Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

Interview

Video interview conducted on a laptop. Very straight-forward but a little impersonal... probably hard to gauge a person's character through a screen, but I feel like they do it to make sure you have the right "look" before they go forward with you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and a day later I was contacted to do the video interview. I had no prep time on my interview questions so it was easy to think of my answers before I hit record. The next day I was asked to come in for a one on one interview and it was just me and not a group. A week after the interview they told me I got the job! The interview is super laid back they basically just want to know if you have a good personality that will mesh well with everyone.

    Interview

    After applying online, you get sent and email for a video interview, which is a series of questions that you must video tape yourself answering and submit it. After the video interview, the next step is a in-person interview (may be one on one or a group interview) and also asked a series of questions.

    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.

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

    Interview

    I applied and didn't hear from them for a little over 2 weeks. During this time I called for a follow up twice lol I really wanted the job. Anyways, after 2 weeks passed I was invited to do a video interview. A few hours after I submitted it I got an email about a group interview a few days later. The group interview was laid back, just be yourself don't worry about being too professional. A couple hours after my group interview I got a call for a final interview the following day. Again be yourself, mine was one on one but this can also be a group interview depending on the store. And a few hours later I got a call offering me the job!

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email to do a video interview the next day. I didn't think I would get a call back because I found it pretty awkward. Got a call a day or two later asking me to come in for an interview, it was with one other person and 2 of the managers. It was really laid back and felt more like a conversation. They told me I'd get a call next day, I think it was actually 4 days later (granted they were really busy) and they offered me the job!

    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.
