    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Anthropologie (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were two steps: I was interviewed by the store manager first. It went well, the manager was very nice and friendly. Then I was scheduled an interview by 5 days later with the visual team manager. My portfolio helped a lot and the visual manager seems like it. Now I'm still waiting for the answer, hope I can get the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Anthropologie (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Apply online and got email the next day to an interview being held 2 days later. A bit short notice but no appt necessary just need to go in between the hours of 10 and 4:30. very casual interview done at the corner of store. It's a good idea to bring a copy of the resume because the person interviewing didn't seem to know who's coming in for the job. very general questions like describe your background, why anthropologies etc. Was told I should hear back within the following week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Anthropologie (Tulsa, OK) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online -- they suggested it. I received an email asking me to complete an opinion survey. 3 days later, I got an email asking me to come in for an interview the following Monday, and to bring a copy of my resume. I got there, and surprisingly it was one on one. The girl was a little intimidating but she seemed to get nicer as it went on. We just talked about myself, Anthro, etc, and then I had to pick out an outfit for a scenario. It was pretty easy. That night, I got an email that they had accepted me! Be prepared with your availability, and also you have to work at least part of a weekend.
