    I have been working at Anthropologie part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Warm team, collaborative, fast-paced. Great store discount.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, fluctuating schedule, having to wear uncomfortable but stylish shoes on unfinished wood floors is not ideal.

    I worked at Anthropologie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The store and brand are beautiful. Super inspiring environment, proud to offer lovely products and brands. The discount is awesome.

    Cons

    It's a girls club. If you aren't a 'girls girl' and enjoy a female dominated environment, do not work here. Felt like high school at times. Very competitive and gossipy.

    If you have a managerial job title, odds are you won't be doing much pertaining to the job title. You have to just do whatever upper management asks and hope one day you get promoted.

    Want to be on the visual team? Good luck. It's like an exclusive club. They didn't seem to care about my visual arts degree, experience or talent. Was told I need to care most about team building and reaching hourly sales goals. Artists usually aren't great at managing teams of girls.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people's talents and gifts! Utilize them to contribute to the artistic vision of the brand and products. Communicate effectively! Give feedback in a kind, constructive manner, give praise for a job well done.

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, easy to manage your time being full or part time.

    Not a big con but you have to keep up with the fashion trends and it can cost a bit of money.

    Explain things more in depth instead of assuming we know everything.

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

    Pros

    Good discounts on certain clothes, but not all the clothes that they want you to wear to work in.

    Cons

    Low pay, no schedule consistency, get your scheduled 3 days before the week starts, they hire so many people at a time, that it can be hard to get many hours, not very many positions are full time, and it is rare that new employee are given formal training.

    Advice to Management

    Formal trainings and schedule consistency, and give schedules far earlier a month in advance.

    Pros

    The company discount was amazing. The sisterhood of the employees was great, I made some great friends during my time there. The hours were OK, sometimes shifts would get cut which was unfortunate.

    Cons

    When shifts would get cut due to it being slow.

    Advice to Management

    To not cut so many shifts and pre-plan better. No on-call shifts.
