    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Sephora in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with the Talent Specialist. She asked random questions (personal and business) to see what our personalities were like. We were able to do the same in return to her. In the end, she told us that there were no positions available in her store until April. There's openings for a new store, and two stores in Timex Square. She said the follow up for a decision will be the next day. I never heard from her, I then decided to reach out to her. She said she contacted me after the interview (however I didn't receive anything) and wanted to move me to the second round, she's looking for a location for me to go to. I never heard back from get.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sephora in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I went to the Sephora in Downtown Brooklyn and asked if they were hiring. They said yes they were and all I have to do is fill in the application online and bring in my resume. I had already filled out the application and asked if I can just hand in my resume today. The manager said no and to come back next week Monday. I came back on Monday, with my makeup done and wearing all black as suggested by the worker. I found the manager and handed in my resume. She took my resume and asked me like two questions. She told me she will hand in my resume to HR and they will email me if I will be interviewed and to come back in a couple of WEEKS for the status of application.I was there for ONLY 5 minutes, if not less. All of this could've been done when I was there before. It was such a waste of my time, waste of my ONLY 5 dollars (to eat) for the week to travel back to that sephora especially in the 7 degree weather!

    Interview Details

    We waited near the cashier which appeared their go to place for interviewees because many staff members walked by and said "good luck!"

    The group interview was really just myself and one other person who was applying for a completely different position. The HR manager asked us to describe ourselves, an adjective that described us and why we wished to work for Sephora. The experience was fun and friendly.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sephora in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call back 2 days later asking for an interview the very next day. I had three one on one interviews over the course of 3 weeks. Never had a group interview like many reviews on here say. The questions were very basic, nothing too hard just a lot of case scenarios. Each interview took up around 45 minutes each.

    Interview Details

    Interview was easy. There was a group interview setting with the assistant store manager. There was a guide that she went by to ask questions. Mostly were related to what would you do in various situations with clients and cast. The same day we interviewed with the store director. All interviews took place outside of the store, due to lack of space backstage. Fortunately it was holiday hiring season and we were hired the same day.
