Pros: culturally stimulating, great feeling of ownership
Cons: heavy workload, sometimes slow growth opportunities
I have worked in retail management at various different companies and this division of Urban Outfitters, Inc stands out amongst the rest in its creative environment, love of culture, putting clients first and excellent procedures. I would recommend anyone interested in high end retail to work there. They treat their employees as the invaluable assets that they should be, treat their clients as top priority and give considerable compensation for hard work. It is a moderately heavy workload (each store runs as its own small business with employees doing everything from complicated display setups to training to its own marketing) but this fosters learning and responsibility wonderfully.
