Department Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Urban Outfitters in April 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online and talked to a recruiter via email about a job fair for the new louisville store opening in July 2012. First applied in March, then had the group interview in late April. They really stressed they you should wear what you would wear if you worked for UO. This was to get a feel for your fashion sense and all around personality. I talked 1 on 1 with several different UO recruiters about my management style, confrontations with employees and customers and how i would act in the situations, my skills and goals, etc. I felt like all they cared about during the interview was my personal style sense and retail experience. I have 1 year retail management and 7 years customer service experience, but they didn't offer me any position whatsoever and not even an explanation as to why i didn't meet their expectations. They also led me on for many months with the possibility of a position, and finally just sent me an automated email saying i don't have a position.

Department Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Urban Outfitters in May 2009.
Interview Details – i applied online. got call back within a week. she already knew i had retail experience, so she scheduled an interview. sat down 1:1 and just boasting about my experience. i used to work for hollister so we had similar systems. she asked what i learned from the company. what my role was.
Reason for Declining – the commute was 60 miles away and i finally decided not to do retail anymore.
