Seasonal Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sephora.

Interview Details

3-interviews were required. The first was a group interview (talk more about your love for skincare rather than just makeup. That's the key to impressing managers wear makeup and wear all-black), the second interview was with the store manager and the third is the hardest: you have to role-play situations with chosen employees who pretend to be clients.

Interview Questions

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sephora in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone asking for me to do a group interview. The group interview was casual but dressy casual. Questions were fairly easy. Know a little history about Sephora, how you would react if you saw someone stealing, what store do you remember getting great customer service at and why, past job history, availability, why do you want to work for Sephora. There weren't any trick questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unexpected. A lot of Googling gave back helpful information on the interview process.   Answer Question

    As a seasonal hire, we were told in the interview how much they were offering. You either accepted or declined.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sephora in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    1st interview is a group interview, only 3 girls, and 3 managers. the management team had a good rapport with each other so that eased a few nerves. other than that the questions where pretty standard. they spend equal time asking each questions. and you get a call back to have a one-on-one with the store manager. seasonal is how they hire on staff, they have to try you out first before you become a full time cast member.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Sephora in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had applied online for the seasonal position and gotten a phone call about 1-2 weeks later asking to meet for an interview. The interview was relatively easy. The interviewer asked questions along the lines of, why you want to work for sephora? What makes you a great candidate for this position? and many other similar questions.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Sephora.

    Interview Details

    I walked in to physically turn in my resume and cover letter to the manager.
    That same week I got called into for a group interview.
    We were all asked the same questions and were asked to find a product that we could try to demonstrate to a client. (Never say customer) Essentially they want to see how you can present a product and how believable you are.
    I was also given a call for a phone interview.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sephora in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I originally saw that Sephora was having an open hiring event at the local mall. I went and had a group interview there. It was me and another girl. It was very natural and laidback kind of interview. They were having interviews all day. A few days later they emailed me regarding a second interview with the store manager. Then I received an email saying that they were offering me the position.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Sephora in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Sephora does all their yearly hiring fro the seasonal help they hire for the holidays. They train and then keep they worthy seasonal help, and everyone begins at cashier. My interview was a group and very fun, as the management was open and encouraging with role play and lots of questions. It was boring, and they didn't have the spirit of contention in the room, it was easy for a seasoned sales woman, like myself to shine.
