Operations Consultant (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 27 April 2017
Sephora puts a lot of time and effort into training. There is a clear path for those wanting to have a career. Training will sometimes include travel and you will be given samples of products to become familiar.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 26 April 2017
It was my second home, I love the people I worked with and I loved the environment, as I was surrounded by makeup. The most enjoyable part of the job was listening to people and suggesting products that would suffice
Makeup artist / Cashier (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 17 April 2017
Enlightening atmosphere with an enjoyable selection of products. The staff were quite responsive when an issue occurred, MOST employees were kind, though the management staff were extremely supportive and taught new employees efficient and effective ways to apply the proper techniques.
Cashier (Current Employee) – London, ON – 1 April 2017
They typically give 9 hours shifts with an hour lunch. overall a great company to work for, the only down side, the hours are not consistent. management is really understanding but their policies are fairly unusual. they are great at keeping their employees up to date with new rules, policies and training
Skin Care Consultant (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 10 March 2017
My particular store is great but management can be a hassle. Since there are so many managers, communication between them is an issue. There are great perks: lots of free products, occasional extra discount, and first pick of product. However, this is still a retail job. Sales is everything and room for growth is limited unless the managers really like you. Sephora is great for getting experience and making money to put you through school but this is not a life long career.
Free lunch, free products, discount
Frequent hour cuts, sales driven, work life balance non-existent
Staff was friendly, some management need to work on their skills better.
Colour Consultant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 February 2017
When you get to work you get a touch base of where you're zoned. Very organized because the days are always busy. Overall most of the management are very nice and welcoming. I've just had issues with how a situation was dealt with. The hardest part of the job would be how busy it is all the time. I love the staff, and customer service aspects of the job.
Color Consultant (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 6 February 2017
Working at Sephora is rewarding due to being able to use your knowledge of the beauty industry and its products in order to assist clients with their needs. It can be difficult to navigate due to working with so many different people and their own unique personalities and temperaments

Seasonal Fragrance Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 January 2017
I enjoyed my time at Sephora so much and I would definitely continue to pursue a career there. Days of work were a little tiring, but still really worth it. I learned a lot about fragrance, makeup and skincare! The management was generally really nice. Hardest part of the job was mean clients and the most enjoyable was my fellow cast-mates!
Skin Care Consultant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 January 2017

Fun work environment, with good benefits and opportunities.
seasonal colour consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 January 2017
Although a fun work environment that was an excellent experience I found that the management did favorite certain individuals because they were friends thus giving them preferred treatment. Although it didn't affect me. I found it unprofessional. Besides that, I had a good experience there and would recommend this job to others.
Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 29 December 2016
As a seasonal worker it was a creative company to work for, but I would only work for Sephora again if I was in corporate or in management. There was a lot of favouritism with the management and that can affect the work life balance.
Skincare Specialist (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 11 December 2016
Very fast paced environment and client inspired. Product knowledge essential to achieving sales targets. Team oriented to reach goals ...no commission. Very structured as to breaks and lunches for optimal sales. Focus for employees is growth within company and creating positions for incentive.
