    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Muncy, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Muncy, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Slow. I received a phone call, interviewed and have not heard back since. I now notice they have the managers position open. You send your resume and cover letter to corporate so why doesn't corporate respond with some type of email correspondence?

    Interview Questions

    • Ridiculous questions. I'm not surprised the management position is now open!   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (West Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview(probably because it was a new store opening). Very standard interview questions nothing too difficult. Basically, promise to show up on time and not skip shifts. Be warned, they might promise you full time, lots of hours, chances to move up etc. don't be fooled! It's a good job if you want to work 4hrs a week.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Comstock Park, MI).

    Interview

    I was contacted and pulled into an interview with another girl and she then said
    "We have one position in the job you want and one in another, who's gonna get what?"
    Absolutely hated it, the girl and I felt very uncomfortable and turns out she hired us both!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Roseville, CA).

    Interview

    I had to do 3 interviews and talent plus before i was hired. The questions were easy, mostly about what should be done in certain situations with customers. Talent plus seems to be hard for a lot of applicants but it is just an online personality test. I found it fairly easy

    Interview

    The interview process wasn't bad at all. I got a call from the manager to set up an interview. 2 Days later she called me offering the position! Overall, it was a normal interview.

    Easy process. I was called a few weeks after submitting an application online to interview.

    Guest Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty in February 2017.

    Interview

    Came in and one of the managers took me to the back office. She told me to tell her a little about myself. Then she asked me to give her an example of I time I had to use teamwork to finish a project at work. After that the interview was over. She seemed pretty uninterested in what I was saying and the minute the interview started I could tell she wasn't going to hire me. It was a complete waste of time.

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I am currently in the process. I have had one interview so far and have another one scheduled. I was surprised to learn that I will have to go through three interviews as well pass an online personality assessment (talent plus) before being hired. I am interviewing for a 15 hour a week position. The first interview didn't seem particularly hardy but I assume they will get more difficult as they go on. Seems quite excessive for such a part time
    Job selling cosmetics.
