    I worked at Sephora full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Passionate people, dedicated to the success of the company, brands and individuals. The clearest pathways to success I've had at any company with a strong focus on career development. Innovative, open to ideas from ANYONE. Great bonus structure. Plus, it's FUN!

    Cons

    This specific position was away from the headquarter office in San Francisco which made the connection a bit harder. Depending on the department, promotions and financial increases can be very slow.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV (US)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sephora (Las Vegas, NV (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Went in for a group interview with 4 other applicants. It felt brief and casual. We all went in order from left to right. She only asked a couple of questions about ourselves and why we see ourselves with sephora. I was surprised how quick it went! After that, I got a call a few days later for a one on one. The lady was nice and she made it seem like I got the job towards the end of the interview. Asked a few questions about me and previous work experiences. In the end, she praised me and said that I'd be the perfect fit, they would be delighted to have me, and I will be expecting a call on this specific day to meet with the District Manager. I was waiting and waiting, never got a call back. I even followed up but I'm left with nothing! It's faulty and unprofessional to inform an applicant that they are the best candidate for the job without making the complete decision.
