    I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, high paced, great products, flexible schedules

    Cons

    Cash wrap needs faster easier to operate cash registers. Thier are better ones out there. Need more space for larger items.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees who work for you. They will do what you need them to do if you train them correctly. Don't talk to them like they are a child. They are only getting $9 an hour. Need to pay more. $12.00 an hour will give you better employees.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am an empty nester and don’t really need to work, but this gets me out of the house. I work 3 days a week and love tasking(receiving shipment and changing planograms). I love the discounts.

    Cons

    The younger employees are very cliquey and don’t really have the same work ethic and there is your typical cattiness you have with a group of women. I wish more men would apply.

    Advice to Management

    You can’t be buddies with your employees. Look at your cameras often to see who is actually working or just standing around talking when you’re not there. Even other managers will do this when GM is gone.

    Pros

    Ulta is growing like crazy when most retailers and closing doors. There is an amazing amount of career growth opportunity here. The pay for management is good. The benefits are competitive. Upper management lives by company values and demonstrates a high level of integrity.

    Cons

    This is not the place to work if you are lazy. You really have to be willing to work hard and be committed to constant learning to succeed because the environment is fast paced and ever changing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inproving the education for new managers. Things are going in the right direction and there is so much more information and guidance available now than four years ago.
