    I worked at Anthropologie full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generous discount, good health insurance

    Cons

    No work life balance - you are expected to work all weekend, and only enjoy 1 weekend off per month at most. Poor pay for long hours, and difficult customers. No support from corporate. Little room for advancement. Little respect for management team. Associates and managers treated as expendable which lead to high turn over rate and poor store morale. No HR. Often upper level managers are life long friends so you have no one to report behavior to.

    I worked at Anthropologie part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most associates and visual team are very friendly.

    Cons

    Where do I start ? Anthropologie and URBN left me and so many other employees and colleagues down when the COVID pandemic started, despite boasting on the social media they were and would be paying employees throughout the crisis. PLEASE BOYCOTT THIS COMPANY Management is very varied, from absolute sunshine like people, to others that are as sour as an unripe cranberry. They want you to work very long hours including weekends. They don't recognise the good work you do, but god forbid you do something wrong they will sweep the floor with you (this includes speaking to a colleague on quiet hours or not picking the phone during your break or out of contracted hours). Speaking of breaks, you only get 1 hour out of a 9hr shift, and no other break in between. They have the audacity to demand a luxury service but they pay you less than the London minimum wage (£7.20 to be exact). On top of that, the shop I worked at in London, did not have AirCon and due to its architecture, acted as a greenhouse throughout the year, making summers very though to work, and despite management passing the issue through to the head offices, NOTHING was fixed or made to ease the heat inside the shop that on good days might make thousands of pounds (imagine being on a greenhouse for 8hrs straight on a day that the average outside is 32c). URBN does not care about its employees, they will exploit you and pay you the very minimum they can. This is obviously labour.

    Pros

    Discount on Clothing and fun staff (if your particular store isnt full of awful people)

    Cons

    Poor Benefits, toxic culture, long hours, customer focused, used to have great culture and values (before they brought consultants to fire every creative role), pay was meager even if you were in expensive cities, basically your typical retail management job.
