What does your typical day look like?

I would consider a typical day for me at Ulta to be very atypical. Every day is different; filled with new challenges and surprises as things move at the speed of light. So, what is typical? Because Ulta has such an amazing culture of people and energy, regardless of what the day brings, you will end the day knowing you work at an awesome place.
