    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    Interview

    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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ulta Beauty (Kissimmee, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was a really easy interview. I had a group interview with Shanna and I love that the interview didn't feel intimidating or competitive. It felt more like a conversation than questions. I love that she was personable. The interview was only 30 minutes, which only had about two questions for us to answer(She was short on time). She explained the company and how things worked.

    I had only one interview and then a call with a job offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty (Mansfield, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Arrived there in the store 10 mins before where I then started my one-on-one interview. Everyone working there thought I was a professional makeup artist who went to school because of how great i did my makeup, when I am self taught. I met with the operations manager. Everything went well but she said that the only position available was task/cashier part time, when I originally applied for Prestige beauty consultant full time. I don't know why its on the website then?!! But she really liked me and said she would call me in a couple of days.

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

    Interview

    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!
