      Pros

      All 3 of the Urbans I worked in across the U.S. all had positive workplace environments and very friendly coworkers Flexible schedules Pay is usually competitive amongst other retailers and negotiable based on experience and how long you’ve worked for the company Management is usually very supportive Discount is great

      Cons

      During slow seasons be prepared to walk in circles for hours when there aren’t any customers and you’ve finished processing shipment after the first hour of your shift. It is retail so expect to have rude and disgruntled customers every now and then

      Pros

      Managers and co-workers were very chill, not very stressful at all except during holidays and rush hours. Recommend as a first time job, especially if you're a shopaholic, the employee discount is great!

      Cons

      Feels like I mostly had to learn things on my own, very minimal training. Having to be searched like a convict every time employees leave the store.

      Pros

      Discount is great. They give 3 pieces of clothing 60% off UO brand and 15% off others (I think)

      Cons

      Sone weeks I would literally get 4 hours, they did not promote POC even if they were more qualified than others, expect a lot from you although they don't recognize hard work.
