    Pros

    The store carries fashionable clothing
    Good employee discount
    Supportive Management that provides guidance
    Good first job (a little above minimum wage)

    Cons

    No real growth potential within the company (unless your willing to spend years climbing)

    Other sales associates can be very unprofessional

    Advice to Management

    Corporate Management should part take in the interview process in order to maintain consistent brand image.
    There are managers that can act quite unproffesional

    Former Employee - Store Manager in Canton, OH

    Pros

    It was a small Company that was easy to deal with corporate on an every day level.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the Company shut most stores down in the U.S. It was not portrayed to employees until just before, so a lot of trust was lost in the end by several. Before the Business issues, it was not a bad place to work and a shame it didnt take a chance.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say since business is no longer there

    - Very busy store for few sales associates
    - Looks like they hired a lot of people, but not enough people working when needed

    Advice to Management

    - Know your staff and value them
    - You're losing good people that were willing to work for you
    - give appropriate shifts

    I have been working at Urban Behavior part-time

    Pros

    -Great team (of course varies by location)
    -Wage is good (varies by provincial location)

    Cons

    -Store is too big (varies by location)
    -We double tag our clothes and when a cashier misses a tag we have to remove them, which gets tiring during a busy day
    -We're constantly signing new policies, lots of paperwork
    -Don't have enough cashiers, especially on busy days which leads to a lot of customer complaints
    I'm just happy I don't work there anymore, let's put it that way. Not the most horrible job in the world but definitely not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Head Office, stop focusing so much time on inventing new policies to protect your company from theft or from whatever it is these new policies focus on and start focusing on ways to make current employees jobs easier. Up paid 10 minute breaks to 15 to 20 mins, especially on busy days. Employees cannot be helpful towards customers when they are burnt out.
