Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sephora (Boca Raton, FL) in October 2019.

Interview

I was first contacted over the phone for a quick phone screen. During the phone call, I was asked about my previous job experiences, responsibilities, and why I left my previous job. I was also asked about why I chose Sephora. They then asked me to come in for an interview. When I came in for the in-person interview, I sat and spoke with the manager who asked me typical interview questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sephora (Friendswood, TX) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email 2 weeks later for a job fair that they were hosting. At the fair, each employee took a candidate and did a one-on-one interview, where they asked basic questions (Why do you want to work at Sephora? What were previous job experiences? etc.). The whole process took about 15 minutes at most. A week later, I received a phone call asking me to come in a for another interview, which took place 2 weeks from that call. At the second interview, they grouped us in pairs and each pair was interviewed by a manager where they asked us more challenging questions (What skills from your previous experiences do you think will help contribute to our team? If someone gave you feedback in a rude way, how would you handle it? etc.). A week after the interview, they offered me the position. Overall process from application to offer took a little more than a month.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sephora (Ventura, CA) in November 2018.

    Interview

    My first impression checking in was that i already did not want the job. I walked in the sign the check-in sheet and over heard a current sales associate talking rudly about one of the other applicants. The worst part is she said it into her earpiece so im sure other associates hear the remark as well. It made me feel very comfortable and if though we were all being judged.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sephora.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview and then was offered a group interview. Usually the process also includes a one on one interview but after my group interview I received a call offering me the job so every experience seems to be different as far as how many steps. Group interview was very laid back. Hiring managers gave us a sheet of paper with the questions they’d be asking and gave us time to think about our answers. Anyone was able to answer the questions in no particular order.
