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

    Pros

    As someone who loves makeup and is well versed in customer service in retail, i thought I'd love this job. i did not. Only pros for me were the discount, flexible work hours, and having knowledge about new makeup releases

    Cons

    Maybe this is a store by store basis, but the store I entered at was complete chaos, and that caused me to quit. First of all, the training i received was not at all for the position I was eventually working at my home store. I was responsible for duties (and expected to know how) to perform them without assistance, and when asked for help I was berated and then treated like an idiot honestly. None of the other managers cared to do their job, and coworkers would regularly not show up and still be allowed to work there. It was a mess that wasnt worth working for, new product (high end prestige) sat in the back a month because no one cared to put it out, advertisements and fixtures regularly went missing, and I was locked out for 2hrs because no one thought to give me my keys to the store my first opening shift.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who actually care to do their job, or at least show up
