    Advice to Management

    I personally think that all employees should have the opportunity to be trained and moved up to prestige. Even if they don’t become prestige beauty advisors, I think beauty advisors could contribute to getting people to buy prestige products over mass cosmetics since they can suggest higher end alternatives and have the product knowledge behind it to justify it. I also think that it is overwhelming for 1 person to help customers and make sure everything is up to the standards Ulta sets. It’s understandable to think that each person can clean and help section by section and teamwork could be used between the shifts, but oftentimes you can get caught up helping customers and never getting around to doing the little things that make a huge difference between neat and sloppy.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Manchester, England) in January 2012.


    Very brief but thorough, they interviewer was making lots of questions about my experience & what I liked to do outside of work. I was asked if there was any particular reason for wanting to move jobs at this point in life, I replied that I was looking for a new challenge & that I had wanted to move into another trade as had become bored of what Iwas doing at this time.
