Current Employee - Salon Manager

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

Pros

Great work/personal life balance, management in store, upper management, benefits, education, team work, goal oriented, employee discounts as well as extra employee discounts every so often. Able to... meet with high people in the company every so often. Representatives of different cosmetic companies hold events in store. Great collab of artists. Endless opportunities to grow within company.

Cons

Hard to pass up all the new skin care, makeup and hair supplies that are so tempting upon checkout.

Advice to Management

This is a place that is all about team work and winning together. Customers are why we stay in business. Creating a positive team bleeds positive vibes to customers. I do not recommend for someone... that is not skilled at communication, working in groups nor customer service. Definitely a rewarding job and position. Thanks for all you do, Ulta.

Former Employee - Sales Manager

I worked at Victoria's Secret full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

great pay rate, opportunities to grow within the company and gratis packages as well as bonuses frequently. I was happy working for this company and started from the bottom working my way to a... management position in 2 years. Hard work goes recognized.

Cons

opportunity to improve home work life balance some drama within team payroll was very strict and often left us understaffed making it very stressful at some times
