    Pros

    It's a great place to gain sales experience and product knowledge.

    Cons

    Unless one wants to be a Prestige Manager at another store, upward mobility seems limited.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your best employees with more money and opportunity.

    Pros

    Gratis
    Training( on and off site )
    Experience
    100% discounted services at salon if you are a salon employee
    Build clientele
    Use your leverage or experience and clientele to advance your career elsewhere.

    Definitely a resume builder position, work here for 6-12 months to gain experience selling every major skincare line on the market excluding high end.

    Cons

    Esthethtician pay plan is a joke
    Not challenging
    Very little hours that flex no matter if you 'level jump' or not. 20-35 hours max! Be careful and make sure you like the managment team.. If not there's another UltA down the street!

    Advice to Management

    Keep great managers and take out the trash. Stop micro-managing the salon. Realize potential before it's too late.

    Pros

    20% disct on products 50% off salon services. You can use ulta rewards in conjunction with disct.

    Cons

    The pay is relatively low, not alot of room for advancement unless you want to be a manager. You work mostly 4 hr shifts nights and weekends.

    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

    Tried new amazing products daily, Interacted with guests and helped them with their needs, Helped the crew grow and find confidence within.

    Cons

    The management team was a clique. They always piled way too many tasks onto an employee with an impossible amount of time to complete it. The gratis for training was never given out, just hoarded in the office until we proved worthy enough to take it home. The hours were cut back so severely that we would have one an opening manager once opening cashier a closing manager and a closing cashier. Cashiers were responsible for taking care of guests in prestige, whatever the daily task or planogram was, and cashiering. I was basically a glorified cashier if there were another manager there besides me. Hours were cut more than a few times to where all managers were working and none of the cashiers got any hours. They execute the whole success of the business as if they were trying to sabatoge it.

    Advice to Management

    Your team WANTS to work for you and WANTS 100% completeion. Just give them a little breathing room and stop asking more and more of them.

    Pros

    hands on experience with applying make. you get to try diffrent brands high end and drug store make up. Gratis can be rewarding.

    Cons

    hour was cut from like 30n a week to 10. not enough help on the floor for customers but plenty of caishers. THey expect you to do alot of work with little pay. Vendors are very chatty and like to push the ulta staff around while they talk amoungs themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Watch the vendors also dont just blame ulta employees for things the whole staff should be responsible for, like cleaning their stations.
