    I have been working at Urban Outfitters

    Pros

    The coworkers are great people to work with, the managers are wonderful and are more like coworkers than bosses. The style they manage is efficient; every hour they assign you to a different task, things never get too boring. The discount is amazing.

    Cons

    Scheduling is difficult, only know about a week in advance when you'll be working. Going around the store organizing and making everything look absolutely perfect is a little tedious. The pay is not as great but the discount makes it worth it.

    I applied online – interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on the URBN careersforsuccess website for the holiday sales associate position. A day or two afte applying I recieved an email inviting me to the store for an interview the next day. Once in store I was asked to fill out a paper with my availability. It was a group interview consisting of about 3 people. It was very relaxed and fun- more like a conversation between all of us!
