    I have been working at Urban Outfitters part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers and friends but working there was terrible with terrible pat and rude managers.

    Cons

    Very poor pay. I got a 45 cent raise after dedicating two years of my life to a disgusting company and mean people very shady

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    After being prompted to apply by a friend who had just started working there I applied myself. Applied online, it took about two days from the initial application to receive an email telling me that I'd have a webcam interview. The webcam interview was pretty relaxed since I was by myself and could practice my answers before recording and sending them in. Afterwards there was another two day wait before I was called in for a one on one interview with the stores manager at that time.

    With it being Urban I dressed casually [slightly over sized gray vneck, rolled skinny jeans w/ a one knee torn out, a denim/leather jacket, and boots]. The urban at which I applied was one of the more casual I'd seen, the manager was wearing a gray tshirt, a green beanie and jeans w/ no accessories when she interviewed me.

    I've never worked in retail before so the interview went great until she started to ask me questions on how I would deal w/ customers and merchandise. Tho I gave "nice" answers I basically bs'd thro the end of it. They called two days later to tell me I wasn't selected.
