    Pros

    Discount. Clientele build. Easy to get time off. Easy work schedule. No late nights.

    Cons

    Inconsistent enforcement of rules. Rude customers. Rude co-workers. Favoritism of employees by management. Gossiping and bad mouthing of others between employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get your crap together. Enforce rules evenly across. I thought coming in this time it would truly be a different experience and it was pretty much the same crap I dealt with before. Would never work for this store or recommend it as a good place of employment for anyone else.

    Pros

    This has been one of my favorite jobs thus far, people here are so nice and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Salary is a very low in comparison to what other Esthetician's make, tips are not that great since it is mainly a retail store and not a salon

    Pros

    Wonderful people, always busy, great discounts and incentives. The management was friendly and patient. The work hours were reasonable and you got to learh a lot about beauty products.

    Cons

    The customers were often high maintence and demanding. It would get hard to stand on your feet constantly. You were required to always smile and say yes to the customer, which can get a little exhausting:

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Most of what I know about customer service came from the guidance I got from management at the time I was at Ulta.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work here are for the discounts.

    Cons

    Your work hours are short and they don't make 40 hours available so you are unable to receive health insurance benefits.

    Pros

    For people that work hard and are professional there are always opportunities to move up. I was promoted twice since joining a year and a half ago. Great benefits, awesome environment, and all promotions and scheduling of hours are based on how well you perform...not favoritism!

    Cons

    Sometimes the building is too cold so you should dress in layers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    training, discount, gratis, education and fun

    Cons

    Very tasky, and hard to balance tasks with guests while there are only two people. There and one of them is you

    Advice to Management

    Not enough hours to get everything done.
