    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The orgnization of this company makes it a great company to work for.
    As a manager,you able to learn about a lot of the products in the store.
    It's usually a fun enviornment.

    Cons

    Promotions in this company are few and far between.
    Evaluations are once a year and you only get a percentage of what you are currently making. So make sure to ask for a high number when you apply!
    They hire from the outside instead of promoting from the inside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the employees you currently have in your store before hiring someone from the outside as a General Manager who doesn't know anything about Ulta.

    Former Employee - Prestige Consultant  in  Livonia, MI

    I worked at Ulta Beauty part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - good products to work with

    Cons

    - for prestige: may tell you to expect 30 hrs/week, when i quit i was getting less than 5
    - management (not LP) watching you on store cameras, telling you to hound customers in your earpiece
    - all employees have extra cleaning/maintenance tasks that should be contracted out
    - open sales environment means customers don't NEED to be helped, so prestige consultants are often sent home early
    - never more than one prestige consultant scheduled at once, yet expected to handle an entire salesfloor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would be nice if store managers didn't lie during interviews or give overinflated expectations, especially if employees can't also work for a competitor; management needs to be more concerned with advertisement and getting customers into stores rather than watching employees' every move.
