Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Anthropologie.

Interview

I was called to come in after applying online. We sat on the couch inside the store, and it was very relaxed and casual. The conversation was easy and she asked questions surrounding customer service and how my experience could translate into being a good retail sales associate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anthropologie in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had a unique situation as the location I was applying to was immediately looking for workers as they were opening a new location, but the interview process was very comfortable and laid-back. It felt like more of a conversation rather than an interview.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anthropologie (Princeton, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Was told in an email that my interview was at 11 at the store. I showed up 10 minutes early and the store was locked and only the employees were being allowed in. At about 11:03 they finally asked me (and the other people interviewing at the same time) why we were there and eventually let us in. They told us to walk around the store to "look at the merchandise" but were really just buying time as they ran around the store getting set up for the morning opening that should've happen presumably 15 minutes earlier. We were gathered into a group of 6 people to all sit in chairs at the mall and the interviewer asked us a question and we all went around in a circle answering them. Not only was I bothered that it was never mentioned beforehand that the interview was going to be in a group but it also felt like a power move on their part. It felt extremely unprofessional and displayed a severe lack of interest in the individual associates. It felt like very vivid foreshadowing of how they would treat you if you worked there. Also, I had read online that they usually ask you to pick out outfits after the interview to show your style, and as a guy I looked forward to this part to show them my knowledge of women's style and ability to choose an outfit. Instead, they simply ended the interview after four questions and my style knowledge was left completely a mystery to them; whereas all of the other 5 girls interviewing were able to display their style through what they wore.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online on the URBN website, and a couple weeks later, they emailed me with the available times for group interviews. The interview itself was very relaxed, and the interviewer mostly asked us about our backgrounds and interests as well as a few questions about Anthropologie's business. About a week later, I was offered the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anthropologie in August 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online through Anthropologie's website and was then prompted a day or so later to complete a personality questionnaire. It's an interesting questionnaire, to say the least but if you have common sense and aren't a thief you will be fine. A few days later I was invited to a group interview. No one else showed up and the hiring manager and I had a relaxed, fairly brief conversation. She asked basic questions and then asked me to pick out an outfit for a casual date along with a housewarming gift for a friend. If you are friendly and confident you will do great! I wore a cute business casual outfit (Don't wear jeans! Look professional). Two days later I received a call to offer me the job.
