    Seasonal Employee 2013 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and when they finally emailed me about a month or two later I had already got another job so I didn't set up an interview, but they kept emailing me so finally I just decided to go for it and set up an interview. It was one of the most relaxed interviews I've ever had. She mostly just asked me about what trends I liked, what bloggers I follow, and my knowledge of Urban Brands. It was suppose to be a group interview, but whoever emailed me gave me the wrong time so I was there an hour before everyone else so I had a solo interview. She also told me what kind of stuff I would be doing and then I was offered the job a week later I believe, but I had booked a plane ticket home for thanksgiving thinking i didn't receive the job and they needed me to work black friday so I had to turn it down.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview, with about 20 applicants. One thing I remembered was that someone asked about the employee discount. I think this caused her not to get hired. Don't ask before you're hired!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I first applied online and then waited a few weeks. Then I got an email to fill out an ethics test online. Another week or so passed and I got an email to come to the store for a group interview. The interview went well, but they said nothing after. A week later they emailed me to come in for another group interview. This interview also went well, but they said nothing as we left. Another week later I finally got a call back with a job offer. They told me my pay and I accepted. It was ridiculously drawn out for such a simple position.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews. The first one was a group interview but two people did not show up, so it was me and one other individual. The manager interviewed us first and then I got a call two weeks later for an interview with the store manager. Then got hired the week after.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application and a week later was asked to take a survey. Two weeks later I was invited to a group interview. There were only 3 other people in my group. The interview was laid back and extremely quick. It took less than 10 minutes which was kind of odd. We were asked simple questions like : "why should we hire you?" ,"availability?", "what do you like about Urban Outfitters?" and "What do you know about customer service?" . It was simple but didnt feel like a proper interview.It was very rushed. Overall it was easy and would recommend applying.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I first filled out a very detailed application online before being emailed about a group interview. Questions were very simple - we answered in a round robin fashion, with the interviewer even answering the questions herself. Be personable, charming and dress as if you shop at UO if you want a chance at being hired. They hardly care about past retail experience so long as you can answer questions about LP. I was emailed a test to take online before being called about a second interview with the store manager. My second interview was very laid back and took less than 10 minutes. He asked what I do in my spare time to see if I was a good fit; nothing about experience really. Got a call about a week later. Entire process took about two weeks.

    Department Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Too much done online. Went through multiple questionnaires and video interview processes before being deemed eligible for a formal interview with the Store Manager. Once I got that interview, it was unprofessional (done in the store with customers walking around us and being distracting). The manager made it clear that there was a "promote from within" agenda with the company and that I could work as an associate to 'show good faith' sort of thing. I could tell that the position would be dangled so that they could get someone to work the floor during the busy holiday hours.

    Sales Associate (Seasonal) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a job interview via my email in 3 days. I think the process was so fast because it's seasonal right now. It was a group interview, there were 3 other people and me. Everyone in the group was very intimidating but I was feeling very confident of myself and how I was answering the questions. Sadly I didn't get the job though.. Probably because I didn't have no experience unlike the others in the group.
