hardest part of the job is working there
Manager (Current Employee), Nashville, TnJune 18, 2014
Pros: free makeup and 50% off
Cons: threats, gossip
long hours are expected. Too many task without time to achieve results. Micro management and threats of being written up or terminated. Supervisors gossiping about other managers within the district and out of the district. Very unprofessional environment to be in. Would not recommend.

Productive and fun workplace. Not too intense but serious enough to get the job done
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee), Tupelo, MsJune 16, 2014
Pros: goodies for accomplishments
Cons: the driving distance
This has been one of my most favorite places to work at! Not only because I love what I do but the company was really appreciative of us as employees and acknowledged and praised us for the many things we accomplished for their company and brand. VERY generous discounts and friendly staff and customers

Great job for a college student
Lead Cashier (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJune 16, 2014
Pros: gratis, 50% off salon services, easy
Cons: bad store discount, pay unevenness, low pay
Super easy job, pleasant environment, even if my manager paid me a dollar less an hour than the guy in my same position even though I'd been there longer and was a harder worker. Good discount, and so many free products!! Great salon discount, where as store discount was only ok.

Pros: great values, amazing culture, positive encourgagement, great co-workers

As a regional supervisor
District Manager (Former Employee), Barrington, ILJune 8, 2014
Pros: family owned company
Cons: working over 72 hours a week
A typical day supervising and traveling North West Suburbs of Chicago. What I learned from Management be a strong reliable leader to your peers and the demands of a growing company.
The hardest part of my job was traveling and long hours of the work week and the most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the company grow stronger every year with high sales – more... and a great management team. – less

Long hours
Task Assistant/Cashier (Former Employee), Davie, FLJune 8, 2014
Pros: learning the forever changing makeup and cosemtics world
Cons: being severly overworked, unappreciative manager
When working for Ulta Beauty I expected (as I think you should) that being that this was a retail job I would be working long hours for minimal pay. However what I did not realize is that not only would I be working in this kind of environment I would also meet wonderful hardworking people and learn so much in respect to the cosmetics industry. However – more... even with all of that wonderful atmosphere I also had to deal with a horrible store manager who could not separate her personal issues with the responsibilities that came with her job. – less

Lack of teamwork
Picker/Packer (Current Employee), Chambersburg, PAJune 6, 2014
The work day way routine which is fine, I really cant think of anything that I really learned, little differences maybe. Management was good, alittle tough at times which they need to be. New business so its a little rough at times I guess for them. Co-workers were the worst there is no type of team work, None, Thats the hardest part of the job, the – more... co-workers, got along fine with all but no team work which I feel is very important. – less

Love makeup but bad management
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Evansville, INJune 4, 2014
Fun fast paced environment with out dated registers that freeze. Most fun part is trying makeup on others making them feel beautiful. Management is sub par. I think it would be much more enjoyable with a more organized manager

Good experience for a first job.
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee), Hanford, CAJune 4, 2014
Pros: good first job, learn alot
Cons: management lacks skills, and no constructive critisism
I learned a lot from this job, as this was my first real retail job. I learned a lot about merchandising and NPS. My coworkers were some of the best, I can honestly say we will be friends for life. The hardest part of my job is probably doing truck, and the fact that there is no feedback from management. You never really know if you are doing wrong – more... or right. – less

VERY Few Hours, Even seasonal hire, my hours got cut
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJune 2, 2014
Pros: breaks
Cons: hours, pay, communication
Now being hired on as seasonal, I expected to have few hours, but not so few that even when I was on my way to work, management would call me and say, we have to cut hours this week so don't bother coming in. Even on one of the busiest days of the holiday season (Black Friday) I went in at 3 A.M and when i got there, the floor manager says to me " we – more... were going to call you and ell you not to come in but we figured you were already on your way here...." meanwhile they were sending people home around 6 or 7 but I was there until almost 9....I'm not usually one to complain but I genuinely thought that this job was going to be very different than it was. Only a few people were friendly, mostly the prestige consultants... – less

Wouldn't recommend
Cashier (Former Employee), North Little Rock, ARMay 29, 2014
Pros: associate discount, get to play in make-up all day
Cons: management, no hours, no job stability
Of course you'll still have a social life because you'll only get 5-15 hours per week. NO benefits. Associate discount is great, but there is no job security. They randomly let people go due to "budget cuts" and the pay is unreliable. One week your check will be $300, the next it will be $15. Not a job to have if you have bills. Its a teenager job at – more... best. The management is rude, condescending, and always on two different pages so if you do what one manager tells you to do, you will still get reprimanded by the next. Schedules are given out whenever management gets around to it so you can never make plans around work. – less

Challenging but inviting workplace
Prestige Sales (Former Employee), Greenville, SCMay 27, 2014
On a typical day your interactions with customers are very demanding but extremely rewarding. Its unfortunate that there are not many advancement opportunities as it is a very small intimate environment.

High volume fast paced workplace. Very Demanding
Merchandise Manager (Current Employee), Ocala, FLMay 24, 2014
Pros: gratis for work accomplishments
Cons: low pay, benefits, schedule
Typical day includs interacting with various guests with all different wants and needs. Learned about beauty and fragrance and product knowledge. Most enjoyable is the challenge of being a man in a store more geared towards women and products and the obstacles to overcome to connect with the guest. Hardest part of the job would be the first hand knowledge – more... of how the products looks/feels from my point of view. – less
