Does Urban Outfitters offer dental insurance?

Pros

Great work hours, fair pay, the benefits are great with both health and dental after 90 days for full timers. The customers are typically very happy to be there.

Cons

Can get very hectic and upper management has a tendency to be inconsistent with expectations. There were a few instances of regional management coming in and treat employees of color with less respect than our white counterparts. Micoaggressions against non-white staff was a regular occurrence.

Advice to Management

Fire people when you get reports of them being racist, especially if they are upper management.

Does Urban Outfitters have a pension plan?

Pros

Some flexibility in work schedule, due to ease in swapping shifts.

Cons

Ridiculous rules in maintaining the changing rooms. Salary was below minimum in my country with no add-ons like commission. There were also no pension payments, which is extremely unusual in the resident country. Didn't pay for overtime either. Very short lunch breaks, no additional smoking or 5min breaks

Does Urban Outfitters offer employee discounts?

Pros

Great for your resume. The campus is in a pretty great location along a river in a lovely park-like setting ...which you will most likely be too busy to enjoy. Great health benefits, lots of perks like employee discount, sample sales, a free gym ...that you'll be too busy to ever use. Very relaxed dress code. You can bring your dog to work. Some friendly co-workers.

Cons

No HR department, long work hours, no time for a personal life, terribly low pay increase when you do actually receive a promotion, constant shifts in management, high turn around of employees. High stress: You cannot really manage your time because the calendar is always changing so just when you think you're on top of everything all your meetings get shifted around and you cannot easily prioritize your workload. You can easily get burnt out in such a fast paced, speed-to-market driven environment and ever-increasing workload.

Advice to Management

Slow down, respect your employee's time, and be consistent with your deadlines and calendar.
