Beauty Consultant Interview

Beauty Consultant
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Ulta Beauty in October 2012.

Interview Details – Hey! Just wanted to share my experience with the interview and hiring process.
I applied on Sept. 28th. I was called the 29th to set up an interview for the 1st of October.
I met with the General Manager and she was hilarious and SOO nice! The interview lasted about 15 minutes all together. Super quick. She basically told me what the job entailed and the dress code, etc. She told me it was black bottom and white/black top AND, get this, you have to wear lipstick. Hello? hahaha. That just seemed odd to me, but I am okay with that! :D Anyway, I got a call on the 2nd (today), and she offered me the position and I accepted. Going to fill out paperwork on the 3rd. It all happened so quick, I was so shocked yet excited and relieved at the same time!

Beauty Consultant Interview

Beauty Consultant
Fairless Hills, PA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Ulta Beauty in December 2009.

Interview Details – I was very nervous at first because the Store Manager had me do someones make-up. I guess it made sence since I was applying for a job that would require me to know how to do make up. She gave me a few pointers and let me do my thing. I must have done pretty well because I was hired.
