Salon Market Trainer Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Ulta Beauty in August 2010.
Very complicated process. I had a total of 7 interviews between phone interviews and in-persons. I also had a technical interview. The personality test is exhausting and i don't feel it is very accurate. My recruiter was EXCELLENT and the DM and BDM I interviewed with at the time were amazing! It was a long drawn out process and I actually turned down 3 other offers at the time waiting on Ulta. Luckily for me they hired me, if they had not I would have been in trouble.
I should have asked for more money. I started as a salon manager and many stylists in my salon make more than I do. You can probably make more as a stylist too. Ask them to be very specific about advancement opprotunities and time frames. The bonus plan is horrible, so don't let them sell you on that. The benefits package is awesome however, especially for the salon industry. If I had it to do all over again I would have asked for roughly $22/hr. I was able to negotiate $16 but once they get you in, your pay increase is a joke. Even if you score above target on your review. My advice get the money up front, cause you won't see a dime more. Okay maybe a dime every year if you are a really good employee.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Atlanta, GA) in March 2010.
Was referred by an employee. Had 3 phone interviews, one in person, and had to demonstrate proficiency with hair. The job was described to me as a supervisory one with travel, and supervision of salon managers. I was told I would also manage a salon and have to meet a certain dollar average in service sales myself per week. I was told they rarely hold the SMT to this criteria as they travel a lot.
