    I worked at Ulta Beauty

    Pros

    will pay you what you want, health insurance is great, employee discount is decent, fun to work with so many different beauty products drug store/ high end, working with a salon is interesting and great salon discounts

    Cons

    Hours given for scheduling change each week based on LY and current trends, never enough people on staff, very little life outside of work (you will go home exhausted because it will be you and 2 associates for the entire store. be prepared to run around like a chicken with your head cut off) the salon team and retail team are not very connected, and can have blurred lines as to who does what.

    I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay. You will get your hours. 10hr and 12hrs shifts nights and weekends. Most work is not heavy lifting.

    Cons

    You have to keep your production rate up, and to keep moving for 12 hrs will burn you out quick. Brand new building and the WMS slows down hourly to update which slows down the RF units and slows your production, but you are still required to make up for this 10 min delay by working faster. Tote and box jams are constant, and case erector does not work consistently.
