Urban has been very good to me. I've grown within the company and have a clear path and goals to keep on doing so.

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

Pros

Flexibility
Growth opportunity
LIfestyle oriented
Open door policy
Non discriminatory
Mentorship Program
Internships
Structured but not overbearingly so.
Creative freedom
Management style variation
Communication oriented
and much more.
Positive reenforcement
Goal driven

Cons

I've yet to find any definite cons. I personally believe that each employee has their own experience and most who have a negative one (experience) is due to their own work ethic. The way the company works is that if you are not driven and/or have a negative attitude , you will not receive the same respect/ responsibilities/ freedoms as the people who are invested in the company and want to be there (as in any job.) It is what you make it.

    Pros

    The only pro is the discount.

    Cons

    Multiple managers (of all levels) didn't allow employees to take their allotted break on nights where they felt we were going to have a rough closing. Worked more than a few 9-12 hour shifts with only a 10 minute break.

    Little consistency in scheduling - closing the store for 6 hours (after the gate is locked) for a low wage, only to have to return in the early morning for your next shift.

    Inappropriate comments from managers regarding employee's personal clothing style.

    Every employee is a suspected thief, while customers walk out of the store with stolen merchandise daily and some management look the other way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect labor laws and the efforts of your employees. If you want good work for $8.50 an hour, you may want to give employee's a reason to stay.
