    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 worked at Ulta Beauty part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You're surrounded by cosmetics. The uniform is all black or white clothing of your own. It was nice going in there dressed up and getting to see all the new product releases. Employee discount is 20% off products.

    Cons

    We were often understaffed. A lot of pressure to get customers to sign up for a credit card. Hourly wage is very low for what you have to do. No set schedule for part time workers and you can be called in at any time.

    Pros

    -employee discount -flexible hours -(my management at least) is amazing, i have heard other things though

    Cons

    -not much to do as a BA. you pretty much stand at cash wrap, check people out, do damages, and face. when it’s not busy it’s extremely hard to find things to do as you cannot leave cash wrap and managers get mad when you don’t do anything.
