ULTA Interview Questions & Tips

How to Get a Job at ULTA

Applicants typically submit hiring forms in-person or receive hiring consideration through employee referrals to gain ULTA jobs. The cosmetics company strongly considers applicants who demonstrate technical and customer service skills. Examples of desirable technical skills include inventory, data entry, and, most importantly, makeup application. Customer service skills the interview process screens for include excellent communication abilities and broad knowledge of products and trends in the cosmetics industry. Workers must exude both types of qualities to earn serious consideration for employment during the hiring process. Most applicants receive interview consideration either same-day or a few days following formal submission of necessary hiring materials.

Tips For a Successful Interview

Taking no more than two weeks to complete in most cases, the interview process features standard, 1:1 hiring sessions with existing staff. During interviews, applicants may encounter inquiries regarding job skills as well as personal interests and professional motives. "What is your favorite brand of skincare product?" represents the type of interview questions applicants regularly field. A worker might also respond to, "How have your personal and professional experiences prepared you for work in retail?" and "Which ULTA product do you like the most and why?" Job hopefuls should expand upon answers to interview questions to demonstrate product knowledge and technical skills. Engaging the hiring staff in relevant conversation also shows customer service abilities. Smile often and wear sharp, professional yet dressy, and fashionable clothes to show flair for current trends and personal tastes. Interviews typically last no longer than 20 minutes.
