Pros

Great employee discount!
Perfect for a part time job (late nights and weekends) while working a fulltime job or in between school breaks (spring, winter & summer break)

Cons

For getting hired and growth within the company its about who you know. Its a bit clique-ish

    I worked at Urban Outfitters part-time for more than a year

    Cons

    Lots of micromanagment with highly volatile managers
    Late closing times
    Black friday
    Poor reward system for continued service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the loyal, they are probably there because they want to contribute more to the brand. Not just sell t-shirts

    I worked at Urban Outfitters part-time for 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
