    I worked at Sephora part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Environment
    Great Training Program
    Professional
    As a seasonal employee, I was given the exact same treatment and benefits at Sephora
    Decent Discount

    Cons

    As a seasonal employee, I had to work holidays, but that was expected.
    If you are hired as a seasonal cashier, that is just what you will be, a cashier. However, whenever I was interested in some other aspect of the job, I was taught the basics.
