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

Pros

-Lots of responsibility - if you want it
-Fun coworkers
-Employee discount is great
-If you play the game, you can work your way up the ranks

Cons

-They align promotions with annual raises so they don't need to do both
-The pay is not great - especially in locations outside of big cities
-Depending on the store/management, scheduling is not accessible online, and rarely done far in advance (i.e. you must drive to the store when you're off work to see when you work next)

Advice to Management

Start using security cameras if you truly have a focus on loss prevention.

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

    Pros

    Great discount. Awesome clothes and great music

    Cons

    Management doesn't even take the time to learn you name. They just view you as a body to fill space. They don't even train you on important things you need to know. Scheduling is the worst as well! I hated working there.

    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...
