    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Video interview conducted on a laptop. Very straight-forward but a little impersonal... probably hard to gauge a person's character through a screen, but I feel like they do it to make sure you have the right "look" before they go forward with you.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and a day later I was contacted to do the video interview. I had no prep time on my interview questions so it was easy to think of my answers before I hit record. The next day I was asked to come in for a one on one interview and it was just me and not a group. A week after the interview they told me I got the job! The interview is super laid back they basically just want to know if you have a good personality that will mesh well with everyone.

    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Austin, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    After the video interview I had an in person group interview with two other people, all three of us were hired. The interviewer was easy going which helped, some of the questions were silly like "if your friends had to describe you with a hashtag, what would it be?"

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Made it to the U.O. intern interview day which essentially is a cattle call for all of the interns applying for various positions to meet with their potential co-workers if they're chosen (I applied as a video intern).

    Interview process was relatively simple. Although I was in a big room with multiple interviews going on simultaneously, the interviewers were very friendly and nice.

    Although I didn't get the position, I received good feedback from the team and had the opportunity of seeing the hq.

    Interview

    After applying online, you get sent and email for a video interview, which is a series of questions that you must video tape yourself answering and submit it. After the video interview, the next step is a in-person interview (may be one on one or a group interview) and also asked a series of questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I completed my video interviews after receiving multiple responses over two weeks ago, but I have not heard from them yet. Reading the other people responses, I'm not doubtful that I will receive a group interview request, but it's frustrating to see that you have to wait a while to get to that part. It would show good management if they would respond in a timely fashion, or if they were rejecting people after the video bit, to respond with an email, instead of leaving them hanging. It's just common courtesy.
