Okay place to work, but not enough advancement in job.
Back up forklift driver (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTJuly 4, 2014
Pros: every year we have a company party, great co-workers
Cons: not being able to advance
Typical day would start out people would start to pick the items or going into replenishment depending what they needed you for. I have learned certain things in the business such as loading the trucks when needed why it is important for safty in the warehouse also I have worked in almost all of the departments in the warehouse so I have a great knowledge – more... of the the departments. Management has been supportive during my time off for the birth of our child, however there is still the part of favortism in the work place and not getting the oppertunities for advancement. Most of the people I work with are very sincere, kind and willing to help when needed and very supportive. It is a great group of people to work with. The hardest part of the job is staying long hours when needed working multiple days in a row during holiday, and being over looked when trying to advance in the job. I enjoy my co-workers very much everyone is respectful towards each other. – less

Loved being able to try all the new products and recommend them to clients.
Sales (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLJune 25, 2014
Pros: first to try new products
Cons: management skills
I was only seasonal during my time at Sephora so I only experienced a few months with the company. However, with my experience level in makeup and knowledge of product it didn't seem to make a difference to management. I did witness some favoritism but didn't let it affect my work ethic.

Over all I love the company but not fond of the way it was managed.

Make-Up Artist (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 20, 2014
Pros: gratis
Cons: short breaks, minimal growth
This is a great company to work for. You have the opportunity to learn about every aspect of the business from customer service, skincare, makeup, fragrance, etc. Some locations are busier than others, mine in particular was quite busy almost everyday of the week. Therefore everyone was busy multiple client servicing. However most of the coworkers got – more... along and were friendly. The hardest part of the job is the non stop talking and walking back and forth in the store which will leave you beat at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part are the trainings, gratis and work life balance. – less

Hands on experience with providing clients with cosmetic application
Color Consultant (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAMay 29, 2014
Pros: free makeup and working with multiple brands!
Cons: heavy foot traffic while being understaffed
My typical day at Sephora Powell consists of assisting clients on the sales floor with their cosmetic needs. Multitasking/multi-clienting is a HUGE part of the job considering it is located by Union Square of downtown San Francisco. When I'm not circling the sales floor I am engaged in 45 min consultations providing clients with a customized makeover. – more... These consultations are definitely the highlight of my day, where I can use my communication skills and makeup to make someone feel amazing about themselves. – less
