    I have been working at Sephora full-time (more than a year)


    People oriented, values its cast members and leadership teams, gives employees a voice and always takes feedback for improvement, innovative, FUN!


    It's retail, and retail is not for everyone, but it is for me! Can you take a vacation once BlackbFriday hits through January? Of course not. It's retail, and that's the name of the game. But you will have FUN!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work at being inventive and innovative. EDU position is complex! Consider an EDU Specialist in all doors, to handle brand management, Onboarding, Welcome to Sephora, Sephora 101 and 201. Also, an EDU Lead to handle Training in box, DD management, non-video DD. This would allow for better training of cast, would impact a lower turnover rate, and would help in building a strong bench in all doors. In regards to technology, download the Color IQ and Skin IQ apps into the IPads in the store, as well as add Color IQ as an option in Fragrance and Skin IQ to allow quicker access to cast members.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sephora.

    Interview Details

    I got a call back about 3 days after applying. I was interviewed with a group of seven other girls, and then after they called back for a second interview. The second interview was another group interview, and after they said they'd call about setting up a day to start working. Never got a call. Very casual interview, but make sure to dress nicely and of course do your makeup extra good. Every girl there, except for myself, was wearing black, so maybe that's like a Sephora interview secret that I didn't know about!
