    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    Filled out a relatively indepth online application. Asked for work/education history, relevant portfolio pieces, and a ton of short essay type questions. Those questions ran the gamut from where you find cultural/art news, experiences with Urban stores, and your "ideal day".

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too out of the ordinary, but some of the questions seemed to be extremely strange to answer without knowing who it was that would be reading it.   Answer Question

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process is very similar to other companies. Basically an introduction of yourself, then behavioral questions, and some technical questions. The interviewer was very nice and generous about the answers I gave them. I would say just be more confident and practice most of the general questions before going in the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was simple two interviews, first was a group interview with about 8-12 people most then if you make the next step there is a online survey that you lie about no matter what they just want to hear what sounds good. After that if you pass the survey you get an email saying to come in for a 1-on-1 interview. They ask you the same questions again and if you did good they will talk to you about your pay if not they will probably tell you that they will call you.

    Submitted my application at the physical store. The interview and application consist of asking your style and your experience with difficult customer service situations. Be opinionated about your style choices and prove you have your own individual taste. As for customer service stories, just make sure you tell a story of how you satisfied an unruly customer.
