    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

    I love the fact that Ulta has decided to place MAC cosmetics in their newer stores just so everyone can get to experience a MAC makeover, lesson, brand new products. Customers can now come into an Ulta and pair their favorite items with now MAC itemS as well. I love that I’m in a store that I learn about hair, skin, different types of makeup brands.

    Cons

    It needs to be a clearer direction when it comes to the 30/60 makeup applications. We do get clients that will try to “ scam” us to pay less. Although we’re consider prestige, management tends to make us color match in mass and do other jobs that takes us away from our boutique. I wish we get the full Mac benefits and trainings but we don’t.

    Advice to Management

    To learn how to help our boutiques. They cannot expect us to make our sales if we continue on getting asked to do matching in mass area, they should teach their beauty advisors and themselves how to shade match.
