Prestige Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Viera, FL

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Viera, FL) in February 2017.

Interview

I have over 10+yrs experience in retail beauty and 7+yrs in Beauty Management​
So even though I haven't been on an interview in a very long time I was pretty sure of myself! The Interview... When I entered the store no one greeted me, I had to find someone to ask where to go (already thought to myself if I get the job that's the first thing that will be addressed)! Next I found out the Store Manager was running late... So I did a walk thru in the makeup department and again no one greeted me... Instead customers asked me for help and within that 15min window I matched a woman in foundation, recommend the correct eye cream from another woman, and helped the last lady find the perfect mascara! I just couldn't believe no one was helping them!! The store manager did see that luckily and thanked me!! During the Interview the questions were pretty basic and I answered them perfectly ( well thought I did)!! When it was over she said it will take a week to hear back if I passed to get a second interview.... But never got a call and to be honest I don't understand why!?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty in March 2015.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with associate manager, SM, and a manager of another store. I interviewed with the Associate Manager first and it was great. She was really friendly, it was more of a conversation than anything. We set up an interview with the SM, which also went well. She was really business focused and a little distracted, however, the experience was positive. I was told they were looking to hire pretty soon and I would know by the following week. I waited for a call, and I got one to meet with an SM at another store. I was unable to meet the first day she suggested, however, I offered 3 different options for dates. I never got a call back. I followed up 3 separate times, leaving messages and unable to get in touch with the management to follow up, or schedule that last meeting. It was extremely unprofessional and makes me very uncomfortable as someone who takes care of hiring and onboarding with another company. I can't imagine just not getting back in touch with someone who's tried vigorously to follow up.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Rogers, AR) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for Prestige Manager position on a Friday and I called the store on Sunday to speak with the manager. He told me he would call me within the next day or two to set up an interview. I was not local so when he called, he set up my interview with my local Ulta store manager. She reached out to me and we set something up for 2 days later. When I arrived, there was a short wait because the store was busy. We met in her office and she turned off her phone and walkie to give me her full attention. I brought a copy of my resume and she started by asking me to tell her a little about myself and why I wanted to work for Ulta. We then moved to some tough situation questions. Then she told me about Ulta and about the position I was applying for. She was very nice and professional. She told me a little about her store but since I wasn't actually applying for that store, we didn't spend a lot of time on that. At the end of the interview, I asked for feedback which she seemed like she was more than happy to give. She said that I answered the questions well and that my comfort and conversation style was on point, but that I should practice on answering the questions with a bit more detail. I need to speak more towards my leadership roles since it was a management position. She told me that she was going to pass me onto the next interview and forward the results of the interview onto the store manager where I was applying. The next step would be to interview with the District Manager.
