Training is very sporadic depending on who is chosen to train you - I didn't get a lot of key information
depends on the manager but you get pretty much thrown in and not much training
People who work for Urban are very passionate about retail so job training is really strong.
Urban Outfitters uses current associates to train new-hires and honestly just kind of throw you in the water and its sink or swim. Its fairly easy to learn how to maintain the fitting rooms and greet customers.
I was trained by a fellow employee and it went well. No pressure, everyone was very helpful and patient.
You learn in the baptism by fire method.
There is onboarding but little job training unless your manager is proactive.
they train you well but thats only becuase things are very basic for the most part
exceptional and you can develop your own role and change the company with support
Job training is good because it covers a wide range of areas. Both stores I have worked at have encouraged extensive training in all departments, including operations and merchandising.
