    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty (El Paso, TX).

    Interview

    Was simply asked base questions. Interview was don't in a tiny office but the manager at that time created a casual and comfortable environment. The interview was brief, but fairly thorough. The general manager seemed to focus on personality which I think is important in this field.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I just went in and talked to the manager about if she was hiring. She told me to come back for an interview. And in the interview she just had a normal conversation with me and then the prestige manager had a normal conversation and then thwy said they likes me and I'd get the job. Very laid back.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ulta Beauty in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. I received a call within a week and was able to schedule an interview for 2 days later. The interview was very easy and natural. The general manager was very polite, and professional. The questions were what I expected. Why do you want to work for Ulta? What would you bring to the Ulta team? Give an example of when you received outstanding customer service. Give an example where you demonstrated team work/ leadership. I wore black slacks, a black blouse, and a gold and teal statement necklace. I also wore a full face of make up, but kept it neutral and simple. The best advice I can give is be confident, honest, and enthusiastic. I received a call the same day with a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I found the most difficult questions was when the manager asked if I had any questions for her. I think it is important to plan on asking a question or two.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I wish I would have asked for a higher pay to give room for negotiation. Ulta is very reasonable.
