Seasonal Retail Associate - Chesterfield, MO

Seasonal Retail Associate (Current Employee)
Chesterfield, MO

I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time for less than a year

ProsDespite the fact that I would be there for only a few weeks everyone was super accommodating when I joined the team. They answered any questions I had. Outgoing staff and team -- they want to work alongside fun/outgoing people. Great employee discount.

ConsUnloading the trucks each week is tough because you have to get there at 6:00 AM, however, you get to know the staff a lot better.
