Employment at Urban

Sales Associate (Former Employee) New Brunswick, NJ

Pros- 40% off of clothing (the ultimate PRO)
- somewhat flexible if you give them you're availability

Asked questions like: why Urban; situation with customer example of how you would handle it. Often retail interviews are quite similar. Just dress like an UO employee would dress, wear something non revealing but in tune with their clothing. Know atleast three of the brands they sell, and be able to tell them something in detail about one of them. They asked me who my favorite designer was, and I was able to mention one of the founders of the brands they carry. Just do a 10 minute google search and you should be fine!

Cons- management is very strict and pretty mean
- scrutinize you're ability to do all tasks
- expect a lot fast
- search you multiple times on shift, especially if closing
- closing takes about 2 hours post door locking

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
