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

      Pros

      You get tons of free products to try and give your honest opinion to customers. My coworkers are very uplifting and want everyone to be confident in what they’re doing instead of like working at other places where people are always putting you down. You do get to play with makeup and really feel like you’re making a difference, educating customers on what’s best for them and how to use products! At least I feel that way....

      Cons

      Sometimes keeping up with making sure all of the tiny products and multiple shelves are dusted and kept clean can be difficult, but if that’s all I have to worry about then I’m not complaining. Also, my Sephora in JCP just stopped doing the custom makeovers, which I would’ve loved to have done! We just do the minis now.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing! I love Sephora even more now that I work for them. I just wish I could do custom makeovers for people.

      I worked at Sephora full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Honestly some of the most incredible, passionate people I've ever worked with. While I can't say that there is strong, capable leaders across the board, I was lucky enough to work with some of the best in the company. I learned so much and am always grateful for my time at Sephora. I was able to hold many different roles within the company and felt supported in my career goals and aspirations. Great benefits....

      Cons

      There's a terrible pattern of behavior where people were promoted in order to retain them --- but they really aren't qualified for the elevated role or scope. Org design is not very thoughtful even though the head of HR supposedly has a background in it. There are SO many VP's who should not be VP's... But in my entire career at Sephora, I'd say there's always been an issue with internal systems and support. I did...

      Advice to Management

      1) Rip off the band-aid and say goodbye to toxic leaders. 2) Continue to champion employees and give opportunities to grow through side hustles, educational rotations, trips, etc. That's how you retain talent -- not just by promoting them.
