    Pros

    Discount! Company Culture and vibe! Lots of awesome people to work with, with diverse backgrounds! they like to promote from within, so lots of opportunity for growth in company.

    Cons

    pay isn't that great as part time, but management is paid very generously

    Advice to Management

    Management styles vary sometimes and it causes a lack of communication, but overall they have an open door policy and very perceptive to needs and concerns.

    Pros

    Work in a beautiful place, surrounded by gorgeous products and clothing. They offer a very good employee discount. Most of the employees I worked with were wonderful people! You also get to switch what you are doing about every hour which is nice!

    Cons

    Long hours of being on your feet, and unfortunately I spent most of the time organizing the sales section which was particularly popular at our store.

    Pros

    Very cheerful and creative atmosphere, lots of opportunity for upward growth in the company. Rewards those who work hard.

    Cons

    Hours are very subject to how well the store is selling product.

    Advice to Management

    Make friends, employees treated like equals are more likely to work hard for you and help you meet your goal.

    Pros

    I was a visual display intern at Anthropologie for three months. I loved every second of it. I felt even as an intern I was given lots of creative freedom and responsibility. The work environment in the store was great too, my mentor taught me a lot and allowed me to ask question and learn from him.

    Cons

    I wish it was easier to get a fulltime job within the headquarters in Philly.

    Pros

    Truly the only reason to stay is if you're there for the discount. If you're there to support yourself, good luck!

    Cons

    The pay is a joke. For such high end product, the pay should reflect what you're selling. The wage you get there is comparable to a fast food joint. Even worse in some cases! You are on your feet all shift and running back and forth through the store. Managers don't like to see you "just standing" so you constantly have to make yourself look busy. On call shifts will turn up on your schedule making it nearly impossible to plan out your week. Schedules are also sent out way too late and only give you a week of notice for your shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, on call shifts are cruel and unusual. The fact that associates can have entire weeks with just on call shifts making up their schedule is a disgusting joke. There are associates who live off of these paychecks and it is ridiculously inconsistent and insulting. For the amount of work we do we should be fairly compensated. Thanks for the good monthly discount, but I would rather have a better paycheck.
