    Lancôme Counter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Wenatchee, WA).

    Interview

    I applied at Ulta and it took a few weeks for them to give me a call. When I finally had my interview set up, it lasted roughly 13 minutes and immediately wanted to hire me on. They wanted me for a Lancôme counter position and then was scheduled a Facetime interview. I was extremely nervous and interview did not go so well. All the question were all based on asking products and they pretty much want a salesperson which is not my area of expertise. Same day Ulta called me to offer me another position which I preferred and was more excited about.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty in October 2017.

    Interview

    There was a 1/2 day interview scheduled and the recruiter sent email when I was traveling the night before to alert me of changes in times via email giving me no time to adjust my schedule. This lead to an incomplete interview and we both missed an opportunity.

    Hair Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Beach, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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 (Great Falls, MT).

    Interview

    I applied online for a store that hadn't opened yet. After two weeks, received a call from the District Manager and was asked if I could interview that day. Set up appointment for two hours later. Was supposed to interview with the district manager and the general manager of another store. After interviewing with the DM, she told me that it wasn't necessary that I interview with the general manager. That was on Wednesday. On the following Monday I was informally offered the position and received my offer letter on Tuesday. The interview was conversation style in a hotel lobby. Very pleasant, very informative.
