    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sephora.

    Interview

    I brought my resume to the hiring manager one afternoon. Later that evening I received a call regarding my availability, current employment, and when I could start. Very quick, took much less time than I expected. It is my impression that this is not the norm for the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sephora (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    When I went for my interview, they somehow got the times mixed up, and I wasn’t supped to be there for another hour.
    When I came back I met up with Jodi. We walked down to the cafe and sat down.
    She had me tell her things about myself, what I liked, where I see myself in 5 years, etc .
    She asked about my past employers.
    She offered me a second interview, which I had to do an eye look on someone. They provided the model, the brushes, and of course the makeup.
    Jodi watched and made sure I followed all of the rules with sanitizing.
    Once I was finished she said she would contact me in a couple days to let me know if I got the job

    Thorough, Fast-Paced, and Efficient would be how I would describe the interview process. I had an in person interview with the Store Director and then a phone interview from the Director of another store. I felt comfortable and heard in both interviews and would highly recommend applying to anyone! It was wonderful!
