    I worked at Anthropologie part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Paid well, fast paced, great products, good employee discount

    Cons

    High amount of employees (especially over the holidays), many of the staff is young and inexperienced, had to stay late (up to four hours after closing time) to organize store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great deal of the women I worked with there were not very friendly-maybe they could be more strict/insightful when hiring/promoting managers.

    Pros

    Great discount if you like shopping there. 60% off a limited amount of items for you only. Your family and a friend get discount cards also. Love the sales associates. Great group of girls! Shifts are fun. Usually they switch you around every hour so you're never bored. I really enjoy working here!

    Cons

    TONS of on-call shifts!!! Which get pretty annoying right away. If you are scheduled Saturday/Sunday morning on-call shifts you are supposed to call the night before which totally gets in the way of LIFE. On a Friday and Saturday night the last thing you want to do is call to see if you have work the next day! Management unexperienced. Turnover in management and associates is high. GO-BACKS, need to be ran during the day so that closing team doesn't get stuck with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good managers. Set the tone at the top. Lead by example. Less on-call shifts, maybe 2 at max. Overall I think the company has great potential.

    Pros

    Great clothes and the customers are not too difficult. Most of them are from out of town but they are respectful.

    Cons

    Management is not as supportive. They have their favorites and if they like you, they will put you on the schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication with employees could be better as far as what you may not like.

    Pros

    Fun training experience.
    It's all about working hard and being a team player.

    Cons

    The main manager did seem to want to help employees. I am not sure if you would even be a good reference for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't choose favorites based who you relate to most but rather on who's work ethic is the strongest.

    I worked at Anthropologie full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    surrounded by beautiful clothing and accessories, decent discount (if you're working enough to support it), fast paced.

    Cons

    management is a mess--read: "mean girls" type of group who will be super fake to your face and talk badly about you behind your back. played favorites HARD. despite having retail AND management experience, the wage they offered was a joke. they overwork and underpay the staff who have been there for years. were not understanding when i put in my notice to work elsewhere full time. self centered bunch who have no idea how to manage their staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please quit the favoritism and realize that people arent going to stay if you don't treat them well. the reason why your turnover is SO HIGH is because you don't do anything to keep the good people you hire.

    Pros

    Working at Anthropologie has been a great experience and the coworkers are always fun.

    Cons

    The managers at my specific store have favorite sales associates, are very rude to each other (always talking about each other behind one another's backs), and do not encourage the sales assistants in any way. I need encouragement to understand that I am doing my job well and correctly, but the managers point out flaws and do not encourage at all. Finally, do not expect a raise unless you are a favorite of theirs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better managers, or make sure that your "lowly sales associates" are actually cared for.
