    Interview

    I applied to this job to work at Ulta beauty store online and I received a call from them within a few weeks. Although I wanted to work for them, I had a sudden priority that came up so I had to decline the offer. I'd love to work at Ulta when the chances arrive again................................................... ........... ....... ................

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Smyrna, GA).

    Interview

    The interview was very straight forward and easy. I dressed the part (as if I am already employed there). The dress code is black and white, by the way. The hiring manager asked about my interests, previous retail sales, why I wanted to work at Ulta, and what position I am interested in the company. Afterwards, the manager walked me around the layout of the store, which I was already familiar with. It helped that I shopped at the store frequently to begin with. Know the products the store sells.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was fairly easy, I spoke to the prestige manager. I was hired very soon after the interview. I had a hard time actually speaking to the manager at the time. They were always struggling to get enough sales associates

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Skokie, IL
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Skokie, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone for an interview and went in a few days later. Had to wait a bit and the manager then took me in the back. The interview was fairly straightforward, a lot of questions focused on customer service. Retail experience is important but not a game changer. Must be comfortable with using and talking about makeup, obviously.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Cherry Hill, NJ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    10 minute interview with store manager in the back room. It was very laid back. They really needed more staff so it wasn't very hard. I got a call to come in about 3 days after I applied and I was offered the job on the spot. I ended up working there for almost two years.
