    Urban Behavior was good when they had a vision and were operating as a business

    Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Canton, OH

    ProsIt was a small Company that was easy to deal with corporate on an every day level.

    ConsUnfortunately the Company shut most stores down in the U.S. It was not portrayed to employees until just before, so a lot of trust was lost in the end by several. Before the Business issues, it was not a bad place to work and a shame it didnt take a chance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot much to say since business is no longer there

    Farmington, CT

    ProsThe store carries fashionable clothing
    Good employee discount
    Supportive Management that provides guidance
    Good first job (a little above minimum wage)

    ConsNo real growth potential within the company (unless your willing to spend years climbing)
    Don't get to choose your own hours (part-time)
    Other sales associates can be very unprofessional

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate Management should part take in the interview process in order to maintain consistent brand image.
    There are managers that can act quite unproffesional

    Work you to the bone.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Hamilton, ON (Canada)

    ProsDiscount on clothing
    Mall Hours
    Some Medical

    ConsNo security tags.
    No security cameras.
    Would work alone for hours while being in charge of merchandising, fitting rooms, cash, greeting and sales.
    Head Office staff would often send out tasking jobs and then notify us to ignore it after we've already changed the store around.
    You can't move up unless you be buddy buddy and fake to upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your staff. When there is a problem and they go to you for assistance, somehow it gets turned around and the staff member is made to look like they're not being part of the team. They are in fact trying to keep the team together and trying to keep the store above water.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place to work

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsThe staff were very friendly and helpful. Customer service is top priority. The customer base is young but respectful. The discount offered was incredible 40% off of retail. The visual merchandising was well thought out and made for a lot of traffic through the store.

    ConsThe room for immediate advancement was limited. the store is based out of Canada so they are still in the infant stage in the US. Therefore advancement would cause for a major move across country or crossing over the border.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management style was very effective. The one thing that could be approved upon would be an increase in store managements salary's. The manager I worked under , was extremely hard working averaging 60- 70 hrs a week for peanuts. I believe that their pay should reflect the amount of hours they work more efficently.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
