    Pros

    Benefit is great. You can build and maintain clientele, tips make the job worth it. Usually they're pretty flexible with scheduling, and you have a set schedule which is unheard of in retail.

    Cons

    Ulta is a tough company to work for

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes Ulta management tends to forget that developing people is cheaper than finding new staff. They ask a lot from the minimum wage beauty advisor, and don't provide them with enough hours, hence higher turn over.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time

    Pros

    Schedule is flexible, store discounts, good benefits!

    Cons

    Communication is non existent throughout the store, management in this store is incompetent. A lot of gossiping and child like behavior. Hourly pay is low. Dress code should be more flexible. Wait time to be walkout out is rather annoying. Stylists have to wait on a manager to get checked sometimes over 10 -15 minutes

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the management and get some people who actually care about what they are doing instead of being the office gossiping. This stores management only does their job on the days the DM is coming. I've seen good employees go on the account of the management not dealing with the store issues. Management is quick to huddle around a talk about employees on the floor. I would not work for this store again!

    Pros

    Awesome gratis and fun events and training. Discounts can combine with brand offers like bogos. Lots of brands to learn about and purchase!

    Cons

    Hours are constantly a variable since they are based on retail goals. If the store didn't make the goal the team will be understaffed for the following week. Makes things hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more hours to reach retail goals

    Unrealistic goals to get promoted, pay is very low compared to other companies , corporate management doesn't seem to care about major issues in the store. Open every holiday besides Christmas day . Broken equipment takes months to fix or is never fixed .
