    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New Orleans, LA).

    Interview

    you have to do a "hirevu" video interview that feels like you're audition to host a fashion vlog. it's definitely corporates way of sifting out those who don't look or act in line with the URBN brand. If you get through that and manage to get an in person interview, you basically got the job assuming your availability works and you act professionally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Group interview with about 4 other candidates and they would ask questions such as what you liked about Urban Outfitters, how would you describe the brand and they would be directed to the entire group and everyone would have to answer. It was best to be the first person because other people were so quick to piggy back off your answers and you would make a good impression.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    It's a two part process. You either submit a review online or in-store. The applications are screened and, if you are a candidate, you are invited to (usually) a group interview. Before the group interview, there is an online questionnaire you have to fill out. We were always jokingly told to filled it out as if you were answering questions from your grandmother. The group interview is a little strange if you experience that.

    Interview

    Very Casual. Group interview process with laid back interviewer. Many questions about your personal style and where you pull inspiration from. Seems almost like they are more concerned with validating how cool you are rather than how qualified for the job you may be. All in all an easy process with some interesting questions to try to determine your style and hobbies.
