    Interview

    I applied online. And a few days later I got asked to do a HireVue interview which you film on your laptop. They asked about 6 questions and you have time to think about your answer. Some questions are 30 seconds and others are 1-2 minutes long. 2 months later I got asked to attend a group interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Once you submit the application, they'll call you if they like you for the second round of the process. It's a group interview with some manager and other applicants. Honestly, it is just a couple of random questions to see if YOU fit THEIR brand. If you don't, you probably won't get the job.

    So far I’ve made it through the video interview process and am going in for a group interview this week. 6 questions about yourself, and your interests. I’m pretty sure they judge your style during that process aswell, so dress in their style.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Personality and Style Based. If you look cool, seem cool, they'll hire you. There's not much to it. They ask you questions about yourself to get a feel of your personality.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email that week about doing an online interview where you send in recorded answers. I had experience working for a retailer and I've been obsessed with the brand for years so I thought I would be well-prepared for the interview by just looking through some questions and reading about the company through their site. I was so wrong. The questions they asked were pretty hard. I submitted my answers and didn't hear back. I think they are looking for a very specific creative person and I didn't fit the criteria.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Fort Worth, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    You apply online first, and upload your resume, answer a few questions about current and/or past jobs, etc. Then, a few days later, you will get an email asking you to complete a video interview. When you click on the link, you are asked to upload your resume again, and then you complete the video interview. The video interview records what you say and you can't look back and change what you said, so its a fair one-take only for everyone. Then, they will email you asking to meet with you a a Hiring Event, where you and other possible employees then do a group interview with one of the managers. They will then call you within the week to offer you the job or not.
