"Chill job, closing sucks"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Houston, TX

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

Pros

Cool people - interesting, fun, unique styles, sense of humor
Trendy clothes
Fantastic discount at UO, Free People, and Anthropologie
No dress code, wear what you want

Cons

Dust from all of the knick knacks
They'll keep you late into the night for closing
Cleaning up after customers, especially in the sale section
Most product knowledge has to be based off of your own experience with the product (for example, with fitting or how well some gadget works) -- they don't tell you much about the products so when customers have questions you pretty much have to give them your best guess...

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

    Pros

    Learned how to handle tough situations and customer service

    Cons

    Poor wages, terrible (long) hours, poor management

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff better and pay better, especially if you are keeping them past 10:00. I was there until 3 AM once, no overtime or anything. I was a part time sales associate--unacceptable.
