Working at Sephora has had many benefits for me including learning great client service, communication skills and an over all good with ethic. It was a disappointment to leave due to schooling location.
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.
Sephora job is a greta place to begin and get your foot in the door to cosmetics

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.

sephora is a great job if you're young and don't have to pay your own bills and have the time it takes to move up. It does not pay enough to cover living and can be very stressful because of this. The company is also very good at telling you what you want to hear regarding promotions and then making you work hard and demonstrate how badly you want something with no more pay and then no follow through from the company. Favouritism is HUGE, people will get promotions who dont deserve them and vice versa. The training from brands and being sent away for training was really nice and for sure the best part of working there. It really is all about who you work with, my first management team was amazing and then the next was a disaster. Some store directors like to hire externally for promotions which usually causes good staff to leave. The hours are long, there's no consistency in shifts and it is very difficult to have a life around it. Finally, sometimes at Sephora you began to feel like a robot... You're coached on how to speak to clients,how to act.. Etc., The company wants you to be an individual but then makes you wear the same makeup, same lip colour and so on with visits and occasions. I don't know if this is a good thing or bad thing I just know the company started to feel very much not me.
I think if you love makeup and are young this could be either a great foot in the door or you could make a career out of it. I loved the company when I first started and have just unfortunately found that the company doesn't really align with who I am anymore!
Although Sephora is a great environment to work, and place that offers a lot of room to grow, the management is stressful and the salary is not sufficient for the amount of work that they require you to do.

Not a lot career opportunities for employees. Very good training system from different brands. Loving working in the fragrance filled environment, and helping ladies to be more beautiful and confident.
SALES ASSOCIATE AND CASHIER (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 17 August 2016
A typical day at work is long fast pace environment with a lot of repetition even though it is asked for no repetition but being a cashier it can not be avoided. I have learned that making the client happy makes a really big difference and clients are more willing to come back to have the same experience. Management and co-workers where okay at times but sometimes co-workers made you feel less than them by making remarks at your makeup. Hardest part of the job is standing up for long hours and repetition should be avoided but it can not. The most enjoyable part of the job was trying new styles of makeup and pushing your self to work on your skills outside of the box.
