    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at A.S. Watson Group (Milan (Italy)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I had two interviews, a first with one with one of the managers and a second one with the manager, the HR and an employee.

    The first interview was basically a cultural-fit interview with three personal questions about my background, hobbies and main drivers.

    The second interview was a discussion about a PowerPoint they requested me to do, explaining the approach I would use in managing two real projects the company introduced: a pilot project and the possible changes to be implemented after the pilot is introduced.

    What I disliked about the process is

    - the fact that they also ask for new ideas and ask to be creative and imagine new solutions: it's fine, but for this position, hundreds of people applied. It's too easy to get dozens and dozens of ideas from people you eventually won't hire, people who are working hard on their homework trying to make a good impression. I don't think is just fair. Please change your methods and respect your candidates;

    - private questions

    - very little details about how the job is done

    - the position is open to everyone, but they asked too many questions about skin care ideas and innovations to be implemented, as if they were expecting an expert in skin care sector.

    Disappointed.
