We'd start off by checking the store out to see if anything needed to be cleaned or put back into place, after we open the store and help out as many customers as possible and maintain the store in the process. What I've learned working there was to always be as polite as possible because you'll never know who you'll meet. Management was great, although they made me feel welcomed they also made sure that we knew when it was go time. The vibe of the store was great even when it was hectic, it was still fun. The hardest part for me were the hours but the most enjoyable part was the people I worked with, they were great.

It was a decent place to work for a summer job. I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed much past that. With so many managers there were too many figure heads to report to which made it difficult to do your job.

Decent pay, unorganized company. No work life balance, no stability. The food was great, and the customers made the day go by fast. The work environment was too tense, and the communication between management and staff was poor.

Working in UO is a great experience. You are constantly broadening your creative side, the company encourages its employees to reveal their skills, to express themselves, welcomes people who differ from the crowd and are unique and creative. The working day is considerably busy but very enjoyable since your are surrounded by friendly, diverse and open-minded people who make you feel like home.

UO was a lot of fun. It is a unique store that allows you to express yourself. The team I first worked with was great! Welcoming, energetic, responsible with a lot of strive to make the store grow. Slowly people started leaving including managers, that it was not fun or a good place to work. New managers started caring less, hiring associates with out properly training them, or just being lazy and not doing the job properly.

Everyday you work a set 8 hour schedule unless asked to work over time, in which you will be expected to work 10 hours by showing up an hour earlier and leaving an hour later. I have learned a lot about how distribution centers work. The management is very professional and try to create a good work environment for their staff. The management is also willing to work around days off that are needed. The hardest part of the job is during peak season, employees are expected to work for weeks strait at a time with no days off and most days will be 10 hour days. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you are left alone as long as you do your job. Also, there are bonuses and incentives offered for different things and the company is very generous with vacation and personal days.

I was in charge of working the floor most days, so I would rerack and reorganize clothes and attend to customers, which was the most important part. The store was very focused on customer satisfaction and loss prevention, so working with people was a must. The employees were very lax and fun and I enjoyed my time. The breakroom was a bit small.

Sales Associate/Register Aid (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 24, 2017
I loved working for Urban Outfitters. I had the best managers and coworkers. I learned to work in a team, to value others opinions, to accept work culture. I am still friends with everyone I worked with there. One of the most enjoyable places I've worked at.
