    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ulta Beauty.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a few days later was called in for an interview. When I arrived at the store, I was told you browse through the store until the manager was ready. The interview was a group interview. It was very laid back and conversational. I dressed professionally in a blazer and slacks and all the other girls dressed casual. The two interviewers went around and asked us each the same questions, then we were able to discuss them. I was the only one who got a job offer.

    I applied online – interviewed at Ulta Beauty.

    Interview Details

    Met in the office. Very casual for a job interview. I went in and the total interview lasted less than 20 minutes. She spent more time explaining job duties than verifying if I was a good candidate, but she already had my resume.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ulta Beauty.

    Interview Details

    Very snooth, I wasn't asked very many questions. I think because the other girl that was veing intercuewed with me had just graduated high schook, didn't ecen have any make up knowledge, and wasn't even interested in going to schook for anything to do with beauty so she was asked nire questions. I just graduated college with a Master Cosmetology diploma and they seemed very excited about that, they also said they coyld vump me up to Esthetician or Stylist as soon as I take state board. I have my second interciew with the GM tomorrow so we will see!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied in early December and didn't hear back at all. I called about two weeks ago asking if they were hiring and the women told me they'd be doing a hiring soon. I recently got a call thrusday night asking me to come in for a interview. I came in ten minutes early wearing all black. My interview was in the back office quick and simple. A lot of people have said they had group interviews but mine was just one on one. She asked personality questions and retail experience questions. She said they were looking to cross train people and asked if I was comfortable putting makeup on people. She said they were eager to hire and that id hear from them in the next few days. Hopefully I do!

    I applied online – interviewed at Ulta Beauty.

    Interview Details

    Applied for position and got a call literally within minutes. Had an interview the next day. Pretty pleasant experience. Was hired within a week and started within two. I was never told that I was being hired for Operations until I started training. Also wasnt told that I would have to be available at 5/6 AM for Truck, Ad, or Planograms. Which I later found out wasnt even in my job description. I was actually doing the job of two people. Also found out (after being hired) I was offered almost $4.00 less than the person I was replacing.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ulta Beauty.

    Interview Details

    they were opening a new store in my area, i applied online and received a call the next day. the manager told me to come in for an interview in three days, i wore a dress and heels, something cute and formal, i also wore makeup and big hair, (my usual) i didnt bother pinning my hair up because ulta loves people with vibrant personalities, the interview process was easy, or maybe because it was a new store and they needed lots of people, but it was a few questions about my past work experiences and skills regarding to selling and talking about makeup, im a "people's person" and was doing lots of freelance makeup at the time so i kinda figured i had landed the job, basically be yourself, unless yourself is shy and boring then be happy and open, relax, have knowledge about some products, tell them you use the products even if you dont, you will eventually use them because we always got freebies, and you're great with people*** and selling*** i dont work there anymore because im in college now which is out of state, i didnt bother transferring because i want to focus on school with the help my parents haha GOOD LUCK ( : also i was paid $9 people in prestige were paid $11-13 or higher, i would deff apply there.
