Too stick to yourself
Always worry about your binder and making money because everyone else is working their position and isn't focusing on you. I would have loved to not ran into someone from highschool. It's very calm other than that I just have the worst luck!

Great place to work, but could not make a living.
I love working at Ulta! The people and environment work outstanding. Working every weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and holiday but Christmas Day and barely making ends meet while living with my mom is what ultimately led me to look for work elsewhere.

Good Part Time Job
4 years, but its not a great place to work part time if you're looking to stay there for a while, all depends on what location you're at....................

Could have more learning
Could use better management. Usually management is children who don’t know makeup. The reason I’ve stayed is because I love my Clinique boss. If it weren’t for her I don’t know.

Productive and Fun Workplace
Everyday is never the same Very Enthusiastic Environment Learned the different products and the purpose of each one Learned to drive sales and customer loyalty The hardest thing working at Ulta was going beyond our exceptional quota and bringing our sales higher than the goal Most enjoyable was working with a great team and accepting gratis

Very fast paced and enjoyable
Love the feeling of being somewhere with a group of women and not to be judged and everyone welcomes you with open arms. Of course you have your days but working here with the big group of women I had the privilege to work with was amazing.

Dallas DC Suck Go GreenWood In.
I started out at the ULTA DC in GreenWood Indiana.. Go GreenWood.. Which I wish I would have stayed. But amywhoot Once I found out they was building in Dallas Tx, I looked at it as a advancement opportunity. So I learned all I could at the GreenWood DC with hopes of becoming in a leadership role at the Dallas DC. Boy was I wrong. GreenWood DC sent me to the Dallas DC to help with Ramp up ((Grand Opening ECT.)) Little did I know once I transferred and Moved ( Relocated) to the Dallas DC Almost every one in the DC even management and 60% of the Workers had came from a Target DC which mean upper Management had already promised growth. Dallas DC management was cut throat no matter who I talked to even HR it was a no go so I ended up quitting. I loved the DC in GreenWood In. I was just sick of the weather and was ready for change with a fair opportunity of growth over All I loved working for ULTA ..Dallas DC was just Cut throat and was doing underhanded things and I didn't want the drama of calling corporate ..

What's the dress code like?
Asked Feb 20, 2017
Great! I normally wear all black anyways and you can do white tops to. Also around the holidays October- New Years we could wear jeans I work timberlands and uggs and sherry’s when working the floor. Truck nights I wore sweats or yoga pants and some jordans

At the Ulta I worked at, I spent $80 dollars a week on shoes trying to find the right ones that wouldn’t infuriate the general manager. She didn’t let me wear khaki colored Toms, bearpaw moccasins or slip on vans. The only shoes she didn’t mind were flats with no arch support at all, or heels. BOTH which are AWFUL for your feet when you’re standing for very long periods of time, not receiving breaks you’re legally supposed to get. I had problems with my feet for 2 months after quitting due to the shoes they had us wear.
