    Overall a good company &environment to be apart of. The management is like a hierarchy & needs a lot of improvement.

    Feb 27, 2016 - Visual Sales Associate in Columbus, OH

    Pros

    I was a visual sales associate, which is a very complicated role. At the store I worked in, I was very grateful with how they utilized me within the first year of working there. I was 100% dedicated to merchandising & display work. Being apart of the team that creates the visual aesthetics in the store is a great experience. The overall team is typically a great set of people to be around & work with.

    Cons

    The communication between district managers, store management, and associates is awful. They continually mention how they are all about promoting people from within the company. However, in reality it's a popularity contest. If you're friends and get along with the "higher-ups," you'll most likely move up & advance a lot quicker. If they are not in favor of you, they find anyway possible to get rid of you. In the 2+ years I worked there, I saw many associates as well as managers "bullied" out of the company. Therefore, the turnover rate is extremely high, especially with management. Like I said, within the 2+ years I worked there, I went through 2 store managers, 3 visual managers, and countless department managers.

    Pros

    Most everyone is friendly, funny and creative. Fast-paced environment makes the day go by quicker. Great benefits for employees.

    Cons

    Not much room for upward mobility unless you play your cards right and suck up to the right people. Some people were just strange, but they were very good with customers.

    Associate

    Pros

    The girls they hire are generally optimistic and have bubbly personalities so it is easy to get along with your colleagues. Easy to access by public transit because of the central location near Powell Street Bart, so even if you work the very early shift that begins at 6am or late shift that ends at midnight, you will probably find a bus that is still running.

    Cons

    It is a retail job for mostly college-age young women so they pay is not great, but better than comparable retail businesses. Management is a bit 'young' (not by age but by management expertise), so sometimes conflict is inevitable. This is further escalated by the very young (in age) staff. I understand that it's hard to invest into managers-in-training since retail has such a high turnover rate and people will leave for better paying opportunities. However, even if your extensive 'management style and structure' training yields 1 or 2 managers who are very capable of leading and steering the other managers in the right direction, I say it is enough of a ROI.

    Pay is less than it should be.

    Display Coordinator Position

    Pros

    Great that they promote out-of-the-box thinking artistically and fellow DC's are usually all very helpful and very genuinely nice people. Believe it or not, the health package is also very good with URBN INC. and this of course includes Anthro. They very often promote from within as well and if you just take a job as a sales associate as a seasonal or side job with no aspirations to advance, then this is the best retail store to work for hands down.

    Cons

    Your success in the position relies heavily on the abilities of your Visual Manager, so if he/she is no good, you are no good. Also, they have unrealistic timelines for some of the projects to be completed so as a bit of advice, GET INTERNS, they help a lot. Lastly, the company seems to chew through upper management like an International Harvester. When I was there--for two years--I had 4 Store Managers, 3 Home Managers, 2 Visual Managers, and 4 Apparel Managers.

    Steep discount, wonderful coworkers

    Pros

    I very much enjoyed my time working part-time at the New Orleans, LA location of Anthropologie. I met the most wonderful people during my time there and the employee discount is surprisingly steep.

    Cons

    On-call shifts are the absolute worst. They make it very hard for part-time sales associates to effectively plan their time and creates a bad work/life balance.
