Worst place I've ever worked.
Okay so, the whole look of working for Urban Outfitters looked great. I'm very into fashion, streetwear all that, so you'd think working somewhere like Urban Outfitters would be the greatest thing. Not at all, the interview was fun, it was a group interview, no dress code for it, just wear what you'd wear day to day, or to fit the look of Urban. I did get a call back the next, which was very exciting.
Right, now the Urban Outfitters I was at was Oxford Circus, the one literally opposite the station, it is hella big. BUT! They had like a million managers, it was very unorganised, I had no rota, I literally had to keep calling up to find out when I'm in next, the people working there aren't friendly at all, unless you get put with a set person to train with, everyone else literally are up their own a*s, it was very awkward. You can't leave on the time you're suppose to leave at, you have to wait for you floor manager to come tell you when you can leave, and each time I was there, I'm staying extra time I'm not getting paid for. You won't have a set lunch time either, you have to also wait. Talking to the girls in the changing rooms, they've all said they hate it there, couple cut down their hours, some even was planning on leaving. I wasn't there for long, but I definitely wasn't about to stay any longer.
I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here long term unless you are a very very patient person, antisocial or up your own a*s ha.
