    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email to do a video interview the next day. A day after that they emailed me about a hiring event they're holding. When I came in for that it was a group interview with 2 other people. The questions were fairly easy and we were all relaxed and friendly. After that, the manager told all 3 of us to wait to speak to another manager separately. After I spoke with the second manager I was certain I got the job because he said I did a good job and that I'll be hearing from him soon. I got an email the next day saying I didn't get the job.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Boston, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. I didn't even finish my application, but they called me in for an interview anyway. Thus, I didn't expect much. But this review is mostly in regards to the handling of applicants. I came in to a "hiring event," essentially just a cesspool of desperate hopefuls who were told to sit on a small display (bench?) hardly big enough to fit all of us until the manager decided she was ready to invite us in. It started more than 30 minutes late. We went into a room to answer questions one at a time. There was no apparent order, as it was a fairly informal interview. We were permitted to dress however we liked. Manager obviously had one favorite, but besides that no facial reactions. She looked tired and borderline annoyed that we were there. We were told we'd get an answer by the next day. I sent a follow-up email, but received no answer. Still haven't received an answer, but it's been over two months so I obviously understand that it was a no. I just would have preferred that they told me rather than ghosting me. Extremely unprofessional manager and a terrible experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    My job interview was just a group interview. I tried to be the first to answer the questions as soon as they were asked. The interviewer just asked typical questions that you would expect to be asked. At the end, they asked us if we had any questions. Take this opportunity to ask questions such as, "what do you expect from an employee?" or "what is an obstacle that you had to personally overcome working here?"

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Pretty long process overall. Initial contact via email and phone interview scheduled within two weeks of applying. I was brought in for an in person, five hour interview, meeting with 5 different people, sometimes two at a time. Follow up via email from HR letting me know I was being considered and then about one a month for 4 months until the job was offered to someone else.

There were seven questions and the questions were timed (30 seconds to prepare and 3 minutes to answer the question) The questions were pretty unusual but still fun and laid back questions. (there are also practice questions, i recommend doing them) I did the interview on my laptop.
