    I worked at Urban Outfitters part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The discount is great Clothes are cute Usually coworkers are nice

    Cons

    The pay is barely above minimum wage, so it would be good for a high schooler who needs a little money? but they don't even hire until you're 18. Management didn't really allow for much growth, I had a lot of experience but was never allowed to use the POS system The company makes a huge profit so they can definitely afford a higher wage for the sales associates The stylist for DFW was incredibly rude and treated the sales associates like trash, it was a well known fact no one liked her.

    I worked at Urban Outfitters part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers and the laid-back atmosphere. The work was simple, routine, and you get a great discount. The company also really encourages employees to garner opportunities and wants them to move up in the company!

    Cons

    Man, the turnover is quick here. This fact is probably exacerbated because my store was in a college town, but it was hard to get close to people when there were new employees cycling in and out. Also, I worked here when they still implemented "on-call" shifts. Those were a major source of stress for me. I was a college student, but I can't imagine what I would have done if I had a kid I needed to figure out child-care for.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, theres room to grow, employee discount is great, awesome store managers.

    Cons

    Inconsistent scheduling: goes from 35 hours a week to 10 hours a week, a lot is expected of you for very low pay, high-level management visits a lot but doesn't care about employees. Management expects employees to be on top of loss prevention, yet there often aren't enough employees to maintain the store while doing this.

    I worked at Urban Outfitters part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great discount, access to more merch that may be in the back stock still. Only recommend to work there for a short period to get your discount.

    Cons

    Working hard while others slack, a lot of favoritism but that’s normal now in days in any place of work but that’s not what struck a nerve. A lot of racial profiling going on to point where as a minority you’re uncomfortable but in ways not surprised as you’re own experiences you how it goes. They try to seem diverse by hiring other minorities of all colors to seem current and ”awoke”. But the sad reality is it’s a cover up.
