I worked at Sephora full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Hires are generally outgoing hardworking people
Fun company to work for
Beauty perks are a plus
If you treat it as temp work and have no expectations of being hired on full time you'll love it.

Cons

You have to work on all Holidays including Christmas Eve and New Years Eve
Ramp up for Holiday and promotions so be prepared to be let go after the promotion is over.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring so many people on contracts, choose less and choose wisely.

    I worked at Sephora part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of job perks including free product, overall fun work. Excellent training provided, and cash bonuses.

    Cons

    Very strict policies and procedures, little schedule flexibility- work on Holidays. weekends, etc. Difficult to advance quickly or transfer over to corporate side. Can be competitive among employees at times.

    I worked at Sephora full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gratis, overvew brand training. It can be fun to work around so many new products.

    Cons

    The most fundamental problem with Sephora as a whole is that in regard to company policies, there is way too much gray area. There is no black and white. Unfortunately, it just makes for confusion and inconsistency-not the execution of better ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Sephora is a successful company-but has not really come up with the formula for success. Look at your peer companies in the cosmetics world. What are they doing differently?
