Pros

Wonderful place to add to your resume since there are hundreds of brands to learn from. You are able to come into contact with many vendors which will educate you on their brands. You get yearly raises, employee discount, gratis, and specialty time periods where you get a larger discount on most items in the store. Working for a specialty boutique has its benefits considering you get a set amount of hours allotted for that brand. So depending on your productivity you can get more or less hours. If you are a hard worker, Ulta will stand by your side.

Cons

Praise and recognition is few and far between. Compensation can be low unless you request a raise. Your experience with Ulta all depends on your management. Some recognition for stores only goes to General Managers and not the entire team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more recognition for employees. Realize that happy employees creates a happy work environment. Pay employees what they are worth. Communication is key.

    Pros

    Gratis is awesome, pay is good

    Cons

    Little hours given by corporate, so skeleton crew always working and lots of needy guest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more people on the floor and more guest would buy more with help.

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

    Pros

    Great merchandise, clean environment, decent pay, nice staff

    Cons

    minimal hours, sporadic scheduling, the staff told me that they couldn't schedule me because of "lack of hours"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I once went to Ulta to take advantage of my employee discount to purchase some skin care products and that was when I found out that I'd been terminated and the staff at Ulta never bothered to contact me to let me know. My advice is to always let employees know if they've been terminated, whatever the reason.
