    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    I applied and several months later they invited me to a group interview with about six other people. We all showed up and were led downstairs into the back room, and spoke with two of the managers. The hardest part was definitely trying to get a good answer in and stand out without stepping onto the feet of the other applicants, but the questions were fairly straightforward and allowed for you to shine without putting any unnecessary pressure on anyone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied in person, and submitted my resume etc. Was called back for another interview. The interview was a group interview with a few other people. Very low-key and pretty easy. The hiring manager was a young woman easy to talk to. Overall fine experience.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters in February 2017.

    Interview

    Short interview, group interview, asked basic questions about what we do for fun, where we see ourselves in 5 years. Not a bad interview at all, in fact, it was nice getting to know the other applicants. However: Very disorganized way of notifying applicants if they got the job or not. The manager claimed he emailed me the follow up survey, he never did (checked spam and junk).... nothing.... not until I called him directly and asked, he "resends it." I took the survey, waited a week. Later, I decided to call AGAIN one week after the interview, he tells me he emailed me a rejection email (again, never got it).... I am not sure if this guy really just did not like me as an applicant or personal (I don't think I know him?) but there seemed to be a trend of "failing/ forgetting/ "not sure what happened" with sending follow up emails. I thought it was very unprofessional to not at least email me that I did not get the position, instead I had to call twice. It could honestly be a glitch on the companies email side, but I find it very rare that whoever he did decide to hire, did indeed get the following emails without having to call this manager. Very disorganized experience. I really hope my applicant paper work is shredded, cause now I am worried considering the level of disorganization I experience with just an interview... very disappointed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (San Jose, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing the job on Indeed. I needed to fill out an employee account and upload my resume. Four weeks later I recieved an e-mail to do an online interview. It wasn't with an actual person on video chat, it was just simple questions I had to record myself answering. Another four weeks later I got an e-mail asking me to fill out a survey. It had a lot of random questions. Two weeks later I got an interview. I went in and they just asked me some simple things about who are my instagram icons and what school I go to, etc. They had me come in for a second interview and asked me more things. Then, they called me in again and this time it was to meet with the manager so she could tell me I had the job. They started me two weeks after my hiring. Pretty long application and interview process, but very simple.
