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

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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and managers, allowed me to work part-time while attending school, the discounts

    Cons

    Not enough hours
    pay isn't that great
    A bit stressful
    Unruly GM who came off as a bully
    Let go for no apparent and full length reason
    NO diversity AT ALL in employees
    Crappy break room
    Mainly everything

    I don't understand how they could hire me and about 15 other employees, but I go in not even a week later, and out of the 15-20 people they had only 2 were working there, and left on schedule, but a whole new crop of girls from other stores and new hires were there working. why not use the people you already had?

    Advice to Management

    GM, start to treat your employees with a bit more respect, yelling and snatching things from them and having them feel less than is hurtful, it does not help your case when you have the entire team giving you stink face for your attitude. Be nicer and more respectful. Also allow employees to get more hours, do rotations if necessary.
