I worked at Urban Outfitters part-time (Less than a 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

    Lots of responsibility available for younger people. Very open to new ideas. Able to progress quickly. Your voice actually matters.

    Cons

    Management's opinions can change daily. Pay for many positions can start low till you prove yourself and put in the time. Long hours when there is a deadline and there are lots of deadlines.
