Pros

Working at Sephora, you will learn something new everyday. You cannot get bored with your work, as it is ever changing. The company is an industry leader in a thriving industry, creating a strong sense of Job security. As an employee on any level, your personal, and professional development are important to the leadership above you. Most importantly, the values-based foundation the company exists on keeps the company from ever straying away from what is most important; always doing whats best for both its external, and internal client.

Cons

Because of the strong work ethic and dedication it takes to succeed in this fast paced, ever-changing environment, you can lose sight of your work/life balance fairly easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sephora needs a development program and to encourage/incent all levels of management to develop their direct reports. There's not enough internal promotion.

    Pros

    Fairly decent pay for non management positions especially if you have experience
    Lots of gratis from different brands

    Cons

    HOURS! If the store doesn't make budget then hours get cut. If you have monthly bills and need steady hours then this may be a problem. One week working 35 hours and the next barely 20 causes a lot of stress on cast members. Also Store Director spends more time backstage and in "one on one's" and meetings than they do on stage. Leads delegate and watch your every move but don't have to help customers when they are DIC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have SD and Leads pitch in and lend a helping hand. It sucks to hear in the headset how much money they need you to make in a certain amount of time when they are not doing anything to help.
    Also hire LP for stores who need it, cast members shouldn't have to play police when they have to make money too.
