    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sephora (Paramus, NJ) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview of 4 of us and one manager was asking the questions while several others observed/took notes/etc. It was very conversational and not interrogative. She asked about life experiences, not even retail-related, that led you to the brand identity of Sephora which is heavily based on client service. Then, I was selected along with another girl for a one on one interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sephora in October 2014.

    Interview

    I got called in for an interview, there was two management ladies working with me. They gave me 5-15 minutes (depending on how much I needed) to look around the store and be familiar with where stuff is and the products they had. I had to act as if I worked there and they came in the store looking for a gift for their daughter as a scenario. I helped them find what they wanted and then they told me all the good things I did and some things I could do next time. One of the managers said she would be hiring me and just to wait for a call, she told me what my pay would be and everything. Took less than a week.

    Negotiation

    They are looking for someone who is not quiet or shy, someone friendly and engaging with their clients.
