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.

    I just went in and talked to the manager about if she was hiring. She told me to come back for an interview.
