    I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Easy way to get your foot into beauty industry

    Very little room for growth unless someone steps down/quits/gets fired, which is rare.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Fun environment. Gratis-depending on the store. My location was awesome and if you did training on the brand for that week you would get gratis. Some stores don’t do that and pretty much save it for the managers or their favorites.

    Cons

    Benefit is the lowest paid boutique at ulta. A lot of times the stores don’t staff enough people and when you’re in a boutique you can’t work the register so you have to sit and watch a line wrap around the store and get glared at by customers who rightfully don’t want to have to wait.

    Advice to Management

    Staff the registers. Staff prestige.

  3. No work life balance

    flexible schedule mainly cashier / tasking behind register gratis when certain goals are achieved excellent discount on merchandise and at the salon they like to make the holiday help permanent help

    I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Learning about the industry.

    Cons

    Hire people that are educated. If the announcement qualification is that a GM is to have at least a 4 year college degree then they MUST have the degree! Difficult to work with haters that are uneducated in leadership positons.

    Advice to Management

    Hire those with higher education, but also check and ask for transcripts from an ACCREDITED school. Many online ones don’t hold to the standards and can easily. I earned my degrees and hear about others falsifying education or not having one even though the announcement calls for this under qualifications. I think Ulta would see a dramatic improvement in the talent and performance of the stores.
