    I worked at Ulta Beauty part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There was always someone to turn to at my store that wanted to cheer you on with any task. Even now not working there my old coworkers still love supporting me in any way they can. The benefits for my position were amazing and I really enjoyed the variation of tasks every day held.

    Cons

    While my job had a lot of variety and I was never bored. It was because I was expected to do the job I was hired for as well as the job of a regular Beauty Advisor as well. So if you get bored easily, this is the job for you. I also think wearing dress shoes every single day to work when you're not allowed to sit down ever is a tad much. Especially for workers within the salon that often times pull 11 or 12 hour shifts and are on their feet the entire time. I think hiring pays are often times a bit odd. While myself and another girl were hired at the same time at the same pay, six months later two girls who were useless were hired at a dollar more an hour.
