    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Long Beach, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I will preface this description with the fact that I have 17 years of solid experience performing cosmetology services to all genders and ethnicites. I sat and talked to the store manager about the position and the store needs. I let her know that I was available during the busiest times of the day, which were evenings and full availability on weekends. She told me she needed someone who could do ethnic hair. She also said she needed someone who would be tenacious enough to build a clientele. However, I believe she wasn’t truly interested in someone that could do ethnic hair. Ultimately, she told me she could not give me what I needed. Interesting though, all I really needed was a place to work and a platform to build a clientele. So I believe her excuse was a bunch of bull. I felt disrespected when she wouldn’t even call me back to follow up on the interview. I had to call her to get closure. Also, she said that she decided she was not going to hire right now. But her ads are still running on Internet job sites. I expected better from Ulta Beauty.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Denver, CO) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was cool. We clicked over the phone, then I had a working interview (which included a short written test) with a live model. I was supposed to provide my own, but she bailed on me last minute as people often do, so the hiring manager found a friend to come in and sit for me. It was super chill and the manager was really kind and helpful.

    They call you and set up an interview. Then if they like you they set up a technical interview. Look presentable and be confident in your ability to perform the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Dunwoody, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Quick and to the point but not too informative, the skills assessment was fairly easy when I expected it to be more severe but it took awhile to get all of the initial paperwork done due to the salon manager going on travel for 2 weeks

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Denver, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was simple, I had a first interveiw . I wasn't that impressed with their hiring style. Even though i was experienced everyone starts at the same level and you have to build yourself up, which Im totally fine with and expected but the way that Ulta presents their way of doing things isnt appealing to me.
