    Current Employee - Department Manager in Montreal, QC

    I have been working at Urban Outfitters full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent vibe, great culture, interesting product, great discount, varying tasks and responsibilities, creativity encouraged, open, modern, liberal, artistic, fantastic teams of educated, passionate, hard-working and motivated individuals; made good friends for life
    great opportunities for growth at store level, respected experience in the retail industry especially when coming from a high volume store

    Cons

    Hugely exploitative, super high turnover on management level, ridiculously low payroll and unrealistic expectations for the means the company supplies. Terrible working conditions: 80s technology, no cleaning services: staff wastes a lot of time cleaning high volume store instead of focusing on operations. Extremely long hours, bad schedules: ex: closing very late at night (before corporate visits often 2 or 3am) then opening at 6am the next day making for no work/life balance whatsoever and inexistent quality of life.
    Dept and store managers salaried: 10-30 hours of unpaid overtime a week depending on time of the year. Bad division of responsibility, no security surveillance in stores, on top of being a retail manager and taking care of one's department and business tons of pressure put on management teams to prevent people from stealing + professional shoplifters who make a living out of Urban Outfitters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too bad Urban Outfitters takes it's manpower for granted. Many of us would have stayed with the company for life if you didn't systematically press the most talented, driven and ambitious amongst us like lemons until all the juice had come out.
    You are incredibly privileged to be a brand that attracts a very narrow demographic of educated, intelligent talented and ambitious creatives, any company can only benefit hugely from a culture that cherishes its skilled employees instead of disrespecting and abusing them.
