I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sephora in September 2013.

Interview Details Applied online a month before receiving a call. Had the interview on a Wednesday which took about 30 mintues was super friendly. Received phone call the following week on a Friday as she said she would either way if hired or not. Offered me a core position and congratulated me on being hired cause of course I took the offer.

Interview Question – What can bring to Sephora?
What would you do if you had a issue with a fellow employee?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was about money, it is negotiable especially if you have previous retail and or in cosmetic industry. I got a tad under what I asked but well over the normal.

Color Consultant Interview

Color Consultant
Buford, GA (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sephora in May 2013.

Interview Details Before I applied, I'd visit the store often and became quite friendly with one cast member in particular. I then came in and spoke directly to the manager, who told me they needed people. I took an application and turned it in the next day (I didn't want to look desperate by turning it in there and then). I was called for a one on one interview a week later with the manager and then a makeup trial on a model a few days later. Once they checked out my references, I was offered a job about 2 weeks later.

Color Consultant Interview

Color Consultant
Aurora, CO (US)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Sephora in November 2012.

Interview Details It was very quick as I was hired on as a last minute Holiday worker. Brought my application, resume, and hand written cover letter and received a call less than a week later to come in the next day for an interview. The hiring manager and another lead interviewed me briefly (about 45 minutes) and offered me the position and I accepted. I came in the next day to shadow a manager for 5 hours, that was about it for my training.

Negotiation Details – They offered me the position of Color Consultant for $10.00 an hour and I accepted.
