  1. Retail Sales Associate

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great work environment, pleasant coworkers, and a great store discount at Anthro and URBN brands

    Cons

    "On-call" shifts are quite frustrating and many times getting enough hours can be difficult. Also continued pressure to make sales goals can impede genuine interaction with customers

    Advice to Management

    Do away with on-call shifts.

    Pros

    Great people and atmosphere. The people at this store are beyond kind. They make coming to work worth it and make the retail experience a little bit better.

    Cons

    There is a lot of irregularity in scheduling and on calls are very hard to plan for in a schedule. Thankfully the longer you are there the less on calls you get.

    I worked at Anthropologie part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great part time job. A lot of the girls are either in college/recently out of college, and are working at Anthro part time while they figure out what they want to do. There were A LOT of managers - almost too many at times, and they could be clicky, but overall it was a positive work environment. And the discount is amazing! Once a month you get sixty percent off 4 tops and 4 bottoms (including dresses). Everything else is 40% off, and house goods are 25% off.

    Cons

    Morning shifts start at 6 am and closing shifts can go past 11 pm. Which can make it very difficult to have a life. Moreover, at my store we never got our schedule more than a week in advance, so it was hard to plan long turn.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to use time more efficiently. There's no way it should take four (four!!) hours in the morning to open the store.

    Pros

    Beautiful environment, competitive pay for retail, anonymous phone line for complaints, mostly friendly atmosphere, company wide discount, low stress because we don't work on commission, just making our customer happy.

    Cons

    Advancement was difficult if the regional sales manager did not like you, even if you exceeded quarterly sales goals. The occasional cattiness also stifled teamwork. Being on call could consistently hinder any weekly plans.

    I worked at Anthropologie part-time

    Pros

    A few of the pros of working at Anthro are not limited to, but includ, good hours and opportunity for growth, positive work environment and team morale. Great employee discount and flexibility to transfer to other URBN stores.

    Cons

    While the pros outweigh the cons, some of the downsides of working at Anthro as a sales associate are the on-call shifts. Entire days would be taken by the gamble of an on-call that they may not use and will only notify you two hours prior. This made planning days off difficult.
