Pros

Great employee discount!
Perfect for a part time job (late nights and weekends) while working a fulltime job or in between school breaks (spring, winter & summer break)

Cons

For getting hired and growth within the company its about who you know. Its a bit clique-ish

    Pros

    Cons

    Lots of micromanagment with highly volatile managers
    Late closing times
    Black friday
    Poor reward system for continued service

    Advice to Management

    Reward the loyal, they are probably there because they want to contribute more to the brand. Not just sell t-shirts

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers - more like family
    Flexible with schedule. You can call out or switch shifts as needed.
    Discount
    Employee appreciation periods

    Cons

    Everything else!
    Won't get your promotion because it will be given to a manager's friend - even if you were being trained for the position first.
    Managers talk behind your back, you always feel like you're being judged on a personal level. Almost like being in high school again.
    The company is very shady about loss. They accuse people of stealing and say that they have proof when they really don't.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so shady. This isn't high school, we are adults, so act like adults.
