What people are saying about Ulta Beauty

Retail & Hospitality


works at 


I want to piggyback on the post from someone at JCPENNY from Saturday about the most ridiculous call-out excuse (I hope this is OK!). What was an example of when there was a legitimate reason for someone missing or better yet closing your store, but management clearly did not have the brain cell that day?? Here's mine: When I was still in school, I was a manager at ULTA, and one day, we got about 9 inches of snow in 30 mins. I mean, I woke up to nothing, went to make coffee (see comments)

      Ulta is an amazing company that recognizes all forms of beauty and honors diversity and inclusion.


      If the retail world is your jam, honestly there aren’t any cons. They truly stand apart from other retailers and appreciate their employees.

        Great access to knowledge, Fun environment, 25% discount and often receive gratis to try out new product. Great informational videos to help learn about the company and the 'Ulta' way of doing things.


        Since Ulta is a "one stop beauty destination" there are many diverse brands and it can be overwhelming to learn all of them quickly. The customers do tend to get upset if you are unaware of the particular brand they are looking for.

      Those hired/rejected by MBB, how did you get the news after the first round of interviews? Via phone or email? As of now all the comms with HR were through email, so not sure what to expect. Also it has been >1 weeks since...🫠McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company



      I recently did a phone interview and it went well. A week later, I get an in person interview with HR. They let me know I will be hearing back from them shortly. On linked in, the position I applied for opened back up, is this a sign that they decided to not hire me? I’ll be reaching out soon. But just got me disappointed.
