    I have been working at Ulta Beauty

    Pros

    I guess getting to play with makeup is fun. Getting to see what products are out there. That's about it.

    Cons

    We were always understaffed. Two people on the floor, manager in the back. One employee stocking shelves, and the other employee covering both the cash registers and the prestige section. Crappy minimum wage, never gave me any hours.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Management was really great to work with, so helpful and made work all around fun. If you did something exceptional you would get pick something from the gratis box (filled with makeup, bath, and skincare goodies) so that was good incentive to work hard!

    Cons

    Varied schedules, early mornings (shipment) and late nights (holiday hours), sometimes it would be so busy you wouldn't be able to take any breaks.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty

    Pros

    The Pros of Ulta Beauty was that that it was a wonderland of beauty and always something new was going on.

    Cons

    I felt in some ways that the manager was setting me up for failure. I was the Associate Manager of Operations and I only over saw shipment twice in 45 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of waiting till the end of probation and knowing that the person you hired wasn't in a lead management position try to be more approachable and leading the person you chose for the job.
