    I have been working at Anthropologie part-time

    Pros

    -The customers are more polite than any retail store I’ve worked in.
    -Management team is really fun to work with and care about you as a person
    -Fantastic discount
    -Surrounded by great quality products that you feel proud to help sell
    -Feels like home

    Cons

    -Sometimes there is an additional percentage off sale and that drives in the more rude and impolite customers. Still not bad enough to complain about. I just didn’t want to leave this blank!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on caring about your customer associates and lower employees the way you do! I love working here and I feel so safe and happy when I’m at work!

    I have been working at Anthropologie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very generous discount across all brands, dressing up for work, great PTO and benefits plan

    Cons

    The brand itself is great but if you have a bad SBL (Anthro's fancy way of saying store manager), your experience will be terrible. I had the best time working there and then a new SBL came to my store and things got so bad that I had to leave the company

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to "lower" management more. DSMs and Supervisors don't feel like their voice is being heard. The company also needs to take more time to properly train SBLs and management in general. My SBL was so immature and tactless that she made several employees cry on the sales floor and dread coming to work. I think this could have been avoided with better management training.

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

    Pros

    Like most retail jobs, the experience is really made if you have a great team. The discount is amazing, there is a lot of opportunity for growth depending on the store - it can be really easy to move up from associate to senior.

    Cons

    Like other retail jobs, corporate constantly changes policies, doesn’t communicate policy changes well, and communication can get sloppy since many stores are functioning with a large team.

    I have been working at Anthropologie part-time

    Pros

    I love getting to be creative at my job and be surrounded by beautiful things. I also like to interact with customers and help them with whatever I can. I enjoy my co-workers and working with my hands. The discount is great.

    Cons

    Not exactly regular work hours so you might work a lot of evenings (5-10pm). It's hard to not spend your paycheck on clothes.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training newbies.
