    I have been working at Urban Outfitters full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -starting pay of $8.00 (.75 cents above my states minimum wage)
    -you work hard and you immediately see how it pays off
    -great coworkers & amazing management
    -laid back environment
    -no dress code
    -AMAZING discount

    Cons

    -The only main con is that if you're closing, you have to stay 2-3 hours past closing time to make the store look pristine and perfect again. Once in a while, the store will do "perfect closes"- where the store is literally impeccable, and you could easily be there until 3 AM.
    -Also, if you think that by working retail you won't have to get up early, you are sorely mistaken. Openers get there anywhere from 5 am-8 am, even though the store opens at 10.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly.. can't think of how I could do it any better.

    Pros

    Its in downtown and you get introduced into the nightlife and the people included in it.

    Cons

    The parking in downtown is horrible especially on the weekend and having to deal with homeless and drunk people
