    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.

    Had one in person interview by myself. I spoke with one manager for less than half an hour and was asked to come back in a week. Came in for second interview and found out I had already been hired. Still answered questions and scheduled my first day.

    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.

    Interview

    Applied online from the Urban website did the video interview and got asked to go to a group interview. Went to the interview and believed it went pretty well but ended up not getting hired because they already hired the amount of people needed but they liked me enough to send my information to another location that was looking for potential employees so I went and did a group interview and got asked to come back for an interview with the manager and got hired 3 days later!
