    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ulta Beauty in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screening type interview first, then the real one. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and the general manager from another store sat in on the interview. I was basically asked the typical scenario and how did I handle it type of questions. Overall the interview went good and she said she'd let me know after she interviews a few more people.

    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.
