    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I went to a job fair at a store location. The store managers asked me a few questions about what was going on in my life in terms of work and school. It was very fast and casual. A couple days later I got call asking me to attend a group which was very casual. Just a few questions about customer service and the rest of the time we talked about our favorite bands. We were then given a sheet with a web address to a online survey we were required to take.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    Fairly painless. Met with an HR rep and then the department manager. Very relaxed- felt more like a conversation unlike other interviews. Fairly simple and obvious questions (ie. why URBN, where do you see yourself in 5 years, etc.)
