I applied online - interviewed at Ulta Beauty in November 2013.

Interview Details – I was hired during holiday season, so that may have contributed to the hiring process feeling so easy - very relaxed and casual.

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online - interviewed at Ulta Beauty in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online for a cashier position. During the application process I had to take a behavioral assessment test which consisted of real life scenarios that could possibly occur on the job. After passing the assessment test I was called for an interview. The interview was a group interview along with other candidates and took place in the salon area. The manager was very nice and enthusiastic and asked each one of us a series of questions regarding our background. Out of the 5 people who interviewed only 2 people made the team, myself included.

Interview Question – The questions were not difficult. They were primarily based upon each individual's background.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no room for negotiation. The pay was a flat rate.
