    Pros

    They offer a generous employee discount and try to promote within the company. They are focused on individual growth and want their employees to succeed. They offer 401K benefits to part-time employees which is great!

    Cons

    Promotions are based on open positions and this may mean relocating to another store. They may not pay as much as other companies, but the experience is worth it.

    Pros

    Hourly sales floor rotation so you don't get too bored. Inspiring environment. Many opportunities to move up in position.

    Cons

    Fighting for weekly hours. Maybe it was the store I worked in, but it was difficult to get hours with so many different associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a lot of petty fighting among some of the employees, but that can be pretty common in any retail job.

    Pros

    They provide benefits for part-time employees after 1 year of employment. Employee discount at other URBN brands (Urban Outfitters, Free People...) Seems like they genuinely care for their employees.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up in the company promotion wise.

    I have been working at Anthropologie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good (for someone who didn't go to college and simply worked their way up in the company), most other employees, supervisors, and managers are pleasant, the benefits are great, lots of room for growth and even relocation

    Cons

    The same cons as any retail job- the schedule is awful, no getting around that. Obviously it's frustrsting dealing with the regular difficult customer but Anthropologie is so committed to providing good customer service and giving the customer what they want, that you have a lot of room to accommodate people's needs.... So you deal with less angry customers than other retailers.

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

    Pros

    Working with clothing was enjoyable, but I really enjoyed the social aspect of socializing with people even more. The 40% discount was wonderful, since I am a clothes horse. The staff trained me well; and, in order to learn the merchandise and store layout, I spent the first couple of weeks primarily stocking and doing inventory. Finally, the staff was friensly, interesting, and fun to work with at the store.

    Cons

    The management was lax, and the 40% discount meant I spent a bit of my paycheck at the store. More brand education would have been welcomed. I was never trained on their POS system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps, you might consider offering commission. Require all employees to learn the POS system during initial training and provide further brand education.
