I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Ulta Beauty in September 2013.

Interview Details – Got back to me within' a few days. My interview went very smooth, she was very enthusiastic and nice. Which is so comforting walking in to this kind of trade. She was very helpful and showed me a lot of the store and where everything was located. Met with General manager and supervisor. Informal interview, but make sure to dress very professional. Also wear make up and style your hair as well.

Prestige Consultant Interview

Prestige Consultant
Arlington, TX

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Ulta Beauty in February 2012.

Interview Details – It was great. Loved my manager that hired me, but she was run off shortly after as most quality employees are. It was professionally conducted, but she was friendly and mostly seemed to want to gage my personality to see if I would be right for the job at hand. There was another gal there too (group interview.) There are often group interviews because they turnover is very high.

Interview Question – none, it was a breeze   Answer Question
