Turnover rate is beginning to climb and I understand why. You will most likely outgrow your position and begin to look elsewhere for advancement. Sephora has promised year after year to develop their LP department however nothing has changed.DO NOT EXPECT TO BE PROMOTED. Not only are there few positions available within this department, Sephora tends to hire externally without offering positions to their own employees deserving promotions. Director is a joke, Almost all leaders lack experience.
I felt that management at my location treated cast members too much like they were beneath them. If they had taken more of a same level teamwork approach, it would have made for a much better work environment. I think that the store director should also hold their leads to the same standards that they expect their cast members to have.
Sephora is a great company which is why I've spent 8 years here starting from Desktop Support all the way to both Platform Engineering, and Client Engineering teams respectively (if it exists at Sephora; I've either looked at it, fixed it, or built it). I don't fault anyone in the company, and don't really have anything negative to say about the company.
If I am being honest, I've been at Sephora for 8 years, and I've grown bored and a little burned out, and would like to work for a company that is more technical in nature, and not retail. I would recommend Sephora to other people as it is a strong company to work for; it is just time for me to move on to grow as an engineer and as an individual.
