Lead Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Birmingham, AL

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sephora.

Interview Details

The interview process was average. I was not asked any questions that I can even remember as standing out.

Interview Questions
  • I can't remember, but the Store Director interviewed me. Very average questions. Sephora's policy is that you are flawed anyway and that they need to fix you so that you can do your job better-so unless you bomb, they will accept a few less than perfect responses just as a personal weakness.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
Not really too much negotiation, but your bonus potential should not be a factor in determining how much money you will make-the bonuses are not guaranteed.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Sephora in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was an internal promotion interview. The position was available for a lead role. I was made aware by my store director. Internally there was some prepping that was done. My store director wanted to make sure I was set up for success. She told me specifics on what types of things that may be asked in my interview and even walked through some questions with me. Had to phone interview with DM and SD from the location. Very business driven questions on how to grow, specific challenges I would encounter, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me how your peers would receive you as a leader?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you had to use managerial courage?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate for what I needed. It was challenging but as a leader I feel that you have more ground to stand on with factual PROOF that you are worth it( past achievements, sales) For advice on someone that is considering an offer? You are already one step ahead if you have discovered this site. Do your research and find out what the industry pays.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Sephora in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a new store opening. Met at Starbucks for the initial, and second interview - both with Store Directors. Both interviews were very general - no "form" questions and thankfully, no "tell me about a time..." questions. I felt good after both interviews, but unfortunately no offer.
