Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sephora (Denver, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I went on my 1st group interview today, I wasn't to scared, however my interviewer was a bit shakey. It was 2 other ladies and it was more of a conversation then a interview which made me relax EVEN MORE!. They're looking for someone that want a career and not just a job. Over all it was great and I feel pretty good about what's next. Have my fingers crossed that I get the job.

    Interview

    I wasn't looking for a job I walked in and the manager came over to help me. We began to talk and she then offered me a sit down with her. When I met with her a few days later she told me she liked me and that she normally doesn't do this but she wanted to offer me the position without an interview. I accepted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sephora (Pasadena, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from an Assistant Manager who did a short phone interview with me. She asked basic questions about my interests in the company, industry, and position. She also asked about my skills and experience, and how they pertain to the position. I was then called in for a group interview with the Store Director and/or Assistant Manager. The interview was a little more in-depth regarding interests with the company and beauty industry. Once hired, group orientation was 3 days and then we trained on the floor.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sephora (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I made it to the second interview. The first interview was a group interview and we all stood in a circle and were asked questions. We each answered our question one by one. You had to stand out with your answers. I got called back for a second interview. That was one on one. Asked more detailed questions. They ended up just transferring someone from another Sephora for the job.

    Simple questions like all other jobs ask. We were all sent to the break room and asked questions in a group and then we were given a tour. I was called back about 2 days after the interview, but that might depend on how urgent the job is.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sephora (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2015.

    Interview

    So far have been to 3 interviews including a group and a makeup demo. I was told I would be called in for another interview and it would be the final one. I haven't yet received that information. However I was told that I cannot be a beauty advisor until I get trained by Sephora and no training can be done until after the holidays.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sephora.

    Interview

    After coming into the store and speaking with an associate, I was encouraged to apply. After sending my application, I was contacted the next day and we scheduled an interview. I met two members of the Sephora team at a nearby cafe lobby and they interviewed me over coffee. One was a manager I had met in-store, and the other was one that I had not met. It was just the three of us- this surprised me because everything I had seen online pointed to group interviews.
