    Pros

    Work hard and get rewarded. Satisfying job. Love seeing my efforts get recognized. I worked extremely hard and went from a prestige manager to a store manager.

    Cons

    None. If you put in the work, you will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing talent. It's absolutely working.

    Pros

    Employee discount, gratis, life long friendships.

    Cons

    Everything is controlled by corporate, managers do not have much control. Ideas where not welcome. Little room for growth. Horrible hours. Week by week scheduling. 4 hour shifts. Drama. High turnover rate. New management each month. Little training. Disorganized in every way possible.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs more training and needs to listen to their employees.

    Pros

    Ulta is a very great company to work for. They treat their employees with respect and they are also very understanding.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the hours could be much better, and the pay is just okay, a little over minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more hours!!

    Pros

    Good discount, great customers and good benefits

    Cons

    No work life balance, no payroll, two person coverage is not enough in a mall, high theft,
    no company support, because of lack of payroll employees are stressed, due to lack of employees on the floor Customers are not happy. Ulta does not trust it's employees watch them from video cameras

    Advice to Management

    ulta needs to trust the employees. Support the manager's, take some kind of responsibility for the things that happen when there is no payroll, slow down opening stores and work with the stores that are currently open.
