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

    Pros

    Met some of my greatest friends there. The managers were awesome, very transparent and we all worked together to get projects done.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work, it might be hard to get as many hours as you’d like. We had a lot of team members on our team!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Met with 3 people from buying team. Lots of red flags throughout the interview:

    - Interviewers mentioned long hours were normal, where people will also come in on the weekends to catch up on work (you do not get paid overtime)
    - A lot of previous assistants quit because job is not what they expected (high turnover rate)
    - Interviewers mentioned how crying at the office and being overwhelmed is normal for this type of role
    - The person who interviewed me last who was a higher up, came off aloof and unprepared... didn't seemed interested in me and admitted she didn't look at my resume beforehand....

    While they were being transparent, it seems like they all go with the status quo and don't find the company culture toxic at all. Like it's some type of passage to be overworked and treated poorly in order to work in fashion/retail. It's 2020 not 2010... this type of work environment should be called out and no longer be normalized in the industry.
