Adequate

Hair Designer II (Current Employee)
Naples, FL (US)

I have been working at Ulta Beauty full-time for more than 3 years

ProsUlta offers benefits,even if you work minimal hours. It's a fun atmosphere to work in. It's all makeup and hair products, so there's lots to play in.

ConsYou have to jump through many many hoops to qualify for benefits as a hair stylist no matter how many hours you work.
Also, there's lousy communication and accountability. Bad managers are not held accountable, and employees are often left feeling unheard and unappreciated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Hiring someone who has never worked in an Ulta only makes them numbers driven and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Mixed emotions

I worked at Ulta Beauty full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Access to new products and education on hair and skin care. In… Cons: Unfortunately the company is growing so fast that they have lost that more personal vibe. As a Salon Manager I have seen some disturbing treatment… Advice to Senior Management: There are some amazing folks in upper management. Some have reached out to me after I resigned. Please listen to your… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
