Current Employee - Prestige Beauty Advisor

I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time

Pros

Easy if you love working with guests and love what you do. Discount is worth it. Great if you have supporting management.

Cons

Not enough pay. You’re asked to be up at the register most of the day rather than on the floor.

Advice to Management

Follow and support your teams DOR’s, without neglecting them. Your team won’t feel motivated if they aren’t supported.
