      Pros

      Everyone was very nice and happy to work at Free People. They took requests for specific days off (for part time) when making the schedule and it was easy to find coverage from other stylists if needed.

      Cons

      Sometimes Stylists who are part time would get very minimal hours per week (around 12 hrs) which could be frustrating if you want more. Urban and Anthropologie also received better discounts and got to choose items which was frustrating since all three are owned by the parent company. FP could only pick a pair of shoes from what was in the store and did not have great monthly pre-chosen picks for 60% off items.
