Regional Manager is very mean and thrives on belittling others
retail (Former Employee), sterling VA – February 1, 2013
Pros: flex schedules
Cons: poor regional manager
This is a good place to learn about beauty products. The discounts are good. Flex scheduling is a plus. The regional manager loves to make people cry, she is so belittling and is not at all friendly or likeable, she called employees liers, stood in the way of stylist transfers, The staff changes so much due to her ill behavior.
Stylist (Former Employee), Holmdel, NJ – October 16, 2014
Pros: great interactions, great team
Cons: not enough hours, management wasn't very proactive
A typical day at work would be running around busy with multiple clients at a time all with color on their head. I learned how to work with a team very well and how to multitask, as my job had many different duties. I got along with my co-workers and many of them are still very close to me, we were a tight team. The hardest part of the job was around – more... the holidays when the salon and store would be slammed, but we always made it work. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with people, sales, and making women feel confident. – less
Ulta/Beauty Adviser (Former Employee), Huntington Beach, CA – October 14, 2014
Pros: gratis, great work enviroment
Cons: not enough hours
I loved working for Ulta! The Managers and Co workers were a great group. We had advance training in Skin Care and Makeup. It was a great way to help people who needed help with questions about makeup and skincare that I would not otherwise be able to help.
Aesthetician (Former Employee), Holyoke, MA – October 13, 2014
Working at Ulta Beauty was very different from working in a Salon in that the potential clients are coming in to shop and try new products. I made new friends with the clients who came to see me regularly. The results that we were able to achieve for their skin concerns was rewarding to them and to myself in being able to assist them with their skin – more... care goals. Ulta Beauty wants their employees to succeed. They work with you to achieve personal and financial goals. I left only on account of moving to another city. I would work for Ulta again. – less
prestige (Former Employee), Culver City, CA – September 30, 2014
Cons: management is horrible no work life balance
The first month I started working seemed pretty nice but they don't train you on anything before they throw you on that floor! With crazy customer's who steal and belittle you all day no payroll to hire cleaning crew so they slave you to do the job they hire you to do plus all the extra like a house maid the worse part the salon and the benefit girls – more... had to work double people would interrupt all the appointments they had because no one would be on the floor to help the customers who were shopping for cosmetics I rarely get hours so every prestige sales person works like two days for abour four hours ..........and are very random days they do change the schedule with out notice ... the management at my location was horrible the GM was so rude to the employee's and never was leading by example she actually would be late take extra long breaks have a nasty grumpy face all day never wore make up and her dress code never looked porefessional she then never corrects everyone on policy or procedures only the staff that she didn't like ...... I started noticing a pattern on the all the woman she had let go they were all beautiful bubbly personality kind a gals! The other managers just kinda don't say anything or do anything because they all kiss butt to her and agree with her to stay in good circumstances ......... they lack foundation so the store as a whole is a mess favoritism through management causes the employee's to lose interest in the work place hardly any incentives ...... no where to grow no motivation no raise ..... no hours ......dead end job – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Montgomery, AL – September 29, 2014
I greeted and assisted customers daily in purchasing items. I learned about the great variety of cosmetics, fragrance, and styling products. My managers were very down-to-earth but professional to work with. I enjoyed looking forward to going to work because I had a more positive outlook on life interacting in that type of environment.
Great products and discount but little else to offer
Cahsier/consultant (Current Employee), Macedonia, OH – September 28, 2014
Pros: good discount, great products
Cons: have to ask for your breaks, little to no hours, pay sucks!
No hours. Co. over-hired for grand opening and now has no hours to give their people. 3-5 hours a week isn't worth the time or gas to go to work. We were told to apply at Charmin Charlie's next door if we want more hours. Its terrible the way people are disregarded and the schedules come out at the very last minute as in the day before the work week – more... starts! Very unprofessional place. I feel used. Looking for another job! – less
