Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 11 January 2018
Staff can be quite mean behind your back (including management). management can tend to think they're superior to everyone - stuck up depending on your shift that day, you could be working in back stock the whole day without really interacting with anyone. can be extremely boring when theres no customers.
staff discount is one of the few things going for it good music is played in the store and it's nice selling things you like the look of/are interested in
The staff and majority of the management are nice. Its a fast paced environment so endurance is needed. The job has improved my people skills and I enjoy making people's day by finding them the right item.

The modern vibe of the store is engaging and exciting, despite the management failing to provide equal and fair timetables. The team and the people that work there are great people, you feel like a family after 2 weeks
I found such a job worked will during my time of studying. As the hours and rota were both flexible and decent. A job like such allowed me to gain a little extra income and never required high amounts of stress levels, even though it was a fast place environment.

Working at Urban Outiftters entitles you to many benefits such as the discount and rewards. The staff are friendly and you are never stuck one on department, they allow you to change positions such as working from on the tills, to working on replening and shop floor.

I felt that this company was a great one to work for, however the staff were not very inviting to new staff. The benefits are good, however the job takes up A LOT of time, especially is having to travel by bus.

Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Manchester City Centre, Greater Manchester – 24 July 2017
Urban Outfitters is the first job I have felt comfortable in especially with having such a big passion for the brand so it has been a pleasure working here for the added bonus of the wonderful discount. I have made some amazing friends for life and have gained new skills from working here. The downside is that I have learnt certain skills but haven't progressed in the company and many new starters seem to be getting more opportunities. They also have just employed lots of new staff but cut all current staffs hours, this is a great inconvenience for I and my other employees that have just left university and are in need of full time work.
laid back; friendly environment; gain confidence; new skills
hours too short; poor management; not much progression for part timers
