    Interview

    I asked in person at a store if they were hiring and they happened to be holding a group interview the next day which I was invited to join, but still needed to submit/apply online to be in the system. I started with a group interview, and then my second interview was a smaller group interview with outfitting challenges.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Anthropologie (Santa Monica, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through the store website. They sent me a survey to take a couple days later. Then a week after that, they asked me to come in for an interview. The interview was a group interview with two other people. It was very casual. It took place on the couch in the middle of the store. The interview was very straight forward.

    Online application, HireVue video interview, in person interview. They hire from within often so my position was filled by an internal hire. They were great about keeping my resume on file and reaching out about similar opportunities in different locations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Anthropologie (Costa Mesa, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The entire process took about three weeks, which was too long if you ask me. I completed the online application, a week later I received the online assessment and after completing that I received an open interview invitations five days later. The open interview is engaging and not overwhelming, do your research and be comfortable with the company style and demographics. A few days after that I received a call for an interview with the general manager. I thought for sure I'd be in the running to be hired, after all I did excel in the open interview and made myself known and I do have plenty of retail experience and fit in with the overall Anthropologie style. My interview was scheduled for 3 pm, so I arrived timely and fifteen minutes early, however, once I got there the general manager who called to set up the interview made it seem like I was late and accused me of it too. For reasons, I will never know her schedule was changed and she was under the impression that the interview would start at 2:30 pm. In turn they put me in an uncomfortable position, accused me of being late when I was early, and I did my best to answer all her questions under the pressure of only having ten minutes to interview because she rudely let me know she had to be back on the floor by 3 pm. By far the worst interview experience of my life. It was so unprofessional to accuse someone of being late when it reality your schedule changed and I was not given the proper opportunity to interview. I've never been late in my life for anything.

    Customer Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Anthropologie (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email 3 days later to do a survey. The survey was about ethics, drugs, alcohol. The following night I received an email at 10.44pm to see if I could come in for an interview the following afternoon. Which I could make.

    When I got to the store I was told to walk around the front of the store until they were ready for me. Another girl came in for the interview as well. I didn't realize it was going to be a group interview. We talked a little bit before they sat us down for the interview. It was very casual, we sat on a couch that was in the store. The interviewer would ask us a question and we each took turns answering. It was basic interview questions with a few fashion questions thrown in. Ex. What our fashion inspiration was? What our general inspirations were? Why Anthropologie? What are two words my previous employer would use to describe me.

    An hour after the interview I received an email for a second interview with the store manager the next day (tomorrow). So hopefully it goes well!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Anthropologie (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and got an email inviting me to a group interview a couple of days later. The first interview was fairly simple and they asked us about our fashion icons and what aesthetic we thought we represented. I received an email inviting me to a second interview about a week later where there was about 5 other girls and we were asked to style an outfit based on scenarios given to us. After the interview I was sent a link to an online questionnaire and called about a week later to be offered the job.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate because it was my first job offer and I was really excited. I think that if you have greater experience you can negotiate.

    Temp Sales Staff Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Anthropologie (Pasadena, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Very laborious effort put forward to work even on a temporary status with this retailer! There were initial phone calls, then an open interview with other prospects and then a call back that involved styling outfits for invented situations and customers. Overall, a good process, but it seemed bias and a bit juvenile. Lots of pressure to make sure candidate was "Anthro" material...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Anthropologie (Pasadena, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited to their open interview session about a week later. Interviewed with eight other girls. The interviewer was friendly and nice but didn't seem to take any notes nor mention anything about the survey (maybe she only emailed it to qualified applications, not sure). Lasted about an hour in total. No difficult questions, very simple interview.
