    Interview

    Majority of interviews with URBN stores (Terrain, Anthro, FP, Urban) are group interviews, be prepared for that. They may have you design an outfit for an imaginary client. Be assertive during the group interview but not rude. They will not give advance warning that it's a group interview. Following the interview, they will require that you complete an online character evaluation before you go any further. This asks basic questions about work ethics.

    Interview

    It was very laid back, and the interviewer recognized that the position is entry level -- meaning, you can draw on examples from job-related areas to answer. There was a focus on your personality, and ability to work with others.

    Interview

    I sent in my application online. A week later, I received an email that gave me an opportunity to take part in an online video interview. The questions were simple and you were given 30 seconds until the video started rolling (it was one way, only you are on the screen- the video will be sent to UO).

Described their own style. They called me after a couple days and offered the job but I declined it since the salary was too low.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Urban Outfitters (Providence, RI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    When the manager showed up, we (a group of about seven interviewees) went downstairs to the back. We sat in a circle, described our experience and background, and then answered questions from the manager. The entire process lasted about forty-five minutes to an hour. Everybody there was nice, but the group interview process was very awkward.

    Interview

    I applied online, when to a hiring event/ group interview, did the survey and then did the group interview. Not sure why mine seemed so out of order from the rest. Everyone was really nice, and the process wasn't over 3 weeks.

    Interview

    Was a group interview. It was really chill and since it was early they provided coffee. It started with finding two outfits to present and "sell". We got to go around the store and pick two ensembles so that was fun. Then the group interview started and it was just really laid back and more like a conversation. The questions were addressed to the whole group and we "popcorn" answered. Overall a really good experience. The managers made you feel comfortable and any nervousness just vanished.
