Even in the busiest and most stressful times of work (i.e. Christmas) Management always made work fun and enjoyable. We would laugh a cut up together to relieve tension created by demanding or demeaning customers. Great support system!

great breakroom, employees had family vibe
Supervisor assistant (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZAugust 5, 2014
Pros: clean facility, family vibe with co-workers
Cons: too many people for building they needed to expand due to growth in company
Typical work day was starting the day off by setting batteries in forklifts and making sure they all ran. then assist employees and help supervisor with orders and pulls.

I learned how to lead and to set goals motivate the TEAM

Manage ment made sure all equipment and machine was working proper and floors clear and clean. Kept safe work invironment.

Co-workers – more... were busy and eager to work.

Hardest part was running multipal tasks at once on busy days

Completing the days with no work injuries and productive sales – less

Lots of Potential, but depends
Manager (Current Employee), Northern VAAugust 3, 2014
Ulta has so much potential to be great, but there are many hurdles that can make this unachievable. Managers do not work cohesively together as a team, and in my store GMs seemed to be the root cause of many issues that went on. You are given little to no payroll to accomplish ridiculous amounts of tasks, as well as guest service. It makes it feel nearly – more... impossible.

On the positive side, this really is a fun place to work. I enjoyed working with different cosmetic brands. Vendor support and trainings made the job very enjoyable. – less

Good job if you like high school type jobs
Prestige beauty consultant (Former Employee), summerville, scJuly 30, 2014
Pros: free makeup
Cons: pay, breaks, advancement, management, co workers, customers
Decent job to start if you like to do makeup and are in high school, not enough to make a living. They don't train you at all, bad pay, customers are horrible. Management are snakes (all the way up to corporate). No room for advancement. Glad I got out. This place is a joke.

Makeup artist dream!
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), North Port, FLJuly 26, 2014
Pros: breaks
Cons: not enough hours, favoritism
Open and close the store. Cashier, have guests sign up for rewards cards. Color match, give makeovers. Find colors that blend with guests faces. Know about each brand of makeup, and skin care. Know about sales, Add ons, GWP (Gift with purchase) and salon services. In charge of truck when scheduled for it. My favorite part of the job was not only the – more... makeup, but I love helping those find what they need. I am a big peoples person, and seeing the look on their face, and that wonderful communication with them makes them come back. I love being the reason why a guest comes back. – less

Exciting and contemporary workplace
Merchandise Coordinator (Former Employee), Summerville, SCJuly 25, 2014
Pros: learning about new products
Cons: not budgeted enough hours to properly staff the store
I enjoyed working at Ulta Beauty. I was able to quickly advance within the company. I started at Ulta has a seasonal worker and advanced to Merchandise Coordinator with 1.5 years. A typical day for me would be to open the store, complete and send morning reports to the corporate office, schedule employee task and goals for the day. I would be the manager – more... on duty, which would include assisting customers and staff with any customer service issues. I would then have my merchandising duties to handle for the day. Including but not limited to processing inventory, price reductions, handling returns, damages, return to vendors and resetting any stock within the store. The hardest part of the day would be when i would have to handle processing the truck, managing the store and work with customers in peak hours as the only manager within the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was the customer service aspect. I loved working and training new employees as well as helping customers to find the best product for their needs. – less

Ulta Salon is a really nice place to work
Nail Technician (Former Employee), Hurst, TXJuly 22, 2014
I worked as an hourly nail tech with tips. The pay was good and I had the opportunity to learn additional techniques and other cosmetelogical skills to further my career. I grew tired very quickly of a very slow paced work environment and decided I needed to attempt something a bit more challenging than working in a salon. This particular work was not – more... suited to me personally. – less

Great place for guest facing
General Manager (Current Employee), Little Rock, ArkansasJuly 17, 2014
Pros: very broad range of products that generate a large variety of customers to shop in the store.
The customers who shop ULTA are so much fun to work with. Not only do you share your knowledge with them, they are more than happy to share their's with you -- building your product knowledge even more!

If you do not have a background in the beauty industry, you will not be fully welcomed into the ULTA world by anyone other than the customers.
