    Hours aren't the best for low volume stores. But that's most retail places

    Pros

    Urban's atmosphere is absolutely amazing. This was my first retail position and I'm so thankful for all the caring, friendly, and eccentric people I got to work with. The employee discount is also great if you have the need for new pieces.

    Cons

    I was working in a town store, rather than a mall, so it wasn't as busy and hours were pretty meager.
