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.

If you love make up, this is your place to be. To be surrounded by make up is great because you get to see what is new in stock. If you love helping people make decisions regarding make up or giving advice this is a great opportunity
Typical day of greeting and helping guests and making goals when it comes to loyalty programs. You do receive gratis as a prestige beauty advisor, discount should be increased since the pay isn’t good (pay is decent if you work in boutiques). Staff works together as a team and we do have fun at work if you love anything Beauty. Pace differs day to day, But the only way you work full time is if you are management.
Gratis, small discount, constant training on products
Not enough hours, discount is low, hourly pay is low
Salon Manager/ Trainer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 9, 2018
Always changing! Either adding new products or taking away after a set has been done. Creating new positions then within a year deleting the position. The company continues to grow but they forget about the staff on the front lines taking care of the customers.

terrible hours, poor management , okay pay, rude coworkers, dont help work with your schedule, ZERO training, not fun at all and no makeup training at all, basically you only know with what you walk in with
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Madison, MS – April 9, 2018
The only benefit was working with makeup and the customers. The management was chaotic and their turnover rate was way too high for managers within the first six months of opening the store. I'm glad I left as early as I did.
Counter Manager (Current Employee) – Ohio – April 9, 2018
Focusing on making daily sales plan, helping clients throughout the entire store, and educating all store partners to build business. Asking clients open ended questions to build an entire bag. Linking store partners to build service sales and client retention. Great place to build a career.

Ulta was fun. My co workers were fun. The management wasn’t they teamed up against you. They gave you poor hours if they didn’t like you. It was a horrible experience but I loved everything else about it.
Retail Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Myrtle Beach, SC – April 5, 2018
Working at ulta had the typical disadvantages of retail i.e. varying hours, crazy customers, and working for managers who are not always professional. I worked in two different stores and one was amazing but the store manager at the other was a nightmare very unprofessional and rude. With that being said it was a fun job i love makeup so getting to work with it everyday and do various training with brands was amazing. The product and services discount was amazing.
makeup training, discounts, working with various brands
company policies about returns, management, work life balance
No matter your position Ulta offers a variety of positions that you can advance into. Management is always understanding and fair to it's employees. You may also apply for health care and 401k benefits.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 5, 2018
Tons of long hours. Work life balance suffered due to this. It was an ok place to work, but if you want to have time outside of work do not work here. Average 50+ hour work weeks for an entry level base salary.
