    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.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    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.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back like a week later and was asked to do a video interview within 48 hrs. Interview was 7 questions. 5 were video questions where you got 30 sec to prepare and like 3 mins to talk. I would definitely recommend doing the practice questions to get comfortable. 2 questions were written and had no time limit. I'm still waiting to hear back from this since I just completed it today.

    Interview

    Applied online and then was invited to do an online video interview. Recorded myself after looking at some questions. For me, there was unlimited prep time. It wasn't so bad. However, I haven't heard back from them.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Not even in person. You just submit a video to hirevue and they decide based on your looks not your skills and what makes you unique from other people. Not much else to say about it but they are very petty.

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was a huge group of individuals who was interviewing.
    It seems liked they chose people who dressed and presented more "hip" and outgoing which is obvious due to the high-notion of the company itself..

    • It consisted of basic questions, going around to each person asking about their goals, education and work history.   Answer Question

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Scottsdale, AZ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online at the UO Scottsdale Waterfront location. About 2 hours after I submitted my application, I received a call from a manager to schedule an interview. When I came in to the interview, the manager sat down with me and asked me honestly 5 questions. The interview lasted 15 minutes at most. Manager then thanked me and told me she'd get back to me by the following Monday. Monday rolled around and I called in, to find that the woman I interviewed with was no longer employed at the company and that they had undergone a "restructuring" and weren't sure how many people they needed to hire, and they would get back to me in 3-4 days. They didn't. Very unprofessional process on their end.
