The always problematic Urban Outfitters strikes again. The parent company, URBN, sent out a private email asking for salaried employee volunteers to participate in a 'team-building activity'!! aka packing and preparing packages for shipment at a fulfillment warehouse..

Part of the email reads: [Spoiler (click to open)]

“URBN is seeking weekend volunteers to help out at our fulfillment center in Gap, PA. October will be the busiest month yet for the center, and we need additional helping hands to ensure the timely shipment of orders. As a volunteer, you will work side by side with your GFC colleagues to help pick, pack and ship orders for our wholesale and direct customers.”

The Details:

Who: Home Office URBN salaried employees

I have never had a salaried job & everyone I know that has one gets taken advantage of tbh. Corporate America remains the worst.
