    Pros

    start at above minimum wage, great discount, great company culture, opportunities for promotion from within, visual display assistance, no commission

    Cons

    There isn't much I would tell Anthro to change after my own experience. While I don't work there, I never feel like I left the family. It was nothing but a positive experience, and I feel that I grew and learned things that have helped me in my career now.

    Advice to Management

    Team building and positive reinforcement was key in my store. We were all very close. We had "family dinners" on Sunday nights after closing, did selling contests with prizes, and did group training exercises. We all wanted to help each other succeed, and our store was one of the best in the west coast. Management needs to be on the floor, not stuck in the office.

    Great environment, fun atmosphere, great product, customers are easy and happy to be there

    On call shifts, low pay, not a lot of flexibility with hours, can get boring at times- standardizing is super boring!

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is amazing and management really takes the time needed to assist you in being successful at your job. You become close with your co-workers and meet interesting people from all ages.

    Cons

    The on call shifts can be a bit tedious at times especially if you aren't used. It is hard to plan your day when you may or may not have to go in.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly making more of an effort to garner relationships with stores on a personal level. Higher up management seems out of reach and far away- like it is another corporate entity of it's own away from the store level.

    Pros

    Some very creative and interesting people work for this company.

    Cons

    Very little regard for work/life balance. Politics govern promotions and growth opportunities. Do not operate with transparency.

    Pros

    The environment at Anthropologie is very creative. There is room for advancement. Pay is competitive. Discount is great - friends and family receive the discount as well.

    Cons

    The managers are not the best. They take advantage of their employees. if you are scheduled to work a closing shift, you should not be scheduled to work a morning shift the following day. They also schedule all the closing shifts (which are the most work) to the same people.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to appreciate your employees. Value the employees that are hard working, committed, and passionate about the brand.

    Pros

    learned so much about marketing, always stayed busy, gorgeous space just to exist in

    Cons

    worked to the bone physically, always waiting to work to be cancelled on by employer, felt passed over for promotion by someone outside with no retail experience who had "managed a small coffee shop" lol

    Advice to Management

    promote within if you want to keep your talent
