I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Urban Outfitters.
Interview Details – Was emailed about a week after submitting my resume to do an online ethics quiz. Then was scheduled for an open interview in 2 weeks. Was not asked back for a second interview
Interview Question – They were pretty cool & just wanted to get to know you. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online - interviewed at Urban Outfitters in October 2013.
Interview Details –
After applying for several positions in my area and 4 months of waiting, I finally got an email last week about scheduling an interview at the Washington D.C. store. The person seemed very interested in me over the email and I was extremely excited to finally be interviewing...until I got to the store. First off, the interview only lasted 15 minutes, and considering this was a management position I was applying for, I found that to be abnormal. Second, the interviewer didn't ask any real questions: it seemed more like a screening interview, which could have been done over the phone instead of me commuting to D.C. only to be there for 15 minutes. I was not given the opportunity to give situational examples, and not once did she ask about my management/leadership history. I have over 5 years of merchandising and leadership experience, and this was the biggest waste of time. I am more than convinced that my appearance is the reason I didn't get the job(and I am not talking about what I wore). Not only that, even after I sent a follow-up email (expressing interest and thanking her for interviewing me), I was rejected not only from the D.C. opening, but from 2 other openings on the EXACT same day. Would not be surprised if the interviewer contacted the other two stores I applied to, as that is too much of a coincidence.
I should have taken my research about UO to heart, as I am more than convinced they will not hire any minority for a management position.
Interview Question – None. If you are really skilled in Merchandising, their questions are second nature. But they asked 1)what tools do you use to determine merchandising changes(I told her Conversion rates) 2)what do you do from a visual standpoint to attract different customers from various "crowds"?
