    Business Outlook


    Working at Sephora for 16 years, I've always felt valued by everyone who works here. Team environment, values driven, work/life balance, DEI, innovative and many more reasons I appreciate working here. Sephora continues to grow and add more jobs to the organization. I couldn't be any happier in my role and highly recommend.


    If you're not used to a fast paced environment, it can feel challenging at times. It's all about time management and collaboration with your supervisor.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Sephora (San Antonio, TX)


      Fairly easy if you are passionate about the beauty industry and have worked retail before. Two upper management employees took me outside somewhere quiet and asked me questions, letting me ask questions back and exchange stories.

      How do you handle stressful situations?
