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

Pros

great employee discount, friendly co-workers, awesome ambiance/atmosphere. The customers were generally younger and not nitpicky

Cons

Management was inefficient and irresponsible. They would also hire friends who were just completely incompetent and also didn't fit the brand "image" (the amount of prepsters working there was a huge turn off)

    Pros

    Open dress code, friendly coworkers, AMAZING employee discount, fashionable clothing and accessories

    Cons

    There are very few chances for advancement, especially if you start as just a sales associate. Raises are almost as hard to obtain. One must work there for several years to even be considered for a promotion, which usually doesn't include a raise.
