Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

Interview

I applied online and they contacted me for a video interview. The interview was online and there were questions that you have to answer while being recorded. It's through an online system that they'd provide a link for you. I applied to Urban Outfitters multiple times and this is the closest I have gotten to being interviewed. They make you do the video interview first to see if you're the type of person that they'd hire. I mean yeah they want their employees to look like the people who shop there. I guess I'm not the type of person they want to hire. Or whatever. Applying multiple times and not getting an answer back on anything is tiring. So I gave up and I'm never gonna apply again. Like whatever, they over charge for their products and some fabric materials are cheap. They're only good because they keep up with trends fast enough. Tbh I feel personally attacked by this company.

    Applied online, eventually was invited for a group interview, after which I was called and offered the position. The group interview involved a couple of styling tasks (creating an outfit from items in the store) and a meeting with one of the managers for some typical interview questions, some pertaining specifically to Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    you have to do a "hirevu" video interview that feels like you're audition to host a fashion vlog. it's definitely corporates way of sifting out those who don't look or act in line with the URBN brand. If you get through that and manage to get an in person interview, you basically got the job assuming your availability works and you act professionally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Group interview with about 4 other candidates and they would ask questions such as what you liked about Urban Outfitters, how would you describe the brand and they would be directed to the entire group and everyone would have to answer. It was best to be the first person because other people were so quick to piggy back off your answers and you would make a good impression.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters.

    Interview

    Very Casual. Group interview process with laid back interviewer. Many questions about your personal style and where you pull inspiration from. Seems almost like they are more concerned with validating how cool you are rather than how qualified for the job you may be. All in all an easy process with some interesting questions to try to determine your style and hobbies.
