Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have some pretty lofty career goals, and after researching Estee Lauder Companies and its global impact, plus learning more about this position, I feel that this role fits with my future aspirations. I would love to see myself promoted based on my hard work and results, and I love that Estee Lauder Companies nurtures its employee talent with a focus on development and career paths within and across the organization"
Michelle's Answer #2
"This particular position is a goal that I have set my sights on for quite some time. I believe it is the next step in a long and fulfilling career in the beauty industry. The industry leadership that Estee Lauder Companies offers, as well as its mentoring and professional development opportunities, are immense for me, and I feel confident I will gain skills in this role that will make me a successful retailer."
2.
If you were the successful candidate, how much notice would you require to give your current employer before beginning with Estee Lauder Companies?
The interviewer would like to know if you plan to give notice to your current employer, or if you can start with Estee Lauder Companies right away. It is always a good decision to show the potential employer that you would provide the professional courtesy of notice to your current place of employment.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I would like to give my current employer the professional courtesy of 2 weeks' notice. I can begin this new role with Estee Lauder Companies immediately after that."
Michelle's Answer #2
"If you have a vacation booked, this is the perfect time to discuss that as well. "I am on vacation until December 27 and can start with Estee Lauder Companies immediately after that."
3.
Teamwork is important to us at Estee Lauder Companies. Why do you consider yourself a team player?
Working well on a team requires you to have solid interpersonal skills and self-awareness. Share a few of your best qualities that make you a team player.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"In my current role, I occasionally need to spend additional time mentoring and coaching new employees to ensure they fit in with the team. This responsibility creates a tighter timeline for other important deadlines; however, I see that the end goal is to create a well-oiled machine and that cannot happen without everyone being equally trained. I would bring this same commitment to team development to this position at Estee Lauder Companies."
Michelle's Answer #2
"I have always considered myself a team player; I enjoy the interactions and positive energy a team environment creates. My favorite team environment was at my last beauty salon. The energy was incredible, and I believe the customers took notice. I hope to create the same environment here at Estee Lauder Companies."
