Retail Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience
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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Las Vegas, NV) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I remember I applied online once I turned 18, then since I really wanted that job I called about 3 days later & asked to speak with the hiring manager, told him my name & when I applied, then I asked if we can schedule an interview at his earliest convenience, he then told me they actually go through all applications every end of the week & if they like my application they'll give me a call. I remember about a week or week & a half after that, I get a call regarding an interview as a Retail Sales Associate at Urban Outfitters, so I accepted. I went to the interview prepared & had knowledge of the company's timeline & a lot about the brand & it's style. I'm pretty sure all Urban Outfitters interviews are group interviews so heads up, there's competition. But don't be intimidated, be confident & know what you're saying, they love that. One main thing to keep in mind is to dress to impress, not in the business casual way, the Urban Outfitters way, show your unique style, that's what they're about!

    Interview

    Applied online and had recording interview. Didn't hear anything for over a month then finally heard that they wanted me to complete an online survey. At that point I had assumed I didn't get it and had looked for employment elsewhere. I kept checking online though and it always said my video was still under review.

    That was a week ago. Haven't heard back yet. Tempted to call the hiring manager because I really want to know if I have an in person interview or not so my time won't be wasted.
