    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Bolingbrook, IL).

    Interview

    Very rigid, same as the questions at target. Phone screen was basic, one on one was to tell you about job, panel interview was 3 multiple panels. Each member varied in postion and title. You could tell who was higher in rank as they led the questioning and were the ones who would go off script.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2016.

    The interview was a group one , and was very easy and fast . one girl did not show up , in total it was 3 of us . we were all put in a room and she asked about 5 questions . She also explained what the position entailed. Wear all black , because the girls I interviewed with did not dress professionally more like casual . I received an offer the same day of the interview and she stated that the way I dressed was another factor that showed I was prepared . She told us before leaving the interview to give her 5 days for a call back I recieved a call a couple hours after I left the interview !

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I went in to get my hair done, while I was getting my highlights the GM approached the lady doing my hair & I & they began asking if I was interested in a job. I just moved back home so why nottttt, a little extra money can't hurt so I gave it a shot ! She told me to be there the next day at 3 & when I got there it was a group interview. Very fun & enjoyable. The two managers are very sweet :) they asked each of us our name, our favorite makeup brand, & then separated our group in half & had us make a "commercial" or skit on Ulta. We acted them out & then they told us that we would receive a call within the next couple days.. I got a text from my manager the next hour & said I was hired & she can't wait to work with me :)

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online then got a call a week later for a group interview. It was me and 8 other girls interviewing, which I thought was way too large of a group. They only asked us one question each and they were all different questions. They rushed everyone to answer and cut you off while speaking which is very unprofessional in my opinion. 2 days later got called back for a one on one interview. Very snobby manager who mostly talked about herself and how much money she makes.
