    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Anthropologie.

    Interview

    Group Interview- Kind of awkward because it was conducted in the fitting room area, but very easy and friendly. There were 6 interviewees and two managers, plus we met additional managers before we left. Very straightforward for the position- just have your availability ready.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Anthropologie (Kansas City, KS).

    Interview

    applied online. They called me in to interview within two days. Interview was just small talk mostly. One on One. Was a little awkward. The interviewer seemed uninspired and I picked up on that. That made it a little difficult to make conversation. We ended up talking about the weather, yikes. What a shame, because i walked in the store that day bursting with excitement.

    Customer Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anthropologie (San Francisco, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied to Anthropologie in San Francisco online for the Customer Associate position. Additionally, I was referred by the Executive Director of North America Anthropologie Stores, which I made sure to include in my application. 4 to 5 days went by and I still hadn't been contacted by anybody so I decided to go in store myself and ask the status of my application. Next day, I get a call from management to set up an interview. That weekend, an in-person one on one interview took place.

    The person who interviewed me showed up about 10 minutes late. Her character was very personable, charismatic, relatable and just overall good-natured. The interview itself was very casual and easy-going. Felt like I was talking to a friend if anything. The interview only lasted about 15-20 minutes. She asked me about 4 or 5 questions, all of which were improptu questions. She just formulated them from the top of her head as we went. Furthermore, we discussed the duties of the floor, availability, preffered weekly hours, questions regarding flexability, etc.

    Near the end of the interview, she had initially told me that management would most likely contact me for a second interview. I asked her if it was possible we could schedule the second interview before that Thursday because that Thursday I had a different interview scheduled with Anthropologie in Corte Madera. She told me to wait there while she went to the back to contact and discuss with management. About 5 minutes later, she returned back to our interview spot and offered me the position on the spot. I accepted it.

    Advice: Just study Anthropologie's mission statement, company goals and know the target market. If you have all this down, I think you'll have a good chance of getting a job offer.
