    I have been working at Urban Outfitters part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discount honestly and the room to grow.

    Cons

    Depending on the store, the management can be calm and collective or catty and gossipy

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent on moving up if its obvious an employee wants to do so. Don't wave a empty promise for a portion to an employee if you know your giving it to someone else. Last don't be surprised if an employee transfers to a Anthropologie or a Free People due to said position waving. If your going to cut hours to due to the favoritism of the opinion one of your "work " friends ,be transparent to the employee that your cutting hours from. Also stop hiring from Workforce1 and being surprised at the performance of said workers you get afterwards. Its a scam for them to get food stamps.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Pretty long process overall. Initial contact via email and phone interview scheduled within two weeks of applying. I was brought in for an in person, five hour interview, meeting with 5 different people, sometimes two at a time. Follow up via email from HR letting me know I was being considered and then about one a month for 4 months until the job was offered to someone else.
