  1. Skincare Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sephora (United States)

    Interview

    I submitted a resume/cover letter via their website and was promptly contacted for an interview for a part-time position around the holidays. I met with a total of 3 employees who had very different personalities, but it was a good variety of questions. They wanted to know a lot about who you are as an individual (where do you shop, what brands do you like, what are your hobbies, etc) The third round was then about how you handle conflict.
    Interview

    "Do you shop mainly online or in store?" "How do you handle an irate customer?" "What are your hobbies?"
