    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty.

    Interview

    I applied as a beauty consultant as I'm a freelance MUA but have minimal "formal" training and wasn't expecting to be thrown on a counter anywhere right off the bat. The Assistant manager called me back pretty quickly and I was in for an interview the next day. She was very easy to talk to, as were the rest of the staff, and offered me a position on the spot. Having a lot of retail experience already and also a decent amount as a makeup artist, I was asking two dollars above the starting pat rate, which she was totally willing to compromise on which was great. I can't say much about the position yet, but the interview process was very casual and comfortable, I ended up accepting this position over one at the Sephora color bar based on the fact that the environment was much more comfortable and less high pressure/pushy about sales, which I appreciate when it's an un commissioned position.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Ulta? Tell me about yourself/ your interest in beauty? What's your availability like/ what kind of hours are you seeking?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you want more pay or more specific scheduling just ask. If you're straight forward about your requests they are much more accommodating and willing to negotiate.

The manager made it very clear that her job was to not work the register, like she seemed above it or something. I was not offered a job, but if I was I would've declined.

    Interview

    Hey! Just wanted to share my experience with the interview and hiring process.
    I applied on Sept. 28th. I was called the 29th to set up an interview for the 1st of October.
    I met with the General Manager and she was hilarious and SOO nice! The interview lasted about 15 minutes all together. Super quick. She basically told me what the job entailed and the dress code, etc. She told me it was black bottom and white/black top AND, get this, you have to wear lipstick. Hello? hahaha. That just seemed odd to me, but I am okay with that! :D Anyway, I got a call on the 2nd (today), and she offered me the position and I accepted. Going to fill out paperwork on the 3rd. It all happened so quick, I was so shocked yet excited and relieved at the same time!

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Fairless Hills, PA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I was very nervous at first because the Store Manager had me do someones make-up. I guess it made sence since I was applying for a job that would require me to know how to do make up. She gave me a few pointers and let me do my thing. I must have done pretty well because I was hired.
