    I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The employees are great, none are catty. Management is very flexible and friendly. If you love beauty, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    They require you to do a lot of work, but with little pay. I find myself doing three different jobs, yet getting the salary for only one. Sometimes your hard work can go un-noticed. Long hours on feet.

    Pros

    Great hours you will get hours ! A Lot of call in so more hours for you . 25% discount off anything

    Cons

    You have to push Ulta reward cards, even to grumpy customers. If you have lip stick/gloss make-up MAKE sure you get it checked off by a manager. Even if you didn't buy it from Ulta they Will think you stole it. A lot of standing and if you work 5/6 hours no Breaks ! It sucks

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty

    Pros

    "I'm a huge fan of this store. I reside in the Bronx and was ecstatic to see a Ulta at the new bay plaza mall. They have all my beauty needs. I also want to highlight the customer service you receive at ulta. Very polite and very helpful. Especially the cashier Tabitha. I usually don't see to many upbeat, charismatic associates but Tabitha was great. I can't wait to come back! Thank you.

    Cons

    More upbeat music , seemed a bit slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work bay plaza

    Work and home life balance can be difficult at times. Company doesn't fund enough payroll to complete the expectations for customer service and operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people that are at store level and don't make your store employees work on holidays that corporate takes off ( thanksgiving and easter.)
