How will we welcome you to the Sephora team? With open arms…and an incredible bag of swag. We surprise you with free products throughout the year as well as offer plenty of discounts with our brand partners and within our LVMH family of sister brands. We want you to try them and develop your expertise—for our clients, company, and yourself. Because when Sephora succeeds, we all do. Every employee, in every role and at every level—full- and part-time, seasonal, in stores, corporate, and distribution—are eligible for bonuses for company performance. We have multiple competitive medical plans, benefits for new and expecting parents, and tuition reimbursement. And our community-inspired programs are truly, well, inspiring.



    Thinking about your future? Sephora is. Our fantastic perks for retail associates are industry leading and include paid time off, a 401(k), flexible spending accounts, and, most unique of all, over-the-top training. Think about it: How can Sephora consultants be so super-knowledgeable about all of our products? Through Sephora University you learn the “what” and “why” behind beauty…the basics of makeup application, the best skin care secrets, the difference between a fragrance top note and a base note, and more. We’re unbiased and unmatched in our training—and the learning never stops. Through Sephora 101, Daily Dose training, on-site and online training modules, career-path plans…you’ll become an authority at what you do and grow into what you want to be.


We are on a mission to make Sephora the best place to work. Period. Aside from product discounts, we offer a competitive holiday, vacation, and paid time off program—because a recharged mind is a more innovative one. Our medical plans provide you and your family the coverage and resources to help you lead a balanced life today, and plan for tomorrow. Whether you have an interest in joining our Working Moms’ Group or want to attend our regularly scheduled Red Bag Speaker Series featuring entrepreneurs and inspiring leaders across various industries, we offer many opportunities for you to continue to learn and grow professionally and personally.

We also provide opportunities to learn and engage with our products hands-on, through events like our Play Days and beauty TIP Workshops. As a San Francisco employee, you’re eligible for commuter benefits—and when the workweek draws to a close during June through September, enjoy Summer Fridays in the Bay Area by leaving the office at 1 p.m.


    Constantly improving on ourselves is part of the Sephora culture—as a company, and as individuals. We invest heavily in our employees, because that is where innovation is sparked and experiences are delivered. In fact, we fill a majority of our positions internally. We want to leverage your strengths, cultivate your leadership ability, and help you acquire and build core skills through regularly updated courses. For our FSC employees, we encourage you to devote a full week to your development during Careerfest—a week of events dedicated to learning and growth. Or apply to be on the Innovation Think Tank team and come up with the next big idea through internal hackathon competitions.Our retail associates have the opportunity to train and receive a number of certifications, such as a Custom Makeover Certification; learn advanced artistry as a Senior Artist; or try out for the coveted position of Sephora PRO artist. Because we can train for skill, but not what’s at the core, if you have what it takes to be Sephora—the desire to learn and stretch beyond your comfort level—then you can grow at Sephora.
