Regional Manager is very mean and thrives on belittling others
retail (Former Employee) – sterling VA – February 1, 2013
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.
Beauty Advisor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 3, 2017
Ulta is my very first company to work for that is actually what I love; Makeup! BUT unfortunately not enough hours. The atmosphere is great. Some of the staff are amazing to work with. some of the co workers are amazing minus those who think too much of themselves and think everything is a competition. I do feel like its a huge pressure when you are force to sale credit cards when customers don't want them. It makes you Feel uncomfortable. I haven't work in 3 weeks maybe more last work day I only worked 4 hours. Sucks because I finally found a job doing what I love but not getting any hours and I believe its because of the credit cards; not pushing customers to get them. We should be able to express ourselves freely and not how they want us to.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Lafayette, LA – November 1, 2017
I have been with ULTA part time for a little over two years and I love my managers, co-workers and the actual company itself is pretty great to their employees. There is always a way to move up, you just have to make it known. If I wasn't in school, I would probably keep this jobs and try to move up.
"Fill the fridge" contests, easy to communicate with any manager
Hours fluctuate, some weeks you may have over 20, some you may have under
Factory Worker (Current Employee) – Greenwood, IN – November 1, 2017
I love this company, this just isn't the same place I left two years ago. However they're great to all employees and treat everyone the same I absolutely recommend this company to anyone seeking employment
You can be productive with the volume of customers to help in the store
SALON DESIGNER (Former Employee) – Lodi, CA – October 31, 2017
Management didn't have enough time to give, and when store productivity was low management sent you home. Promise to give more hours but would take it away because of low productivity. Some workers were not responsible and unclean. Not profesional and talked about clients making me uncomfurtable.
Prestige Beauty Manager (Former Employee) – Peabody, MA – October 30, 2017
Greet customers and meet thier needs. Demostrate how to use products and educate client and staff on benefits and application of skincare and cosmetics. I managed the sale floor ensuring all displays and merchandise are as they should be.
fun hands on
Was not always enough staff to accommodate the traffic
Working at Ulta not only as a prestige beauty advisor but as a shift supervisor has developed my skills in customer service and product knowledge exponentially. Ulta has provided training, feedback, and support when needed. As a part-time job I find working at Ulta Beauty very fulfilling.
I loved working at Ulta! It was busy during the holidays, but overall it was a good experience. The people I worked with were great and everyone helped everyone. It was quite sometime ago so I am not sure what the culture is like now.
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee) – Horseheads, NY – October 29, 2017
Working at Ulta has been my favorite place to work so far. They provided a clean, friendly, fun environment. The management was great and I met a lot of amazing people. I would definitely recommend working here if you have a love for beauty, skincare, makeup, and helping customers find the right product for them.
Advisor (Current Employee) – Strongsville, OH – October 28, 2017
I have learned a lot from working here, that's for sure. Easy, up to date technology, like the registers, headsets, and the ULTA.net were all easy to learn and familiarize. I feel like most of my coworkers are very unhappy working under the company and certain managers.
Stylist (Current Employee) – Olympia, WA – October 28, 2017
Ulta is a great place to work at if you want to feel like your're part of a family. The managers have an open door policy and it is nice to be able to go to your leads with anything! Working in the salon makes the pay difficult to deal with, since we get paid by commission. But I love what I do so I have stayed there for 3+ years
Co-Manager (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – October 28, 2017
I worked almost fifty hours a week as a salaried manager and barely had time to rest. It was fast paced and frenzied most of the time. I was rarely able to leave the store on a break or lunch break due to coverage and we were often short staffed.
Beauty Advisor/Lead Cashier (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – October 27, 2017
I absolutely love working at Ulta Beauty because we have an amazing group of people. I have made my way to lead cashier and hope to move my way up the company. I have learned a lot and learn more everyday.
