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

    Pros

    I was happy with my time there because I was able to earn money working with beautiful clothing. I think they have raised the amount they are paying their sales associates because I earned $10 an hour. The discount was fun, but I found myself spending my entire paycheck. I also really appreciated the training I received in the various part of the retail industry including cash rep, sales, and others.

    Cons

    The job could sometimes be slightly boring and the costumers could be overbearing at times. The late night and early morning shifts were very difficult.

    Company culture is fun. Made a lot of great friends. Encouraged to have fun and be energized on the job. Its an inspiring environment to work in because of the creativity and artistic vision.

    Pay was low for the hours and amount of work required. I did not mind the hours but the pay should better reflect it.

    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.

    Pros

    Fantastic customers, pleasant physical environment

    Cons

    This is a ridiculous job for anyone who has any semblance of a life. You have to give them all your free time to be able to get any working hours. They put you on call, expect you to be available, hence you can't plan your day, and never call you in. They cancel part of your shift that is actually scheduled too as well as send you home before your scheduled shift is over. You have to be a couch-sitter, home watching Judge Judy(sorry Judge), to take this job. I guess I should have read these reviews more carefully, and believed them, before taking the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you valued your sales staff and treated them like they weren't idiots, you would have a much higher quality of employee and a higher retention rate. Hence, more revenue and a better return for your shareholders.
