    Interview

    The process was easy. I was referred to the position by a colleague. I interviewed with the department manager, then HR, Then the staff and manager who took me to lunch. That was more than 10 years ago. The company changed drastically since then and it is not the same culture from 10 years ago.

    Toxicologist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avon (Pearl River, NY (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was the worst experience ever. I interviewed with 4 different people, but one of the senior toxicologists was very mean and asked me every single detail from my resume. He was very rude, and his questions were not totally about the position. He just tried to find a question that I could not answer. The other 3 people were nice. But after the interview, I sent an email to the director about that senior toxicologist's attitude. I felt terrible for a long time.

    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Avon.

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter on campus, was then given a phone interview a few weeks later. The recruiter did not ask me anything except one question and then proceeded to compliment me and my skill set. I felt very happy after the interview but never heard back from the company.

    I then followed up and was told that all candidates moving on would be reached out to. It has been a couple of months and I haven't heard back. Overall, the recruiter was kind and flexible, but I really wish that I was not given a false hope of moving onto the next stage.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avon (Phoenix, AZ (US)).

    Interview

    It was a very intense interview process. The one thing I would do differently is ask the candidate where they want to work, not vague questions on the type of people they like to deal with
