I worked at Ulta Beauty part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good employee discount, especially during the holidays.
Easy work that does not require a degree.
You get a chance to play around with the tester products.

Cons

Minimal pay.
Angry customers that don't read the fine print on their coupons.
Dealing with theft.

Advice to Management

Proofread and spell check the memos that you send to the stores, because they are oftentimes filled with mistakes, which makes the company look unprofessional.
Make sure that the store managers actually give the gratis to the subordinates - some managers are greedy and hog the free stuff for themselves.
Try to incorporate more high-end vendors, such as Makeup Forever, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, or Inglot.

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

    Pros

    25% off Retail Discount
    50% off Salon Services

    Cons

    *Bad Managers

    *little working hours

    *they don't hire cleaning crews so you mop and sweep, while the managers count money all the way up until midnight

    *brow bar is a rip off they wax off almost all of your eyebrows, and then fill them back in with a $30 kit
    and don't just think your getting your brows done, there gonna talk you in to buying at least 3 products fo $40 or more

    *you can't tell the customers the truth about products,they actually tell everyone to lie.

    * they hand out coupons for things customers don't want

    * and if you want to make money you have to lie to get people to sign up for allure & glamour magazines (PEOPLE ALWAYS GET MAD AT YOU WHEN THEY GET CHARGED)

    *You have to make customers wait for lead cashier or manager (and this always takes forever) if a customer needs a return or exchange. And if you've ever worked retail, this is a big pain.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, Staff, Location was OK not the best

    Cons

    Didn't rec proper training
    Corporate personnel is rude.
    District Manager is not of use. She doesn't assist new managers and provide the tools they need to run an effective business.
    Hired any and everyone that applied with or without proper skills and knowledge

    Advice to Management

    If you're looking to work with a company that doesn't support or care about it's people, this is the place. Do yourself a favor and don't apply. If you have to just do what you need to because no one is going to guide you. Especially in NY
