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

Pros

- 40% off of clothing (the ultimate PRO)
- somewhat flexible if you give them you're availability

Asked questions like: why Urban; situation with customer example of how you would handle it. Often retail interviews are quite similar. Just dress like an UO employee would dress, wear something non revealing but in tune with their clothing. Know atleast three of the brands they sell, and be able to tell them something in detail about one of them. They asked me who my favorite designer was, and I was able to mention one of the founders of the brands they carry. Just do a 10 minute google search and you should be fine!

Cons

- management is very strict and pretty mean
- scrutinize you're ability to do all tasks
- expect a lot fast
- search you multiple times on shift, especially if closing
- closing takes about 2 hours post door locking

    Pros

    Urban Outfitters overall is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The compensation needs to be improved. Very difficult to balance full time and low pay in an expensive city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development of staff needs to be improved. Some do not get the guidance they need to move up and be a better asset.

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

    Pros

    -The clothes, obviously.
    -Discount is pretty legit: 40% off clothes/accessories, 25% off home
    -Employee Appreciation!: Window where you get 40% off everything, including SALE!
    -Managers and co-workers are the bomb dot com. Really chill and quirky atmosphere.
    -College nights were really fun: 30% off sale for showing a college id. Often had fun games, free food, and live tunes those nights.

    Cons

    -Usual retail woes: cut back on hours when the store isn't doing as well.
    -Lots of on-calls (you call 2-hours before your supposed shift to see if they need you).
    -I didn't typically get enough hours to live on consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep that positive, creative attitude. :) Just work on the hours I guess.
