    I have been working at Sephora full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great access to cosmetics and other luxury products at discounted staff price. Good opportunity to grow and move within the company when showing the right skills. I love the samples, I can take them weekly. Amazing customers.

    Cons

    I didn't receive specific training for the role. Most of it involved face to face and communication skills. I was put on certain targets that I had to hit. The reason I got really good was because of a past work experience and training with Mr Boyd Parker focusing the team work and customer facing skills. Once I showed the same results with Sephora, I was then given more credit.

    I worked at Sephora part-time

    Pros

    Every month you can get a bag full of free makeup, after you do your training which takes a long time. Some people are nice, some people you work with are a pain. The only positive I had was getting the free makeup products to try out.

    Just the usually, dealing with customers and some annoying people that you work with.
