Almost everything you could ask. At the assessment centre we had to do a presentation on market trends of the beauty industry and how they affect L'Oreal. After that there was a long one-on one interview which asked some challenging questions such as - what does success mean to you?
Graduate, Melbourne
All the typical questions were asked in the more informal of the two interviews, e.g. tell me about a time when you.... The formal interview was a deep dive into who you were as a person to see if you'd be a fit with the company

Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Prepare for behavioural type questions Think of Marketing strategies to propose Learn the values of L'Oreal and integrate them in your interview responses i.e. being innovative and entrepreneurial driven
Graduate, Melbourne
Don't over prepare but definitely research the company but more so the industry. Have a look at the brands we own but look at where the market (skincare, cosmetics, hair care) is moving towards, the trends in the market
Graduate, Melbourne
Be open and honest, don't be afraid to discuss your weaknesses, showing that you are self-aware and not afraid to admit you are not perfect is a strength within itself
Midlevel, Melbourne
Reflect on your values and larger life goals and understand how this job feeds into a greater mission. Be a strong collaboration
Graduate, Melbourne
I would say our company looks more for a well-rounded candidate - they look to match the cultural fit of the company, they know there are many things that can be taught on the job. Confidence I thought was a big factor in assessment center - as well as that I think my passion and knowledge for the industry also helped (but wouldn't need to be a crucial factor).
Graduate, Melbourne
Do your research on the company, the history, the brands, the management committee, and brainstorm some of the potential struggles the company might go through in the future.
