    I worked at Anthropologie

    Pros

    supportive and dynamic company, generous in vacation days as a starting employee and awesome benefits. Great company to be promoted with and grow with.

    Cons

    Low compensation compared to other higher end retailers. Having an unreliable and monthly schedule makes planning ahead difficult and sometimes frustrating.

    I worked at Anthropologie part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They only hire nice people, you may not click with all of them, but every associate I worked with was incredibly kind!
    You get a great discount with the company, as well as all other stores under the URBN umbrella. (Urban, Free People, BHLDN, etc....)

    Cons

    Management tries their best when it comes to communication, but on the whole falls short.

    I have been working at Anthropologie part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love everyone I work with-- including my managers. Great environment, and great customers!

    Cons

    The biggest problem I have with Anthropologie is the cutting of shifts. If they are low on payroll, they will either cut your shift all together, send you home early, or ask you to come in for only half of the shift. High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your associates, and be compassionate with the shift cutting.

    I worked at Anthropologie part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved working with a large team since there were many other associates and managers to communicate with and get help from. There was definitely room for growth, but there were no said ways of what goals could be attained in order to get a higher position. Leadership was great, the managers were really nice and helpful. Compensation was minimum wage which was okay, but we got a 40% discount and 60% on a few items and 25% on home goods.

    Cons

    Challenges would be the way they make their schedules, which is not effective at all. You have hard shifts, and then a few on-calls during the week, which was hard being a student and having to be ready at any moment to leave to go to work. Other cons would be getting time-off, since there are a lot of employees working in the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make better schedules and have a more close-knit culture from store to store!

    I have been working at Anthropologie part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really great and diverse coworkers, beautiful work environment, a lot of independence for individual employee and the store to make decisions about priorities, design and layout, outfitting, etc., a focus on outstanding customer service that allows employees opportunities to really connect with customers, involvement of store in the community, and a really great discount!

    Cons

    Can sometimes be difficult to advance/be promoted, minimum wage and limited working hours makes income fairly low which is not sustainable for everyone

    I worked at Anthropologie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Anthropologie is a fun and inspiring company to work for. They value individual creativity and are open to new ideas. Good discount, great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Each store and store manager is different... as a manger you might work 8-9 days in a row. It can be exhausting especially when you only get two weeks of vacation a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make it a priority to only schedule your managers 5 days in a row. It might be beneficial to have more department managers to give everyone a more manageable schedule. I would still be with Anthropologie if I could actually spend some holiday's with my family.

    Pros

    Great discount, great atmosphere, lots of staff so find people to give or take shifts from is easy

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to being promoted and if your part time, hours are always based on weekly and monthly earnings so the fluctuation can be major.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When part time and needing a certain amount of hours to maintain and honest living let employees know what they can absolutely GUARENTEE for least amount of hours schedueld.
