Sales Associate Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Thousand Oaks, CA) in June 2015.

Interview

First you apply online. Its super simple. Then you'll receive a confirmation email and you'll have to take a survey to basically review your people skills and basic math skills. Then if they like you, you'll do a video interview where you have to answer questions displayed on a screen. This was slightly offensive because they need to see your face before they even sort of allow you to talk to get a real interview. Then they'll call you in for a one on one interview where they ask you a few simple questions and tell you how they will give you a lot of hours and pay raise opportunities. This is a huge lie. Everyone except for the managers receives about 8-12 hours a week with minimum wage pay and no comission.

He asked about my past work and school experiences, what I like about urban outfitters, if I've had retails experience (I haven't) and what I like to do in my free time. I got hired on the spot basically. He was really chill, not intimidating at all.

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Dallas, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I walked into the store and requested a paper application. I filled out the app and after turning it was asked to stick around for a second so the mens dept manager could talk with me. He asked me some standard questions about my past work experience and why I wanted to work for UO. After that he told me that he would call me back to schedule a sit down interview. I got a call back a couple of days later and came in the same week for a group interview. I was hired the same week.

    Interview

    In the midst of the relentless summer sun, autumn feels like a lifetime away. In truth, only three short months separate us from crisper days, changing leaves, and most of all, a fresh season to explore new trends and styles. While the cooler temperatures always mean revisiting light layering and cozy knits, this fall is an opportunity to continue exploring your personal autumn-inspired wardrobe. Here are just a few items on my wishlist for this fall to get you energized and inspired to create your own!

    Interview

    Group interview then brought in for a one on one to scope you out but you most likely got the job by then. Invitation on the same day through the phone to come in for a paid training day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    It was very casual, but be prepared for professional questions. I expected fun and creative questions, but I did not get any like that. I think they look for people that look like models (facially and skinniness) so if you look like the models on their website then you'd be a shoe-in no matter your work experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Madison, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very long interview process, it took about 2-3 weeks for me to get an in person interview even though it wasn't a very serious job. I had to create a profile on their website, after about a week I received an email inviting me to do a video interview where I answered a couple randomized questions about my work experience and personally asking about me. (they strongly encourage you to be yourself and act outgoing, it was very laidback.) After that I got a call a week later to do an in person interview, they didn't actually ask any serious questions then they just asked me about myself and what I plan on doing in the future and then they offered me the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (State College, PA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Brought you into hotel conference room with everyone interviewing at the same time. I could hear the other employees asking the candidates same questions that I would be getting and correct her on how to answer the question. Score for me! Lose for her - the lack of privacy was a bit embarrassing as they asked you how you would deal with a shoplifter, what kind of music you listen to, what you do in your free time, and other weird questions that only quirky UO people would ask.

    • If you saw someone shoplifting at the store, how would you handle the situation?   1 Answer
