    I have been working at Urban Outfitters

    Pros

    URBN in general are such a great brand, I was working for the Urban Outfitters UK Homeware team as a buying intern in 2017. I was surrounded by lovely colleagues that I got along well with, which looked great on my CV. Great discount and paid travel expenses.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid, which is even more difficult living and working in London and their computer softwares are rather outdated and confusing to use. As someone who worked for free, I was given much more work than an intern should take on, however once i spoke about this to my manager, she sorted out this issue.
