Pros

Generally you're working with a lot of cool people - I've met some of my best friends at UO. It makes work really fun and forms some pretty tight bonds off the clock too. It's a pretty fast-paced environment and almost always something to do, especially in the bigger stores. Of course the discount goes without saying, but definitely a huge part of why I stick with the company. There's a lot of opportunity for advancement, as well.

Cons

I feel like the store is undergoing a rebranding that doesn't necessarily reflect the culture or needs of their employees or customers - this may have just been at my store, though. Work can sometimes be grueling and require long hours - especially during % off sales and perfect closes (I've been in a store til 3 AM more than once). Sometimes you get a pretentious kid who doesn't really want to work, but they generally get cut out pretty quickly. Also I feel like when a ton of people get hired at once training can get spotty. Managers rotate in and out with a lot of frequency - can lead to a lot of confusion about standards as well as hinder promotions (one manager loves you, another doesn't, etc). Not a lot of security of hours for full-time associates.

Advice to Management

Train employees more thoroughly, make sure standards are regular throughout the company. Every time I got a new SM everything right down to how we folded changed.
