    Pros

    you get great discounts on merch, an inside look at the latest trends and a better understanding of the brands/products. you get to meet and interact with people daily (both customers and co workers) , and urban's "peers helping peers" policy makes it easier to get the hang of things. overall UO does a good job of doing things to acknowledge/engage their employees and getting you involved/motivated

    Cons

    due to customers, the job can be very repetitive and counter productive; at times it can be frustrating to try to meet your shift goals and standers for the area your assigned to. it's a really fast pace job most of the time, so don't get the idea that it's "laid back" or "easy" and there's a good amount of information that you need to learn nearly right away. then of course, there's dealing with those difficult customers that you get every so often.
