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

Pros

Occassional Gratis
50% off salon services
Benefits for full time Managers only

Cons

Pay, Hours, workload, unrealistic sales goals, expendable slave labor mentality, lack of training, no security, no cleaning crew. lack of staff. inventory, Loss prevention, major fail!

Advice to Management

I think the egos are so large in corporate that they cannot see what is really happening below them.
I also think that management at every level does not care about the employees that work for them only the shareholders and sales are important.
The "great reviews" you see here folks are planted. Very few of the stores have the kind of management worthy of your hard work.
When you control stores by payroll hours vs. sales goals met, you are in trouble.
Many employees are placed in dangerous situations working late in crime ridden areas, without security.
Punishing employees for trying to protect your interests does not build loyalty.
Also treating employees like criminals, and letting theives walkis demotivating and demoralizing.
This company is really one of the worst retail environments ever!
And no amount of the occassional free nail polish and lipstick make it any better.
Also environmental protectionshould investigate every ULTA for the phenomenal amount of waste and discarding hazardous products unsafely into the city dumps.
You ULTA SUCK!

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

    Pros

    None, Run away!!! DO NOT WORK HERE!!!

    Cons

    The GM in my opinion is a habitual liar, and is NOT capable of doing her job! If you disagree with her she makes your life a living hell!

    Advice to Management

    Pay Attention to what is going on in the stores. You have a GM that is totally incompetent, you have associate managers that are trying to make up for what the GM is lacking, there is no leadership!
