    Interview

    Went to a job fair, filled out the application then spoke with two different managers. They weren't asking the all the girls there similar questions, wasn't a formal interview. They both seemed to like that I had some retail experience but one was worried how I would deal with retail hours since my last job was an office job. After speaking with the store manager, she said they would be calling be people within the next two weeks to set up interviews. I got a letter in the mail about 3 weeks later saying they went with a candidate whose qualifications fit the position better.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Sephora.

    Interview

    I filled/turned in my application to the manager, who seemed very interested. She asked me a couple of questions; why I wanted to work there and what my availability was. Then she told me that she was going to call all the candidates the following week because she was going to do group interviews. Sadly, I never got a call. :(

    Interview

    The interview process was lengthy. I probably had I believe 3 or 4 interviews. I also was not in a group interview. I thought the questions were pretty straight forward and easy to answer, especially if you've had retail/LP experience.

    Interview Questions

    • In my interview we talked a bit about loss prevention. I knew it would be a question but we spent a bit of time on it. I wouldn't say it was difficult, but LP is a big deal.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had interviewed months in advance and was not chosen for the position due to another job. I had went back and they hired me on as seasonal. There really was not much negotiation since I knew Sephora is exactly where I wanted to be.

    Interview

    I mean, it was an alright interview but the manager will tell you right away how many hours you should expect. They guarantee 4 hours a week but no more than that. So if you're okay with barely working, this might be for you.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell us about your previous work experience. There really weren't any tough questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    It was a bout two weeks long after my initial interview.. This was just a prelude to some of the lack of professionalism to come.

    Interview

    The interview was very informative towards the job. They put you in scenarios and actually coach you through the proper response instead of leaving you to wonder if you did a good job. The interview process did not take long at all and I was able to leave with a satisfactory amount of information concerning hours, pay, and procedures.
