    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.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    25% product discout, 50% salon services.

    Good consistant sales on pro hair product, awesome new reward system.

    We get to play with fun products, and get pretty good trainings on them. Gratis is given from vendors.

    Encouraged to have fun on the sales floor, and to be honest.

    Awesome communication.

    Cons

    Company reaching out too far, can't staff or pay stores they already have.

    Selling over-hyped priced-up junk from China. Home Ulta brand is very cheap.

    Too many coupons, and too many people who don't bother to read the fine print. I think if one were to make the coupons quarterly and to be used on everything, people would be more happy.

    Too many salon "deals," which are confusing, and they are only for new clients. I think current clients deserve a treat!

    Management has a tendancy to guilt trip those recieving gratis like it's theft and that we don't deserve it. I also hate having my bag checked in front of all my clients. I'd rather have it done in the back in private.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop opening new stores and focus on the ones that are in exsistance. Stop buying and marketing garbage from China and focus on quality. Cut back on the coupons. Omit the Allure/Glamour. No one likes them! Use the hours you have to have classes for the salon for continuing education.
    And stop being so safe! It's 2012, time to break out of your shell!
