    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Making events. Having so many brands within the stop. One stop beauty destination

    Cons

    No hours for your team so you are left doing everything. Cashiering most of the time

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours so we can actually do what a prestige manager is supposed to be doing

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    While I love helping customers, I can get burnt out. Ulta provides me with enough "other" tasks that I can help customers, but also gives me other duties to occupy my time. When I need a change of pace, I know I just need to speak up and I can redirect my energy elsewhere. A little variety is good for this girls soul.

    Cons

    Corrporate/Upper management does not support the store very well. It has been getting better, but Gratis is far between, they throw out perfectly good products instead of letting employees have it, and advertised items do not reach stores in time or qty are so limited a store may only receive 1-3 of the ad items, leaving angry customers making bad reviews/feedback to the helpless store.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more perks. Customers expect to have knowledgeable staff, and that means trying the products. Let employees take home what is deemed "trash". Our store received more than 60+ bottles of fragrance testers from the vendors at the Holiday season, but they just sat as wee didn't need them. Upper management said to "destroy in field"! WHY? Senseless waste.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive and upbeat environment, easy to gain new clients, they offer training and opportunities to grow, guest tip well and enjoy shopping in the store. Redken hair color and salon products, its not hard to make commission over hourly, they give gratis, the store holds lots of events and opportunities to learn more about make up and cosmetics.

    Cons

    summers are slow so they cut back on hours, which cuts back on your paycheck, and the salon doesn't consistently have a manager

    Advice to Management

    relax, and stop allowing yourselves to get wrapped up in the petty issues of the day, there are much bigger problems within the salon and store that need your attention.
