Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty.

Interview

I applied originally for the B.A position, this was 2 months ago, I forgot I applied (lol) and the GM called me yesterday asking to interview today at noon or one. I wore all black (except my leggings had white bow & arrows on them) and some trendy jewelry and did my makeup like I do everyday which is always done up and my hair. The GM offered me a position as Clinique Brand Rep, which I didn't want to do, so I steered more toward the B.A position she also offered. She told me my makeup was amazing, and liked that I had a lot of previous retail experience (if you have any, MENTION IT) I had been a previous Walgreens b.a which surprisingly has a LOT of similarities. Make sure you do your hair and makeup 100 percent, obviously, and be happy & cheerful. Act how you do at work though, don't oversell yourself and say things you won't/can't do. After the interview, she told me she was super interested and would call me by the end of next week to tell me what she needed from me (?) and if she didn't call to call for sure. I'm assuming this means I got the job..but who knows! Also she didn't ask ANY of the questions I read on here? Most were just about my availability ect.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I just went in and talked to the manager about if she was hiring. She told me to come back for an interview. And in the interview she just had a normal conversation with me and then the prestige manager had a normal conversation and then thwy said they likes me and I'd get the job. Very laid back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Cedar Falls, IA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    We had a new store opening in our area so I stalked the listings online. When they were posted, I had to submit my standard application and work experience, plus I had to fill out a long survey online that screened for integrity, honest, work ethic, social skills, etc. Pretty standard in retail. I got a call a couple weeks after applying and was asked to come in and do an in-person interview.
