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

Pros

good people, good discount, fairly easy to move up in the company. easy college job for associates looking for some extra cash.

Cons

unrewarding work, demands full-time dedication in team-lead position, yet pays about 8 or 9 an hour. no commission. no bonuses. tough when balancing school. moving up in the company often revolves around favoritism rather than qualification.

some of the department managers are complete degenerates who come into work drunk / high. senior management ignores such problems rather than address them.

Advice to Management

pay your team-leads more, they work their asses off.

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

    Pros

    The discount is sweet as hell. (50% across the board, sale items excluded except for during christmas and some other holidays)

    Cons

    Boring, monotonous tasks. Most of the day is spend folding shirts that are not quite perfectly folded. The rest of the day is spend folding shirts that have already been perfectly folded.

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

    Pros

    Discount at Urban Outfitters, Free People, and Anthropology. Friends and Family discount cards.

    Cons

    Underpaid, terrible hours, no benefits, snobby coworkers, no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you appreciate them. One of THREE jobs I had just to survive when I first moved to LA. No benefits, no opportunity to get full time hours so I could get benefits. Just terrible.
