It's a great place to work overall. It really depends on the location tho. The store I'm at now is pretty catty but my previous stores were much More of a family vibe. Theres also a lot of politics. They have great healthcare and you get lots of gratis and training.

    I think they're flexible with you only if you've been there awhile. It really depends on the individual store.

Not surprisingly at a beauty company, you are expected to glam up and not conforming to these beauty stanards may hurt your social credit within the org - this is especially true in merchandising.

It may seem like a glamourous place to work, but do your homework. Talk to lots of people, and not just the ones that have only one perspective.

    For a mostly female company, it's embarrassing to have such poor maternity leave policies.

Most of these locations are run by women against women. This is a review of Sephora's inside JC Penney

The working structure at Sephora in sales is a nightmare. In my experience of working there for a summer the managers tend to have favorites. May it be the manager themselves for ruining the Sephora reputation, but even so the experience should not be discounted. Because the team is mostly women for some reason working there feels like working with your high school classmates (rumors, trash-talking behind someone's back, etc). There is no UNITY or EMPOWERMENT. Isn't that the point of Sephora? Sephora's catering to the self-esteem yet their employees are not given a system where they can do that with each other. Given that employees are only paid hourly and not competitively, bashing each other directly or indirectly is quite prevalent.
