    The interview was very laid back and easy. The questions they asked were based mainly on customer service and how well you work with co-workers. This is a very easy interview to get through just be confident and you will be fine.

    Just be yourself show that you are excited to be there and dress like you belong. I believe the dress code is all black. It helps to look trendy but classy it shows that you're current and you on top of the latest trends. Also, make sure you wear makeup if you are skilled at doing makeup show it but make sure its not over done. A nice smokey eye is fine.

    Project Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Everyone was very warm and friendly. They all seemed dedicated to their jobs and continuous improvement. Interview was approximately 4 hours - with several people who would be affected by the position. Even though it was great to get to meet the people I would be working with, I do wonder if it would be better to not interview with quite so many people. It was a bit of a marathon.

    Benefit Arch Expert Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooksville, FL

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was sent an invite from the GM to apply for a new store opening. Thought I'd check it out since I'm a licensed Full Specialist. The GM was quick to see me for an interview (within a day of applying) and everything seemed to be great. It took no more than 15 minutes and she didn't have too many questions for me. She then told me that we would proceed with a technical interview and needed to schedule it with the GM at another location about an hour away. I had to provide my own model for the interview as well. It took 5 days for them to call me with the time of the interview, found out the day before. It was really unprofessional to leave not only myself but my model who is busy running her own business for 5 days without returning my calls with a time. I arrived early with my model for my technical interview. I was given no information so I didn't know what to expect when I arrived. They were not prepared at all. The wax was off, all of their supplies needed to be stocked and the tools needed to be cleaned and sanitized. The GM of the store I had applied for did not come to see my technical. The GM of the location I was sent to did my technical instead. She didn't show me where all the supplies were so I could stock their area to work, was very distracted the entire time and hardly said two words to me. She constantly walked off, would have other people come watch me or would be too busy having personal conversations with her staff. By the time I was done with my model she didn't even come close to inspect the job I had done, just said "ok thanks". My model was offended at how unprofessional the entire thing was. Finally took another week for the GM of the location I applied at to return my call to let me know that they filled the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ulta Beauty in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, then went in about a week later to check up on the application, was told it would be about a week before they got through the applications - called about a week later and was told that they still had not been looked through, but then was called probably 20 minutes after that phone call by the same manager asking me what time I would be able to interview. Went in for interview about a week after that. Interview was pretty basic, why would you like to work at ulta, what are your strengths and weaknesses, etc. Was called a few days later and offered the job.

    No negotiation, if you are getting a job here around the holidays, expect low pay for a good amount of work, but overall a good job with great management and a friendly work environment.
