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

    Pros

    Great people to work with Fun environment to work in They see when you’re a good, hard worker and reward that for sure. I was there for about 3 or 4 months when I was asked if I was interested in moving up and was given more hours in comparison to others. Good pay, a good bit more than minimum wage.

    Cons

    Dress code was a little ridiculous for working truck. It was unrealistic considering the manual labor that we did for truck, it was basically paying to ruin good clothes.

    I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good energy, fun environment with a lot of people who have a genuine interest in beauty. Awesome work-life balance, and I could always get the time off to do things I wanted to do

    Cons

    Too many stylists were hired in the salon for my location. There weren’t enough new clients to go around: everyone ended up stocking shelves or doing retail, when we wanted to be behind the chair. It was a new location with too many new hires, so everyone got their hours slashed. The majority of the stylists ended up leaving.
