    Interview

    I applied online and after one day I got an email asked me to do video interview.
    After one day I got an email asking me to the interview event. Two days later I got an email telling me they are not moving forward to my application. Summarize: You don't need to dress like "Urban Outfitters" style and you don't need any related experience. I think they are looking for out-going, and talkative people.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to take the ethics survey about an hour later. The next day I was sent an email asking to come in for an interview later that week. I went in for the interview and it was a one on one with one of the managers. It was pretty chill and it felt like a conversation rather than an interview. He just asked me to describe myself, why I wanted to work for urban, my availability, and how soon I would be able to start. He pretty much hired me on the spot and told me to look out for an email that same day explaining the next steps. I got an email later that night offering me the position,

    Interview

    Applied online, went in for group interview a few days later. Me and two other interviewees sat on the couch while the interviewer (the manager) asked us questions from across the table.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Short and sweet. Met with a manager and he asked me questions about my history and my personality. It was very nice of them to hire me since I had no retail experience but since it was a seasonal position I think they're more lenient about that stuff. I appreciate it!

    It was a good experience. You fill out the application online. Then you get an email with a link to an online interview. You must have a webcam phone or computer. There would be a question with a video example then you answer the question based on what you watched.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Newport Beach, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied at the end of august and didn't hear back until a couple weeks ago about the job fair they had which was a group interview. After I did that, I got invited to another interview with the store manager. There were about 6 other people there and we all went around and said a little about ourselves and answered about two questions each. After that she told us more about the job and what we would be doing and said she would let us know in a couple days. I haven't heard anything yet but i will update once i do.
