    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty (Rego Park, NY) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The people there are very nice and very professional. They greeted me with a smile which made me feel even better/comfortable, (this was my first interview ever). It was hard for me to really let my personality shine through because she talked a lot and my head would go blank as soon as she asked a question. But it was overall a great experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Ulta Beauty (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I filled out an online application at 1 A.M. and got a call the next afternoon to set up an interview. It was a group interview.General Manager conducted interview and Presige Manager sat in and had a mini interview after.A lot of questions about examples of bad and good customer service. Received a call before noon from the manager a few days later (I missed the call) called him back around 2P.M. and was told he left for the day. I called him back early afternoon the next day and was treated rudely.He said he had called to offer me a position,but he couldn't talk now and I had to wait for him to call (sounded so sarcastic but I don't know the guy) I tried to find out when he was going to call and he said oh maybe next week....never heard back.Don't really want to work for an unprofessional, overly emotional person. The Prestige Manager was professional and really nice. The rest of the staff seemed nice too. Seems like a fun environment to work in...normally. Also since its not in a mall there is plenty of parking and easy access for employees. Hint dress code is all black -you can have a white tank peeking out.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ulta Beauty (Dallas, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    First interview was a group interview. Questions were basic: why do you want to work here, tell us about any relevant experience, etc. Second interview was between myself, a supervisor, and a manager. Basically the same questions but a little more detailed.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't difficult for me, but one of the questions could be difficult for someone with little or no job experience: "Tell us about a time you had to appease a difficult customer."   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty in October 2011.

    Interview

    Most of the process is done online or over the phone. The initial application process and personality questionnaire are huge as to whether or not you make it further. The questions are confusing for a reason and their metrics are specific to a type of person they are looking for. After that, its a phone interview. Mostly to weed out the less desirable. If you make it through all that you get a in-person. Thats when you know. Standard forms and employment on-boarding after that assuming you get the nod.

    Interview Questions

    • how long do you think it will take you to master the position?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not really any negotiation.

    Interview

    I received a call from the hiring manager; she asked me a few questions over the phone before setting up a first interview. First interview was very straightforward with situational questions. About a week later I received a call for a second interview. After that interview was such a success, I was surprised when I didnt hear back from them within the timeframe they had given me. I called and spoke to the hiring manager just to see if the position was still avaliable. She assured me that the decision had still not been made and if I was chosen, I would be phoned within the next few days. Thankfully, I was offered a job a few days later.
