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
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester – 15 June 2017
I felt I was left on my own quite a bit and put on the fitting rooms out of the way for most of my shifts. I tried really hard to cover all shifts even drove three hours from home on boxing day for the company and received no thanks also didn't get kept on after christmas even though I felt I was one of the strongest candidates. No jobs security at all.

Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – Oxford Circus, Greater London – 12 April 2017
My experience in retail developed a lot while working here. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the many tasks I was assigned although I adjusted quickly. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great team I worked along side.
