    Interview

    The interview process was painless! After a first-round phone interview, I then progressed to an in-person interview at Home Office. I met with the team I was interviewing to join, answered their questions and was able to ask my own. The recruiting department kept me up to speed with clear communication throughout the entire process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email from a recruiter shortly thereafter. Had 2 initial phone interviews (one w/ Talent, and one with who would be my direct manager). The process was very quick. They invited me into the office (train, food, uber to the office was covered!) where I got to meet the team. It was all very laid back.

    Distribution Supervisor Interview

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview initially covering my job history, why I’m looking, etc. I was then offered an on site interview. The HR associate was insanely polite throughout the entire process. I then met with two of the warehouse managers... very standard interview questions read off paper. They did not seem interested in me or my answers, didn’t go into much detail regarding the position, and most questions I had felt like an inconvenience for them to answer. Having interviewed people myself, I definitely felt guilty wasting their time. The interview concluded and I was walked out by the HR associate again who couldn’t have been nicer and said there were more interviews to conduct. I should hear back from them with a yes or no in about two weeks. I never received an email or phone call.

    Interview

    Very brief, typical online 1-way interview. One of the question was very vague about a trend I thought was important. I didn't know if they were talking about trends in the finance, marketing, fashion, etc. Made it hard to answer when I couldn't ask any questions for clarity

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    I only made it to the first round of the hiring process which is the video round. They give you questions and you record your answers which was less pressure unlike traditional interviews.
