    Pros

    Amazing company! They treat employees well, you build great relationships, it's a fun work environment, and you get an amazing discount! I really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    I couldn't get many hours at my store. They had recently hired a ton of new employees so the hours were very competitive and I would sometimes work only 4-6 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring new employees! One of the reasons I didn't return to Anthropologie to work was because I did not feel like I would be able to get the hours I need now.

    Pros

    start at above minimum wage, great discount, great company culture, opportunities for promotion from within, visual display assistance, no commission

    Cons

    There isn't much I would tell Anthro to change after my own experience. While I don't work there, I never feel like I left the family. It was nothing but a positive experience, and I feel that I grew and learned things that have helped me in my career now.

    Advice to Management

    Team building and positive reinforcement was key in my store. We were all very close. We had "family dinners" on Sunday nights after closing, did selling contests with prizes, and did group training exercises. We all wanted to help each other succeed, and our store was one of the best in the west coast. Management needs to be on the floor, not stuck in the office.

    Pros

    Discounts, nice group of women to work with

    Cons

    Never got any hours with the company. The on-call system screws you over After a month of working only 4 shifts, I quit because I had another opportunity that paid.

    Pros

    Fun, creative and inspiring work environment. Lots of opportunities to move up in the company if you are willing to travel/transfer to different locations. I was also able to get TONS of hours because I worked in a larger store.

    Cons

    Depending on management it can be very tricky to get one on one training. It took 8 months for my store to get around to training me on cashier when it should of only taken a few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the happiness of employees.

    Pros

    Loved working with the team - they truly became your family! Plus the discount wasn't so bad either ;)
    Opportunities to be creative and work on the visual team and displays.
    The clothes!

    Cons

    Not having a regular work schedule or being able to get the days off you need can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    It can be hard to manage your peers, but other than that, they did a pretty good job at my store.

    Pros

    You learn a ton about designers, fits, and styling techniques.. and you get to use what you learn to continue improving your own personal style. The employee discount is AMAZING and your life and closet will become so much more beautiful! The people who work here are pretty cool, as it attracts a creative, people-oriented, and open-minded crowd. They rotate your jobs during the day so you typically don't get stuck in one place all day. They ask you what you enjoy the most and try to accommodate your work day around it. You have meetings every opening and closing time and feel really in the loop and on the same page. Management wants you to succeed, and they don't treat you as lower than them!

    Cons

    Because it's high-end fashion and we're capable of doing almost anything for our customer, the clientele can be really demanding and entitled sometimes. There were times I had to step off of the floor and regain composure for a while, because some people were so incredibly rude. But, management always supports the associates and had our back!


  10. Loved working here, everyone is so welcoming and dedicated to making you feel comfortable and prepared.

    Pros

    Beautiful store, fun coworkers and really beautiful and interesting visual merchandising. Definitely not looking at the same thing over and over again!

    Cons

    It gets really busy during peak hours and especially during holiday season. But this is to be expected at any retail shop I guess. My feet were tired after long days.
