 in person interview. One of the best interviews I’ve had in my professional career. Stimulating and intriguing questions are asked. The two ladies interviewing me were really great they made the entire process comfortable for me. Very professional & friendly.

Interview Questions
  • If you were the only artist on the floor, you are currently helping a customer out & 2 more customers walk in at the same time. One needs a color match and the other knows exactly what she’s getting. How would you handle the situation?

They ask color-wheel questions. Interview was pretty generic besides that. Loved working for them when I did. I would recommend working there if you’re good with people and love makeup. Gratis was nice.

Interview

The manager had us sit outside by a restaurant for the interview. During the interview, she seemed a little unprepared and did not know what to ask me. She ended up asking me if I had any questions for her because she did not like asking the usual questions that she has to ask interviewees. It was more of a conversation, which I didn't mind at the time. But I noticed that she did not ask too much about me. She only asked for my Instagram handle and pay and availability. She also asked how comfortable I was with posting on social media. She guaranteed that I would move to the next round because she "liked my energy" and told me I would hear from her Wednesday latest. My interview was Sunday, and she did not follow up with me.

Interview Questions
  • My availability, what I would like to be paid, how comfortable I was with using social media, and my Instagram handle. She then asked if I had any questions to ask her because she doesn't like to use the usual questions that they have to ask interviewees.

Interview

You have to go into the store and speak to the manager. Once you speak to them they give you a website and then you apply online. You have to answer a 100 question questionnaire. It took like an hour and a half. They screen your questions and if you do well they send you another link for a video interview.
