I worked at Ulta Beauty part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free product (sometimes) Good knowledge of makeup that works best for you

Cons

They give out old makeup testers as "gratis" when it should be thrown away, whenever someone does a job very well If you are harassed by another employee, lawyer up. Do not notify their HR department because your claim will go unnoticed and you will be just short of fired for being a whistle blower. Be prepared to work with people who do not like their jobs, including your managers, which will affect your job immensely. District managers are either really great or really terrible to work with, so hope you get a good one!

Advice to Management

Your company makes billions in profits every year but you give out trash as 'gratis' to your employees, half of whom are on some sort of government assistance. If you want to have a successful company, stop using taxpayers dollars to fill in the gaps of your workers salaries.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discount at the Salon was good (50% off) for employees, you get to work with some great people who turn into friends, the brands sold there are good quality, and there's some room for a higher position. The flexibility for scheduling is so-so (kind of falls in the middle, not a pro, nor a con.)

    Cons

    -THE PAY. Depending on what you do, task team members make way less than what they deserve. Cashiers with more experience than others should get paid more, especially more than minimum wage. (And $.50 is not a promotion.) -The fact that cashiers get yelled at for $3.50 off $10 coupons not working on products such as Urban Decay or Dermalogica. They should start publishing in the ads what actually falls under "prestige brands" and "hair artistry brands". -Hours fluctuate. I would work 34 hours one week and 20 the next week. -As a cashier, you're mostly scheduled alone. Because of that, you can't leave the registers to help a customer find an item, and the prestige brand associates are usually busy. -You can be scheduled for 7 and a half hours, but end up leaving after 8 on a busy day, but with no 30 minute break, only a 15. -Some managers were rude and disrespectful, not helpful at all. -The discount wasn't completely terrible, but definitely not enough. -Some coworkers came from Sephora and would talk about all the free gratis they got, whereas we got virtually none from Ulta.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the types of managers you're hiring and look at your associates too. Some of us actually worked really hard but get no recognition. I feel bad for some of my old coworkers that are stuck there.
