What I liked
I liked how much effort Ulta put in to not just their interview and selection process, but the entirety of the internship. I truly felt like I was valued as an intern, and my mentors and managers went out of their way to provide me with support, resources, and connections throughout. I felt that my skills and experience were acknowledged and respected, and I was properly challenged in my role based on that. The corporate culture and distribution center culture overlap significantly, and it was a good culture to be a part of in my opinion - they really value people at every level of their business, from consumers to distribution center associates to retail workers to corporate employees, which is refreshing to see. Overall, I learned an insane amount in such a short time, the vast majority of which will be directly applicable to my career in some way or another. I would absolutely make the same decision again if I could!
