Q: What is it like working at ULTA Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc.?

Salon Manager:
It was not at all what I expected. I was over worked and very very under paid as a manager. Benefits were expensive and the culture is more concerned with how things appear rather then how they really are. I have many years of management experience so I found a job doing the exact same thing with another company making a whole lot more. My advice is, ask a lot of questions and make sure that if they promise you something that you know all the little hoops you will have to jump through to get your reward.

Associate Store Manager in Maywood:
Pros: Employee discount, salon discount, decent health coverage, fun atmosphere, product offerings, gratis, room for growth, company is expanding rapidly.
Cons: Hours to expectations ratio is unrealistic, demeaning and frustrating. As a manager, you are expected to focus on the guest and giving "WOW Experiences..."but with 300 hours of payroll for 5 full-time and over 10 part time associates, it's quite the opposite. On a given day, I spend more time on the registers than anything else, when I'm supposed to be the "GEM" or guest experience manager. The GEM is in charge of helping guests on the floor, monitoring theft and continually managing sales/budgets. If I do help someone, I am grabbed by another person at once, since there's so rarely coverage on the floor. Theft is ridiculously common and a large portion of sales are lost because of it. With such open displays of fragrance (no keys, no security guards) there are legitimate career criminals who come in and wipe out thousands in fragrances within minutes. The district manager and LP manager will hold this over you, without any concrete support or ideas since they know the root cause.

Salon Manager in Asheville:
"High stress level, micromanaged, lack of training."
Pros: Salary and benefits.
