    Pros

    Amazing discount. It's great to play with make up and help women feel good about themselves. I loved getting a chance to try new products.

    Cons

    Nights and weekends, but that's expected with retail. There's a a lot of turnover so sometimes you need to work extra hard to make sure customers are taken care of

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time

    Pros

    No micromanagement, great people to work with

    Cons

    PAY is ridiculously low, a Walmart employee makes that as a start, we do not get bonuses, holiday pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop starving your reps!

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

    Pros

    I’m not a retail employee so I don’t have to do the retail part of the job but I still get the discount.
    The gratis I get specifically from benefit. $600 a year
    Great management at my store

    Cons

    It’s hard to build a book at my location because of the other Arch Expert

    Advice to Management

    Help the new Arch Expert build a book and recommend people go to the other new Arch experts before automatically schedule new clients with the existing Arch Expert

    Pros

    you get to work surrounded by cosmetics which is always fun! i really enjoy interacting with customers and helping them find products. the people i work with are amazing! you get a discount too!

    Cons

    i feel like the pay is a little low.. I also think it's frustrating how you don't get commission even if you make a huge sale.
