I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Fast growing company. No 100% direct competitor. Competitive salaries and benefits. Constantly achieving new benchmarks. Room for improvement creates an atmosphere of opportunity for associates to make their name.

Cons

Tend to "put the cart in front of the horse" when implementing projects. Implementations never seem to achieve desired results that were originally presented. Lack of cooperation between departments, which might be common at other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster cooperation between departments.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The discount at the Salon was good (50% off) for employees, you get to work with some great people who turn into friends, the brands sold there are good quality, and there's some room for a higher position. The flexibility for scheduling is so-so (kind of falls in the middle, not a pro, nor a con.)

    Cons

    -THE PAY. Depending on what you do, task team members make way less than what they deserve. Cashiers with more experience than others should get paid more, especially more than minimum wage. (And $.50 is not a promotion.)
    -The fact that cashiers get yelled at for $3.50 off $10 coupons not working on products such as Urban Decay or Dermalogica. They should start publishing in the ads what actually falls under "prestige brands" and "hair artistry brands".
    -Hours fluctuate. I would work 34 hours one week and 20 the next week.
    -As a cashier, you're mostly scheduled alone. Because of that, you can't leave the registers to help a customer find an item, and the prestige brand associates are usually busy.
    -You can be scheduled for 7 and a half hours, but end up leaving after 8 on a busy day, but with no 30 minute break, only a 15.
    -Some managers were rude and disrespectful, not helpful at all.
    -The discount wasn't completely terrible, but definitely not enough.
    -Some coworkers came from Sephora and would talk about all the free gratis they got, whereas we got virtually none from Ulta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the types of managers you're hiring and look at your associates too. Some of us actually worked really hard but get no recognition. I feel bad for some of my old coworkers that are stuck there.
