I worked at Urban Outfitters full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I thought I had it bad at Urbn. I worked there around 3 years and left for a higher paying position. Once I started the new position I realized how great it was there. You get freedom to design interesting things and a lot of say goes into the garments. The campus is beautiful and they do a lot of great things so their employees: summer party, huge Christmas party, dogs at work, shuttle, bikes for using around campus.
The management is pretty great. Some really amazing people work there and getting to know them really makes you into a better worker.

Cons

You get vastly underpaid. There is little room to move up and the hours can be very long. Depending on what department you work in you may work until 8or9 pm daily.

Advice to Management

    I have been working at Urban Outfitters part-time

    Pros

    There's a lot of flexibility in scheduling and tasks. If you're serious about working at Urban, there are numerous opportunities for development and promotion. I've been fortunate enough to work at a great store with a fabulous team; other stores aren't always as great.

    Cons

    It's retail, so the pay is less than great. Also, the management really makes the store. Once again, I've been super fortunate to have such incredible store and department managers, and they really made the experience positive. There are bouts of turnover, but that's typical of the industry.
