    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    It was a very relaxed process. It started out with a video interview which I was able to complete online, and the questions were very fair and engaging. Then I went in for an in-person group interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. I didn't even finish my application, but they called me in for an interview anyway. Thus, I didn't expect much. But this review is mostly in regards to the handling of applicants. I came in to a "hiring event," essentially just a cesspool of desperate hopefuls who were told to sit on a small display (bench?) hardly big enough to fit all of us until the manager decided she was ready to invite us in. It started more than 30 minutes late. We went into a room to answer questions one at a time. There was no apparent order, as it was a fairly informal interview. We were permitted to dress however we liked. Manager obviously had one favorite, but besides that no facial reactions. She looked tired and borderline annoyed that we were there. We were told we'd get an answer by the next day. I sent a follow-up email, but received no answer. Still haven't received an answer, but it's been over two months so I obviously understand that it was a no. I just would have preferred that they told me rather than ghosting me. Extremely unprofessional manager and a terrible experience.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied in person, and submitted my resume etc. Was called back for another interview. The interview was a group interview with a few other people. Very low-key and pretty easy. The hiring manager was a young woman easy to talk to. Overall fine experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was me and one other person in a group interview. The interview seemed very unprepared and only asked us 4 questions, making the interview for both of us a total of 10 minutes. Didn't really get to know us or ask us any questions that weren't on the online application.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Dedham, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It took extremely long and then the next month someone walked in and asked to be hired and they got the job without question. I on the other hand had to go through 3 - 4 meaningless interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and about a week later, received a link to an online questionnaire and video interview. The survey was about 60 questions, but pretty basic and only took about 15-20 minutes to do. Just use your common sense lol. The video interview was super awkward but you can practice as much as you want. I got an email from the manager a few days later inviting me to a group interview. There were two other people and it was fairly easy, just make sure you speak up first. The manager told us he's get back to all of us in the next few days so I'm waiting to hear back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Cambridge, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a group interview which is always awkward. It makes it feel like such a competition and didn't feel like the interviewer really cared to hear what you personally had to say. All basic questions were asked, at first people stayed quiet because nobody wanted to be the first to speak, then everybody wanted to be heard somewhere in the middle to still look proactive. The questions were a mix of typical interview questions and weirder ones designed to gauge your personality.
