    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Paid sick days and lots of vacation/personal time.

    Cons

    Works almost all major holidays, and anytime there is not a state of emergency call for bad weather

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep supervisors consistent, my supervisor has changed four times in the last year.

  2. This company entices you with a lot of promises, which they do not follow through on.

    Pros

    Great employee discounts on products and services, gratis, training on new products. Surrounded by talented vendors and staff.

    Cons

    Not enough payroll hours. Managers working as the sole cashiers and selling floor coverage. Catty environment, gossip not controlled by management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very honest with employees. Let them know of the lack of hours. Do not make false promises regarding hours, promotions, or available positions.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty

    Pros

    Pretty easy about time off requests. Ok salary. Shifts are manageable.

    Cons

    You have to be patted down at the end of every shift which feels very degrading. They whine and moan about payroll and don't give out many hours, but be prepared to work late every shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need to be treated better and not like potential thieves.

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

    Pros

    The individual store management was nice to work with. Occasional product training from various brands and some gratis were nice perks.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Very little training. Hours were cut all the time, and there were never that many hours to get to begin with. The company showed little loyalty to long term employees.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty

    Pros

    Fun people and nice environment.

    Cons

    They do not really train you on their systems. So every time I was with a customer no one was around to help and I would have to wait long periods of times for another employee or manager to help. This did not make the customers happy. They gave me pretty bad hours and my second week there it was labor day weekend and they had me working Thursday-Monday with 6-8 hour shifts and I only wanted 15 hours a week max.
