worse places to work
prestige (Former Employee), Culver City, CASeptember 30, 2014
Pros: cosmetics
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

Great environment!
Cashier (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: gratis
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, OHSeptember 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

Came to work at four am, and would begin unloading pallets. I learned how to work with others at a fast pace while still having fun and being professional.

caucasian individuals only
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), North Port, FLSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: discounts on products, services, flexible shifts, great pay
Cons: not an equal opportunity employer
this is a wonderful place to work if you love makeup , applying make up, and beauty products. You learned alot about new products and services. There are various shifts and great perks of working for ulta. Unfortunately the managers at this location got rid of everyone who is spanish or had a bit of color to their skin.

Licensed Hairstylist (Former Employee), Williamsburg, VASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: nice employee discount
Cons: no room for advancement
Over all the job itself was fulfilling but the compensation benefits and Management was terrible. Opportunity for advancement was poor they had their picks even though you had the experience and outstanding job performance was good they picked who they wanted to move up

Growing company with ambitious sales goals
Benefit Brow Bar Lead Arch Expert (Former Employee), Brentwood, CASeptember 19, 2014
Pros: occasional vendor gratis
Cons: healthcare, no training
My experience with Ulta helped me fine tune my skills in sales drive, and long term customer loyalty. Customer service has always been important to me, and my department not only excelled because of this, but I allied with other department managers to inter-personalize each client's experience. I inspired others to connect with the client, and created – more... an atmosphere of excitement and fun. Management was rarely cohesive, and this affected overall sales and store morale. The company has high expectations for hourly employees without any real incentive, a paltry benefits package and no training. The most wonderful part of this job were my clients, from educating them about products and services, to putting into their hand something they feel good about. – less

Fun place to work
Cashier (Former Employee), Dayton, OHSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: fun place to work
Cons: low pay and hours
ULTA was a very fun and energetic place to work. It was only part time with limited hours but for someone who is going to school it would be perfect. You get to learn about makeup and all of the name brands. The management is wonderful and friendly

straight forward and relaxing at times
Sales associate (Former Employee), Arlington Heights, ILSeptember 10, 2014
I would stock the products that would come from the trucks. The hardest parts were when we were understaffed and we would have a large shipment of products arriving. Dealing with my coworkers was the most enjoyable part

Exciting new retailer with growth potential
District Manager ; Pacific Northwest (Former Employee), Romeoville, ILSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: very fast-paced and allowed the use of many skill sets.
Cons: company grew too fast for corporate structure to keep up.
This was an opportunity to exercise my expertise in leadership of teams within a rapidly growing organization. I was able to work independently in the field with minimal supervision. Each day offered a myriad of opportunities to problem-solve, plan strategically, and refine communication with corporate office. I really enjoyed being able to make decisions – more... locally to ensure our profitability and stability.

The hardest part of the job was extensive travel and when the company went public in 2007, many of our entrepreneurial opportunities went away. – less

A fun work environment.
Prestige Sales Advisor (Former Employee), Blasdell, NYSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: little stress at work to sell.
Cons: lack of incentives to do better.
This is a nice place to work if you are new to retail. Sales associates don't have personal sales goals but are required to contribute to the goal of each department and line if working in the prestige department. Some heavy lifting is required if you don't work in the salon but it's not too bad. At times it may get hectic due to sales but nothing too – more... crazy. Good experience to see how every aspect of a store should be ran. – less

Productive!
Hair Stylist (Current Employee), Springfield, MOSeptember 1, 2014
I love working in any salon, so ULTA is no different! I would just really like to better myself. A typical day is rather slow when building my business up. I get better everyday that I am working, it is just hard to better myself when business just isn't coming in. My co-workers are great! We all get along and work as a team. Its a good environment. – more... The hardest part is just getting the business in and staying busy. The most enjoyable part is that I am able to do what I love everyday! – less
