    Average Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation on salary, was offered minimum wage. However, salary was nearly doubled upon my promotion. Once I stepped down I lost $2 of pay, initially it was to be $4 but I was able to negotiate.

    Interview

    Sent in an application online. Got called within a week and went for an interview the next day. Had a great interview and was made to think I got the job. Got called for a second interview and was also made to think I got it. But then when I called back a couple days later, they'd found 2 different people. Was told they'd keep my application and call me later.

    Was offered below minimum wage and was told I would get less than 20 hours a week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Ulta Beauty in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was pretty easy. I had applied online, got a call 2 days later, and an interview the next day. During the interview, I wore all black (because it is their uniform) and "normal" makeup. I spoke with the manager and she was very friendly. We spoke for about 10 minutes and asked mainly about my personal life (school, etc). After we finished, she called her GM and I spoke to her for a bit too. She was really nice and after we spoke, she told me that she will call me for an answer. The next day I received the call to come in for paperwork :)
