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

    Pros

    The pros are my experience that I had gained and the gratis and the bonus and getting to interact with customers. I really loved talking to customers and being able to share my knowledge with them. I liked attending meetings and learning about products and receiving complimentary products, but nothing will beat talking with customers.

    Cons

    My General manager was not the best but most of the employees were not nice and hard to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Train the employees better

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

    Pros

    The discount is pretty good. I've made a lot of friends working here. Most of the shifts are 4 hours so pretty easy.

    Cons

    They cut hours like crazy. One week you could be scheduled 20 hours, the next you could be scheduled 8. Very inconsistant, but thats retail for you. I know management varies wherever you go, but I find that management isn't very hands on, and they like to play favorites and give gratis to their favorites. Also there is little to NO training involved. Constant complaint from customers is that the employees have no knowledge on products.

    Advice to Management

    Train, train and train!
