    Pros

    Being part-time, they are very flexible with your work schedule, even if it is last minute. The associates at my location are all very friendly and willing to help, if you don't know the answer to a specific beauty question. They offer health care for part-time employees!

    Cons

    Retail is retail, you will have to deal with all sorts of personalities. Hours really can very from 25 one week to 13 another week, however the allotted hours goes hand-in-hand with the stores sales. Another con, not being able to use store coupons along with an employee discount. Stay out of any employee gossip, it will be a life saver.

    Advice to Management

    We should be able to use store coupons, maybe a limited number, along with our employee discount.

    Pros

    The staff is really friendly. Always different tasks day to day to keep you busy. I love all the products our store offers! It's rewarding to help people find great products! The registers are really straight forward and easy to work.

    Cons

    I would love if they would teach more about products so I can confidently help our customers. Would love more hours and better pay.

    Advice to Management

    More training please and more hours!

    I love working for Ulta and really love my discount!

    Cons

    Doesn't listen to employees, leaders simply blah blah blah what their bosses have blah blah blahed from their bosses who have blah blah blahed from the people who dreamed up the handbook. Seriously it's a wonderful concept that should actually be put into action! Listen to your employees who actually have brains who walk that hard concrete floor everyday because they actually know what's going on and what needs to be done and how to fix it. Not your jokes that you call GM's who sit in the office all day staring at the cameras looking to catch people doing anything wrong. Oh and just a thought, checking your teeth in the mirror to ensure they are free of lipstick before the door opens is okay!!! There's nothing wrong with making sure that it doesn't look like you've had a little accident before a horrified client does! Seriously I love Ulta and really do love my job I just wish they would wake up and actually listen to us, hello down here, hello hello hello, we're real we have brains, we have ideas, we work in the "trenches" we know what is working and what isn't. We know what will work and what won't, we know what the guests love and can't get enough of and what is simply a waste of space. We know what catches their eye and what doesn't. We are young, hip, mothers, your best clients and probably spend more than your best Ulta client! Recognize us for what we do, who we are, and utilize us accordingly or you'll loose us and some of us really are irreplaceable …

    Pros

    Great people work to work with

    Cons

    Hours are long due to not receiving enough payroll for your store, so as a GM you have to work 50+ hours to support your team.

    Advice to Management

    Don't work here if you want a personal life

    Pros

    Guaranteed walk ins. You only have to provide your sheers. So you get to use a lot of their stuff.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Corporate is almost NEVER available when you need to reach them. My check was always wrong. Everything was always a mess.

    Advice to Management

    actually try to help your stores out. GIVE OUT MORE HOURS. you are NEVER covered. This company needs to take a look at itself and really try to get it together.

    Pros

    Great Benefits with plenty of time off if you need it. The work is straightforward and not hard to do if you are a self-starter.

    Cons

    They promise you a lot at the beginning, but they do not follow through with there promises. As you work there longer, they find ways to phase you out, as they did to me.

    Advice to Management

    Learn who your valuable employees are and don't find excuses to get rid of them.
